Fractal

Fractals are not only abundant in nature, they are also the building blocks of trends. They are simple yet important, repetitive formations, self-similar across different time frames and used by traders to identify or conform a trend (markets trend about 30% of the time) in order to trade it profitably. When broken apart, they exhibit the same characteristics as greater patterns or price movements. Fractals lag the market, because it takes time for them to form. They can include any number of bars, though the minimum is 5.

Fractals form the swing points of the market (creating fractal levels) and bearish fractals and bullish fractals are distinct. There are several trading strategies based on them, each with their own set of rules for entry and exit. Some traders use them to draw trend lines. Bill Williams uses fractals in his trading system and developed an indicator to identify them. Whether they are used alone or in combination with other techniques such as Fibonacci levels, Support & Resistance, or other indicators, fractals can be useful tools in a technical trader's toolbox.

I don't think it makes sense to use normal TA on Bitcoin because it cannot be compared to any asset... except itself, so I've overlayed the early 2013 bubble (daily candles) on the current run (weekly). We'll peak on CME futures and then an exchange CEO will get kidnapped or something. I don't know. Nobody does. Good luck. Still long as of my last linked trade:

Price retracement based on the same 25% drop observed March 21st. I expect prices to fall in a similar pattern over 10-14 days bottoming out around $6,600 early May.

Falling wedge Breakout Fractal + Fib support

Howdy, Having picked up on a the large previous descending wedge I have taken the price action after breakout from last wedge and multiplied it by a degree of 0.372 as this was roughly how much smaller the current wedge is. just testing things out really. Have overlayed the new price action onto current Wedge breakout and have taken a look at the Fib numbers ...

Would have liked to have seen the market rise faster from the current low to the MA, and then it hit my 15 min Bollinger trend line and went down again (note that all my Bollinger trend lines come from either the 15 min 2 hour or 4 hour charts). Somebody will say it wasn't my 15 min Bollinger trend line but an obvious retracement level. Fine OK you win. The next ...

I'm going short because lower Bollinger line was broken through and looking back at last years climb this looks like it was a really bad sign. Cancelling all my what to watch lists and observation and going with the usual stuff head and shoulder formations for now. If price breaks through MA I'll review.

My earlier postings worked. $10,200 was a key low. We got the MACD trough. We got the Williams down arrow. All we need now is a good break through the MA. Back test for yourselves what happens after that. Key support now $10,200. If gets busted then another leg down. Market may have risen to fast and MA been too high for any good support.

Low reached of $10,200 looks promising as last trough (in red) on the MACD looks like a trough this time but MA may have needed to have been a bit more within reach. No Williams down arrow as yet. This is an update on my previous What to watch posting.

I'm looking for a close on 2 hour bar to hold above $10,574 on lower Bollinger line and Williams arrow down to give support. There're a number of previous scenarios that could play out back up through MA or down to close above $10,308.

Unusual Bollinger band formation cited. Price could take its time to reach $12,130 or be quick and sudden. Could then be timeframe for hedge end wave one. Will be watching pattern in Williams arrows for top and for price support as well as MA, MACD, and lower Bollinger band.

Well it broke through my $11,600 target but yet to smash it. Would be looking to break $12,130 after that. May go down towards MA before trying again. Not expecting the next Williams arrow to be down, and especially not making a lower low than the last arrow down. That would be a surprise.

I've added Williams Fractal to my charts. Question - do we need another Williams arrow down before the next up leg? MACD looking good to go.

I can not say exactly when this will happen, maybe the price will fall right away, but maybe first it will reach $ 19,000 / In general, we look and wait, it's better to place limit orders or wait for the impulse to go down.
