Following the 6k bottom, I bought on the way down and up with an average in of 8.5k and sold 50% of that for an average of 11.4k. I am now looking to either trade back in with the remaining 50% or sell the balance.
What is the BTCUSD market doing?
We have completed 5 waves and are in the correction. I am comfortable we have completed (a) and (b) and are now in (c). The chart has labels for the minor wave count within the (a) and (b) waves. The minor wave count makes this a wave, which would often see wave (c) about the same length as (a). If this holds, an initial target for (c) would be around 9.6k. This would represent a 0.382 retrace of the 6-11.8k bull wave and a 2.0 extension of (a). It coincides with various other support shown on the chart.
What happens after that?
There are various scenarios but I see three that are more likely to happen:
1) We are actually just in the (A) leg of an and the current ( ) are minor waves within it. This would allow for a retrace back up as part of the (B) wave before another corrective (C) wave. My conviction is that under this scenario we would see the (B) retest the recent high at 11.8k.
2) This (c) completes the retrace and we enter a new 1-5 impulse wave up to 14-15k and beyond.
3) This wave down continues as part of a 1-5 impulse wave down.
My conviction is that (1) or (2) will happen, so I will be on the look out for the reversal around 9.6k. The target at this stage will be the 11.8k with the opportunity to let it run if it looks like it is a new impulse wave rather than an . The stop loss would be at the bottom of this local (9.4k). This presents a very nice risk reward (R:8). However it is a risky trade because, until we break the 13k area, I think we are still in a large bear wave.
(c) might not get to the target, going up from here or stopping around the 10.2k area. If it doesn't I'll wait out until I see clear signs of a new impulse wave.
If we break through the 9.6k area I will look to sell my remaining 50% balance at the 9.4k area.
The target is now 11k, what would be the 0.618 fib retrace of the A wave down, which coincides with the long term diagonal down and the resistance we saw on the way up in the recent bear wave.
Tight stop loss around 9.3k which gives an R:4. If it goes through that I think it will head to about 9k and I'll potentially re-enter there.
I'll only enter if I can see a reversal.
p.s. I will try and avoid saying things like this:
" It looks like we will get to ....."
Key area hit and a 'bounce' off it
Retrace was minor (0.382)
