Technically Speaking – Bitcoin – November 24, 2023

Let’s start with the big boy of the bunch, Bitcoin. ๐Ÿš€

BTCUSD Monthly Chart – Click to enlarge.

$BTC‘s October close was a big deal because it put Bitcoin back inside the Cloud but, most importantly, above the strongest level of support/resistance in the Ichimoku system, Senkou Span B.ย 

Depending on how long you’ve been reading the Litepaper, you’ll know that the Cloud is a horrible place. It’s a place where pain, misery, indecision, whipsaws, STDs, Putin, Hamas, fake beef, influencers, and Satan exist. ๐Ÿ‘ฟ

Between March and mid-October of this year, Bitcoin spent 32 God-forsaken consecutive weeks inside the weekly Cloud – easily the longest period of suck in Bitcoin’s history. Does that mean we’ll likely see Bitcoin spend a big chunk of months in the Cloud? Who knows.ย 

When December’s monthly candle opens, the Kijun-Sen will end up sharing the same price level as the top of the Cloud (Senkou Span A) at $41,673, creating a fairly strong resistance level. So, the question is, is there enough oomph in the technicals to support a big run-up? There sure is.ย 

BTCUSD Monthly Composite Index and Detrended Price Oscillator – Click to enlarge.

The Composite Index is not far from its fast or slow-moving averages, indicating momentum is not out of equilibrium. โš–๏ธ

The detrended oscillator shows continued upside momentum after retesting the zero line as support.ย 

Bullish Ichimoku traders and analysts are looking for one big thing to occur: an Ideal Bullish Ichimoku Breakout. For that to occur, the monthly candlestick needs to be above the Cloud, the Tenkan-Sen, and the Kijun-Sen.ย 

The Chikou Span also needs to be above the candlesticks and in open space. For that to occur, Bitcoin needs to close a monthly candlestick at $62,000.ย 

Bears looking for downside options will likely have to wait until there’s a clear monthly close below Senkou Span B and the Tenkan-Sen. In that event, the sell-off could be quite epic. ๐Ÿป

What Has Been Will Be Again

I wanted to add this to yesterday’s Litepaper, but there wasn’t enough room. ๐Ÿช—

There’s a lot of folks on social talking about the monthly RSI and how it’s above the default overbought level of 70. That’s happened before.ย

Technically Speaking – March 5, 2024

Well, like I said, this isn’t a fun Litepaper. Instead of finding wen-Moon or wen-Lambo, we will be looking for wen-bottom. ๐Ÿ’”

I’ll keep it short and sweet, quickly identifying where analysts and traders see strong support levels ahead.
