Bitcoin (BTC) is going sideways and often this means it's either a WXY or WXYXZ or a triangle. Patterning out the price moves shows that Bitcoin is likey carving out the final waves of the abcde symmetrical triangle formation. The below 30 minute chart shows that waves a,b,c,d are complete and IF this is the selected pathway; then e wave would likely complete at around $8,921. For Cryptos, when a triangle pattern is discerned, it's most usually a wave 2 or 4. In this case, it's blue wave 2.
Encompassing the symmetrical pattern could be another overarching downward wedge as shown in the below 4 hour chart. The wedge waves a,b,c,d are complete and e is left to go.
For further consideration is that the fractal degree of similarity between the larger wedge from which Bitcoin breacheed out of and the current smaller fractal. Recall that wedges are quite common for Cryptos as corrective and consolidation phases and thus can consecutively repeat. In effect, this is yet another way of having price go sideways to consume time. So, if the blue wave 1 is complete, then the smaller wedge is likely being designed to fill the role of blue wave 2 and once complete, allow the onset of blue wave 3. Please always remember, I'm an ardent Bitcoin Bull! These corrections represent nothing more than additional opportunities to deploy cash.
