Bitcoin mid-Jan Update

Bitcoin’s selling pressure may be gaining momentum. It did bounce at the 50 DMA & then ran to 17,000 but since then, has broken below the 50 DMA once again.

Further to the original post made here on Jan 1 2018, I had published two chart updates for Bitcoin on Twitter & StockTwits, on Jan 3 and Jan 9. For easy reference, I am posting all the 3 charts here:

Now here is the latest Update (Jan 14, 2018)

Keeping the fundamentals and the craze for cryptos aside, now that the 50 DMA has been conclusively broken, I expect continued selling pressure on Bitcoin for some time until it finds a floor in Jan / Feb. This is not to say there will be no interim bounces – after all, a daily trading range of 10-20 % is very normal for Bitcoin.

The chart below reflects my current forecast for Bitcoin with targets for Jan & Feb. The bearish targets of course are subject to 13,000 level being broken decisively. (I do not hold any BTC currently but will start buying if it gets to the 9000 – 10000 range)
