Technical Analysis of Bitcoin

Bitcoin is the first cryptocurrency to have existed and receive wide acceptance, it enjoys the support of both developers and users communities. Bitcoin cannot be stopped by the “hardfork” and this cryptocurrency can be accessed by everyone on the internet. The highest price of Bitcoin was above $19 000, a number of reasons have pushed Bitcoin to record highs, such as legalization of the currency in Japan for payments, boosted interest from other big countries, as well as the conclusion of a debate about the future of the cryptocurrency. The price of Bitcoin has been in the “bearish” phase since January 2018 but we can not say that the lowest price in December 2018 is the end of this phase. This is a highly speculative cryptocurrency and still very risky, I also think that there are lots of other cryptocurrencies with bigger potential and with less risk. When we look at the 1-year chart we can see that Bitcoin is moving in “downtrend”.  Short term support and resistance levels are $3 500 and $4 000 – If the Bitcoin jumps above $5 000 that would be a “BUY” signal and the open way to $6 000. If the Bitcoin jumps above  $10 000 that could be a strong signal of the trend reversal and the open way to $12 000. On the other side, if the BTC falls below $3 500 that will be a strong signal “SELL” signal and the next target could be around $3 000 or even $2 500.

Advice: The price of Bitcoin is still below $4 000 and this is certainly not a good sign for the cryptocurrency market. Investors who decided to invest in the Bitcoin when the trading was at its tiny fraction when compared to the highest price of this cryptocurrency, made the highest profit you could ever think of. The beginning of the 2019 year has been very negative for the cryptocurrency market and all major cryptocurrencies are still under the pressure. As for the technical picture, the Bitcoin remains in bearish phase but if the price advances above $6 000, short-term traders can enter the position with the stop loss at $5 800 and take profit at $6 800 or even $7 000.
