While the broad stock market has been pulling back over the past two weeks – giving up just about all of the early 2020 gains – the price of Bitcoin has been slowly sneaking higher.
Two weeks ago, we noted how the chart of Bitcoin was turning bullish. The King of Cryptocurrencies had just popped above its 50-day bullish cross.
Bitcoin was trading just above $8,000 back then. Yesterday it closed above $9,400. That’s a 17.5% gain in just two weeks. And, this bullish move is only just getting started.
You see, Bitcoin could rally up to last July’s high of $13,000 per coin sometime over the next three months.
Let me show you how it gets there. Take a look at this chart…
Bitcoin has spent the past few months in a trading range between $6,500 and $9,500. It closed yesterday at the upper part of that range. So, a short-term pullback from here seems likely.
If that pullback can form a higher low – which would be symmetrical with the low from last October – then the chart will develop an “inverse head-and-shoulders” pattern. This is a bullish pattern that signals the end of a downtrend and the beginning of a new uptrend.
The distance between the head of the pattern (H) and the “neckline” (the resistance line at $9,500) is $3,000. That tells us the potential of any rally that can break out above the neckline. So, just add $3,000 to the $9,500 neckline and we get an upside target of $12,500.
That target lines up really well with the resistance line that marked the high last year at $13,000.
Of course, there are a lot of conditions that have to be met in order for this scenario to play out. But, Bitcoin’s steady move higher over the past two weeks has turned the technical picture from bearish to bullish. And, it looks to me like this move is just getting started.
Traders might consider adding some exposure to Bitcoin on any weakness in the days ahead.
Best regards and good trading,

Hi Jeff, thanks for all you do. I’ve learned so much and now am pulling some small profits, so I appreciate you and your efforts. By the way, do you bro. We are ok with some ups and downs, no worries.
I confess. I tried a different options service. WOW. What a mistake. Jeff explains his moves and keeps us educated about the position. His analysis is solid and not shoddy like other providers. Bottom line, Jeff is the best trader/teacher without a doubt.
Thank you, as always, for your thoughtful comments. We look forward to reading them every day. Keep them coming at [email protected].
