Is Crypto Finally Moving Higher?

Greg Schnell | September 09, 2022 at 01:40 PM

Crypto has been Kryponite for investors since November 2021. The holders (HODL – Hold On for Dear Life) have been hammered. Recently crypto has started to behave better including going sideways while the stock market pulled back in late August.

The daily version has a yellow background, the weekly has a graphite background.

Bitcoin is the most common chart. On Friday the chart fired off like a rocket heading higher, breaking the smooth downtrend it was building.

A few bullish things I see on the chart.

  • The relative strength to the $SPX (RS) is breaking the downtrend.
  • On a wider scale, this is also a double bottom location with the June/July lows.
  • The PPO is making a significantly higher low than the June low.

Going to the weekly chart, Bitcoin has a few things I like to see as well but they haven’t flipped a signal yet.

  • The Purple RS is close to breaking the downtrend
  • The full stochastic looks like a higher low and is trying to move above the 20% line and the signal line.
  • The PPO shows the momentum hitting a high in February 2021. Can it break out of the PPO downtrend?

Ethereum has a few of the same clues forming.

  • The RS has been trending higher since July.
  • Price broke the downtrend a week ago
  • Price is making a much higher low whereas Bitcoin was making a double bottom.
  • Price has a series of higher lows
  • The PPO has a much higher low than the June low and is almost in positive territory.

The Ethereum Weekly chart is also improving.

  • The RS line is breaking out!
  • The full stochastic is restarting a move above 50% which is very bullish on a weekly chart.
  • Price is making a 3-week high
  • The 10-week moving average is looking like support here.
  • The PPO downtrend is close to breaking
  • The PPO is already on a buy signal!

If we are looking for a turning point, these charts look to be ready. It’s been a tough drop off the highs, but the opportunity might be here for the next wave higher.

I’ll be hosting a presentation on September 20th at 1 PM ET. The purpose of the presentation is to explain more about the Osprey Strategies approach to the market. Follow this link to register – Osprey Strategies

SetYourStop Workspace

The main focus of the SetYourStop Slack workspace is the momentum scanner that was developed to trace abnormal volatility in the Canadian equity market.

Our proprietary momentum scan system searches for abnormal volatility which flags the urgency of buyers. It was designed to signal the potential of momentum coming into an underlying name or sector. The charts issued are to be used as indicators only, not a trigger to buy or sell. Disclaimer

Once a chart is received, systematic rules are to be used, implemented by the individual (SetYourStop nor holds No Responsibility for one’s actions as the charts given on SetYourStop and are to be used as indicators only and not a trigger to buy or sell) to define and manage risk. Stop-loss orders are an important tool to negate any false signal. The goal is to let winners run while using trailing stop-loss orders to preserve gains.
