BTC/USD: Technical Outlook, Edition #15 (07/06/21) - Wyckoff Special Edition
Are you trying to understand Wyckoff Schematics, Fake-outs? Let's tackle advanced price-action analysis for the BTC/USD in this edition
Bitcoin nears its twentieth day of consolidating inside a triangle-like pennant, ranging around the mid-30K USD zone.
There have been many fake-out (false breakout) attempts throughout this consolidation. Before we go any further, here's a simplified walkthrough of how fake-outs occur:
Lure in and trap liquidity on either end (i.e. long, short)
When volatility picks up - SQUEEZE
Clear positions before the next move
Market participant's stops are engaged, causing a domino effect of mass liquidations
Coordinated FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt) can exacerbate the already precarious position of over-leveraged traders. This pessimistic sentiment can act as the catalyst for inflaming market volatility to new levels.
When mapping out the next random walk BTC/USD decides to embark on, it is essential to consider the plausible possibilities. So let's explore them below, starting with the highest time frame and finishing with the lowest:
Weekly (W1) Chart:
However unlikely this gigantic bearish head and shoulders may be, it may still occur if the bulls' lose support at the USD 30K neckline.
Daily (D1) Chart:
One can see the symmetrical wedge forming on the daily (D1) charts. Nevertheless, aside from the 4-hourly (H4) fake-outs, the pennant still looks neutral and intact.
A break to the upside would offer the bulls an opportunity to push BTC/USD as far as USD 46K, where many trapped buyers are waiting to get out at breakeven. Conversely, the bears will have the chance to swipe BTC/USD down to sub-USD 30K, or lower, should the macro 0.5 fib retracement level break down at USD 34K.
4 Hour (H4) Chart:
The H4 BTC/USD chart above is a little trickier to decipher. However, a comparison identifies some resemblance to Wyckoff Accumulation and Distribution Schematics - with Type 2 Accumulation or Distribution appearing to be the more synchronised of the four most-likely variations below.
Type 1: Distribution
Type 1: Accumulation
Type 2: Distribution
Type 2: Accumulation
