• In the BTCUSD technical analysis from 2 days ago (see below), our bias was slightly bearish, with our bitcoin price forecast also taking into consideration that Bitcoin may be dancing around the $20k round number, before it reveals where it wants to go. Despite our bearish tendency, we did mention in the video that should the Bitcoin 4-hour candle close above $20500, then the stage is given to the bulls and the bearish case would be over (for now)
  • Bitcoin price reached $21855, a 6.6% above that line in the sand of $20,500 (and congradulations for those who may have taken a Long and enjoyed that move or some of it)
  • From here on, we are at the top of a range and may be extended. The responsible action for the profitable Long trader, who has accumialted profit on that Long is to, at least, take partial profit. Even for the simple reason that others like him may tend to do that. And new traders considering to buy Bitcoin, should be careful that it might be a little late to do that, and can try to target a lower entry price.
