BTC → Bitcoin Back to $38,000? Or to $138,000? Let’s Answer.

Bitcoin has deviated from its historical price action tendencies and reached new all-time highs before the bitcoin halving and without touching lifetime support! Does that mean we will continue to go up?


How do we trade this? 🤔

BTC → Bitcoin Back to $38,000? Or to $138,000? Let's Answer.

Bitcoin is clearly at a crucial moment in the market, breaking beyond the previous $69,500 all-time high and reaching just shy of $74,000. Without surprise, Bitcoin is facing some resistance in this area as the bulls take some profits and the bears lurk waiting for a solid sell candle.

At this stage, we do not have a sell candle to justify a short. My previous analysis called for a 30% pullback or more between the $45,000 and $55,000 area if the proper sell candle and confirmation bars showed themselves, we never received those candles. I am still in the same mindset; be on the lookout for a major pullback, but wait for the proper sell and confirmation to short. Long scalp on the smaller timeframes, 5m or 15m until the price action no longer justifies it.

I believe the more lucrative opportunity will show itself after a major pullback occurs to the $38,000 price area. This area provided great trade volume and has acted as support and resistance several times in the past few years. It's reasonable to believe this will be a solid floor for Bitcoin. The hard lifetime support floor is approximately $25,000 leading into 2025, but I think it's unlikely at this point to see such a pullback. $38,000 is the more likely support level as that should coincide with the Weekly 200EMA later this year/early next year if the price is to fall that far. We also have to consider that the price may not fall below the Weekly 30EMA or come near the Weekly 200EMA and should be looking for a buy signal at any of these support zones.

For now, I would long trade the smaller timeframes and be on the lookout for the sell signal candle on the weekly chart.


💡 Trade Idea 💡

Long Entry: $42,000
🟥 Stop Loss: $25,000
✅ Take Profit #1: $69,000
✅ Take Profit #2: $110,000
⚖️ Risk/Reward Ratio: 1:4


🔑 Key Takeaways 🔑

1. At previous all-time high resistance, not ideal long entry on Daily or Weekly timeframe.
2. Wait for sell signal on Daily or Weekly timeframes to enter a short.
3. Target Weekly 30EMA, 200EMA, and previous high volume area for support.
4. Long at $42,000 after a strong buy signal off of the high volume area, target 1:4 Risk/Reward and take half of the position off the table at $69,000, move stop loss up to entry and swing the latter half of the position to the $110,000 area.
5. RSI is overbought near 85.00 which supports a pullback and hesitation to long.


💰 Trading Tip 💰
It's reasonable to take half profits at the first resistance target in a long trade, or the first support target in a short trade. Using a 1:1 Risk/Reward Ratio for your first target, you can move your stop loss up to your entry price, locking in profits. This allows you to watch the rest of the trade execute without worry of losing money. This helps improve trading psychology and the equity in your account.
