TRADE IDEA:

BUY: Bitcoin 
21 August 2019

CRYPTO-CURRENCY               : Bitcoin (BTC/USD)
TYPE                                          : Buy
TREND                                       : Up
PROBABILITY PREDICTION  : Medium
 

CHART ANALYSIS:

Looking at the weekly chart of Bitcoin, we can see that there has been a strong Rounding Bottom pattern (Blue line) forming since January 2018.

The current price has been testing a critical level at $11,557, which if it breaks above we will see an influx of buyers which will cause bitcoin’s price to rocket.  

We’ll use the Top-Down formula to calculate the next target price for bitcoin.

Target = (Top – Bottom) + Top

             = ($11,607 – $3,197) + $11,607

             = $20,017

This means, we can expect bitcoin to rally another 72% to $20,017…
