Sorry to have abandoned all you beautiful people during a market downturn but alas, sometimes things overlap in life, and sacrifices must be made. We’re back in action now though, and hopefully at an equally important time: right at a market inflection point & potentially resumed bull run!
Lets jump in
Total Market Cap - 6H - click to view:
Total Market Cap chart is looking good here. Nicely broken out of it’s down-trend and moving up through all intraday EMAs as well as forming “Impulsive > Corrective > Impulsive” type structure (AKA, higher lows & higher highs). This is what we want to see for a resumed Bull Mkt.
BTCUSD - 6H - click to view:
BTCUSD also looking good here. We have broken back above the lower boundary of the outlined red S/R Range - the same range that strongly rejected price twice prior - and we will likely get a Bull Flag up & out of this. I suspect we may get a corrective 2nd low to make a Double-Bottom which will fill out the flag, first. We know we’re wrong if the 200EMA breaks short. Always gotta have that line in the sand…
ETHUSD - 6H - click to view:
ETHUSD, same deal. Looking for a Bull Flag now that the overarching down-trend has broken long once more. I see a coming double-bottom in the yellow-circled area, which will complete the flag formation and drive price higher. From there, the next chart catalyst is the red area above.
RUNEUSD - 6H - click to view:
RUNE is moving really nicely these last few weeks, and I believe we’re just starting to see the beginning of what it’ll do in the next. As with BTC & ETH above, I think we’ll see a Bull Flag form here which will help generate the force needed to break the DSTL (Downward-sloping Trendline) of which it’ll be hitting for the 3rd time. 3rd touch being the strongest chance of a rejection, I think we’ll be stuck here for a while as price forms a larger flag than is required for the other pairs. I don’t think we’ll see a heavy pullback though… Just sideways for a bit, after which we tackle previous highs.
LUNAUSD - 6H - click to view:
LUNA has been doing extremely well since I outlined it as one of my top picks in the Spring of last year. It had a pullback after the 3rd-touch Catalyst I outlined would push price down before Christmas, but we’re back up to ATH now, and looking at maybe a short-term flag re-testing previous ATH as New Support. After that, the next catalyst is the yellow circle above, in the upper-right.
Reader Request: ATOMUSD - 8H - click to view:
ATOM didn’t really pull back that hard in January. Not as bad as the rest, anyway. Nor has it run as hard either - it’s only up about 3x since the high that formed when it first launched. For what many consider to be a crypto Blue Chip, ATOM is, by most metrics, underpriced. I expect ATOM to do well in the next leg (which, thanks to the Total MC chart, I believe will be “UpOnly”).
Reader Request: APEUSD - 6H - click to view:
APE looks like it could be turning around here. We have a recent 3rd touch on the lower boundary of this might-be flag, and it so happened to fall at an exact double-bottom as well, aligning perfectly with the previous intraday swing-low. I think this is an easy trade back up to the top of the flag for about 25%, and what’s nice about it is the clear line-in-the-sand for when we’re wrong: it’s when price closes a higher-volume 4H candle below that recent low, invalidating the double-bottom & the flag.
Reader Request: WAXUSD - 6H - click to view:
I like WAX here too - I think it will continue back toward previous ATHs but can’t say exactly when it’ll get there as it is more corrective in nature than many other crypto charts. I don’t see a tremendous amount of structure in this current area, but typically lower caps like WAX still follow the Total MC chart, and this will likely form a Bull Flag like what I’m expecting with the others now that it’s broken out of the over-all down trend.
I’m cutting it a little short here, as my internet has been off and on all weekend making it quite frustrating to chart and get this episode done. As I mentioned with WAX, for the other lower-cap coins that were requested, the bullishness displayed in the Total MC chart should be a boon to these lower caps as well. I believe we’re heading towards a Total MC climb soon, and CT sentiment & general lack of engagement points to the same. A run up now would be pretty “max pain” after all this chop, which side-lined a lot of capital. With a fairly impulsive leg up, shorts would get obliterated and that sidelined capital would come back to play. I think we’ll see a bullish Summer ahead!
