In this video, Nick a cryptocurrency analyst discusses the technical analysis of Bitcoin (BTC) on a 1-hour time frame and identifies a potential triangle pattern breakout. The video also includes a trading strategy and longer-term analysis.
Nick begins by discussing the technical analysis of BTC on a 1-hour time frame. Nick identifys a potential triangle pattern, which is a bullish continuation pattern. Triangle patterns are formed when price action converges between two trendlines, creating a narrowing triangle shape. Nick explains that triangle patterns can be unpredictable, but they often result in a breakout in the direction of the prevailing trend.
Nick identifies the current triangle pattern as a bullish one, based on the structure of the waves (a, b, c, d, e) and the fact that it is forming in an uptrend. Nick anticipates a breakout to the upside, with a price target of $35,790 to $36,638.
Nick also discusses the e-wave within the triangle pattern. The e-wave is often the smallest and most difficult wave to predict. It can be a fake-out move before completing the pattern, or it can be the actual breakout move. Nick recommends waiting for a clear breakout above the resistance trendline before entering a long position.
Nick shares a trading strategy for the bullish triangle pattern breakout. The strategy involves placing a stop loss below the swing low of the triangle and targeting a profit-taking level of $35,790 to $36,638. This gives a risk-reward ratio of 1:2.
Nick then examines the longer-term analysis of BTC on the daily and weekly charts. Nick highlights low volumes and potential corrective price action. However, Nick also predicts a weekly close above the 50 EMA, which would be a bullish sign.
Nick notes that BTC is overbought on the weekly chart, which suggests that a market reversal and profit-taking may be on the horizon.
