It appears that SPY has reached its cyclical peak, and it is likely to undergo a cooling-off period, especially throughout the summer.

Crypto Market Update 01/31/2023 #39

It’s been a while since the last market update, so let’s do a short recap. In the last market update, we were talking about the FUD on some exchanges, and finally, we had the FTX event and all the collateral damage around it. This black swan event created the capitulation that tends to happen near the end of a bear market. If we look at past cycles, we had one or two capitulations created, but a black swan every time.

Crypto Market Update 11/7/2022 #36

BTC is ranging since the end of August. Not a lot has changed during our last updates, rather than we are still in the main FIB level and that could be a sign of accumulation or just a trap before a final capitulation.

27 Jun '22

Crypto Market Update #27

After reaching the main log level (see chart), BTC had a shy relief rally last week. For the moment RSI remains very oversold but possibly we haven't seen the bottom yet as we're still inside a bear flag for the moment.

Read more
13 Jun '22

Crypto Market Update #26

Read more
09 May '22

Crypto Market Update #24

A short market update this time, as we are still waiting for the earlier pointed out levels. For the moment, BTC broke down the channel or possible bear flag to go to the main previous support (First blue box inside the yellow one). That level has been key for the last year, so we might see a bounce around this level.

25 Apr '22

Crypto Market Update #23

Three weeks after our last market update, not a lot has changed in the markets from a technical analysis point of view. BTC was not able to achieve the orange level as it began to create bearish divergences in the 4h timeframe being a sign of buyers losing momentum.

On our last market update, there was still a lot of uncertainty on the Russian/Ukraine situation. As Russia laid their cards on the table last hours, we want to clarify again the earlier levels we have been talking about in case the market decides to decline more.

Read more
21 Feb '22

Crypto Market Update #18

After breaking out the descending channel, BTC is now retesting this point. For the moment, that could be considered as a normal retrace in a normal environment situation. However, we can see how BTC is mirroring S&P500, which is in a descending trend due to the macro-political situation of Russia and Ukraine.

Read more
08 Dec '21

11 Nov '21

Crypto Market Update #6

After reaching ATH last week, we are now in consolidation mode. We have recalculated the Main GP (golden pocket/yellow box) with the last movement now. That GP would be the last support in case of a dump, but it is quite probable that BTC will keep consolidating in the upper range.

Read more
20 Oct '21

Crypto market update #5

BTC continues its own rally without a major retracement. That constant ascending channel scenario is the same behaviour we had from October until December of last year. These kinds of movements allow the price to move up without creating major bear divergences, which is a very good and “healthy” sign.

Crypto Market Update - Analysing market cycles #4

During last week, BTC had a nice run and even surpassed the first level without any problem. That tends to be a sign of bullishness but after that, it needs to cool down a bit to probably continue the trend if there is not any Black swan around.

Crypto Market Update #2
