BTC/USD forms descending triangle on Goldman Sachs woes, FxWirePro’s red flags with shooting star & hanging man, history repeats with engulfing
There have been series of adverse news that’s been lingering around cryptocurrency space. Some unpleasant news has come in from Goldman Sachs last week, as a result, bitcoin prices slid to three-week’s low as Goldman Sachs Group Inc. is pulling back to defer crypto projects to set up a trading desk.
On the other hand, the US SEC has issued the order of suspension for the two XBT Provider products, namely, Bitcoin Tracker One and Ether Tracker One exchange-traded notes, issued by XBT Provider AB, a Swedish-based subsidiary of the U.K. firm CoinShares Holdings which were highly flaunted investment avenues that pursued to attract attention from the U.S. public markets investors.
But technically, we had raised red flags for aggressive bulls in our recent posts.
Consequently, BTCUSD forms descending triangle pattern on daily terms. Although the bulls of this pair have resumed back today from the lows of $6,119.50 levels, bearish sentiments are still imminent especially after the formation of shooting star and hanging man patterns at descending triangle resistance (at $7,242.40 and $7,300 levels).
You could notice that this pair shown a considerable bearish potential as and when the formation of above-stated candlestick patterns in the past. Thereby, history has repeated this time as well since the current prices are slid below DMAs.
However, the minor bullish potential for the day cannot be ruled out. Since it costs about $6,000 to mine a bitcoin and it couldn’t exceed anything lower than that. But the real cause of concern for the short-term traders is that both momentum oscillators (RSI & stochastic curves) signal overbought pressures. We could foresee more dips on the cards in the days to come upon bearish DMA and MACD crossovers.
On an intermediate trend perspective, the pair has tested the strong support several times in the recent past at 78.6% fibonacci levels from the peaks of last december’2017 (i.e. 5701 levels) but for now, failure swings are observed at 21EMAs, the major trend wedged between 5700 - 11700 levels.
