Three Weeks Ahead of Bitcoin’s Terrifying Selloff

bitcoin elliott wave forecast

It was September 1st, when the price of Bitcoin was hovering around the $5000 mark. Today is September 15th and the markets once again proved that for the cryptocurrency, two weeks is a very long time. BTCUSD just fell to $3051 on BITSTAMP and even lower on some of the other exchanges, erasing roughly 40% of the market capitalization of the biggest virtual currency.

Fortunately, this selloff did not come out of the blue. Back in August, while Bitcoin was slightly below $4400, we published “BTCUSD Ready for Another Terrifying Pullback”, where we applied the Elliott Wave Principle to the 4-hour chart of the pair and came up with the following prediction.

As visible, the impulsive structure of the recovery from $1830 suggested BTCUSD was supposed to approach $5000. On the other hand, the theory states that every impulse is followed by a three-wave correction in the opposite direction. That is why, instead of joining the bulls above $4500, we were getting ready for a “terrifying pullback”, which had the potential to “revisit the support zone near $3000 per coin.” The updated chart below shows Bitcoin’s price as it is today.

Picking tops is never a good idea, so we did not even try shorting Bitcoin near $5000. However, we are still glad Ralph Nelson Elliott discovered the Wave principle in the 1930s, because in 2017, his discovery saved us a lot of money by simply warning us that a bearish reversal was just around the corner. All it took was a price chart and the ability to interpret its message correctly.

New to Elliott Wave?

Elliott Wave principle offers a completely new understanding of what the nature of the markets is, what drives them and what can be derived from their movement. This course is for those of you, who have been looking for an honest Elliott Wave guide, describing the method’s advantages over other trading tools, but not hiding its weaknesses.
