The Bitcoin price from the point of view of a 4hour chart shows a bearish accumulation pattern, which later collapsed to a bullish breakout on February 16. Prior to the breakout of bearish accumulation, a bullish fakey was fired in combination with bullish pressure on 14 February showing a rejection of sellers. With a 0.7% risk, price from that point rallied by 3.36%.
BTC/USD: 2-HR Chart
Approaching the BTCUSD from a 2hour chart, we notice that the bullish trend that had climbed about 9.1% from a bullish hidden divergence in combination with a failure of bearish pressure on 17 February ’19 20:00, is starting to show reversal via an opposite bearish regular divergence on 19 February ’19 16:00. This pattern is valid because it is accompanied by a bearish accumulation on the same date.
Conclusion and Projection
Despite a midterm bullish trend on the lower time frames of the BTCUSD, we still maintain a long term bearish bias on the pair as the critical resistance level of 4384.0 from the double bearish accumulation from December ’18 to January ’19 is not yet touched let alone breached. The pair is projected to reach the MA-65 which is currently about 2516.0 as shown below.
