Technical Analysis

BTC/USD: 4-HR Chart

The 4-hour chart triggered a bearish accumulation pattern on Jan 7 ’19 00:00 to counter the bullish move from a bullish accumulation on Jan 6, ’19 12:00. The BTCUSD pair from that point plummets by approximately 14.0%.

An opposite signal in the form of a bullish regular divergence was triggered on Jan 14 ’19 00:00 in combination with a bullish accumulation pattern on the same date. The Bitcoin price soared by 5.23% before plunging to a failure of bullish accumulation in succession with triple bearish accumulation on Jan 15 ’19 08:00.


The triggered failure of bullish accumulation could not stand the test of time as price closed above the newly established resistance, resulting to a loss. This is why trading on lower time frames results in a few losing trades as sudden volatility may trigger exit points. 

As shown above, the pair now initiates regular bullish divergence on 14 January ’19 and 21 January ’19. A failure of the current bullish accumulation on 22 Jan ’19 will trigger a continuation of the short sells.

Conclusion and Projection

Going forward, we expect further price decline of the BTCUSD and a target zone around 2458.97 and 1826.2. Shopping for a bitcoin broker, such as IQ Option Singapore? Visit the broker section of our website for a list of hand vetted brokers to execute your trades.
