Weekly Range Update


Daily Chart @bitstamp

XBT/USD weekly range $ 550-$ 615 | ALMA daily moving average is still slightly bearish and the main resistance is unchanged at VWAP around $ 615.

I think the cross XBTUSD will remain below $ 615 this week with a second resistance at about $ 680. The weekly forecast is slighlt bearish but i don’t expect a break below $550 because of low volatility.

In case of a volatility spike due to another price crash the deal is to buy slightly above $420.

XBT/USD weekly range $ 550-$ 620 | ALMA daily moving average is slightly bearish and the main resistance for now is always the VWAP at $ 620.

I think the cross XBTUSD will remain below $ 620 this week with a second resistance at about $ 690. Volatility has stabilized. The weekly forecast is flat, i don’t expect a break above $620 or below $550.

The average of the RSI  oscillator turned upward and is giving some bullish indications but only a breakout above $ 620 would confirm a bullish scenario.

Weekly Range Update

XBTUSD @bitstamp

XBT / USD weekly range $ 495- $ 640 | ALMA daily moving average is still bearish and the main resistance is the VWAP which adjusted to about $ 640 after the flash crash caused by Bitfinex.

I think the cross XBTUSD will remain below $ 640 this week with a second resistance at about $ 715. Volatility after the peak of last week is now stabilizing. The weekly forecast remains bearish, I think we will continue to see the bitcoin below the VWAP to $ 640. The actual price rebound could already be exhausted, if so then i expect a retest of the $565 price level.

The average of RSI oscillator is turning upward but has not yet given a bullish signal, it is at 26 and below the threshold of 30 that identifies the oversold zone.

Because of bitfinex exchange going offline i’m moving back to using bitstamp data.

Offtopic: Cacoethes scribendi

“Cacoethes scribendi” or translated from Latin to english “a burning desire to write”, writing always of bitcoin sometimes is boring, today i show you the template i use with metatrader 4 applied to other assets like stocks, indexes and altcoin.

I already explained that an idea that i like is to do a price regression of our asset using a filter that eliminates all cycles below 30-40 periods with the intent to extract the underlying long term trend, then you can try to earn some money trading the secondary cycles that move the price up and down inside the price channel.

SP500/N100 weekly chart


Mid channel line color is white thus this market is neutral the ideal situation to trade the price levels, at the moment there could be a short opportunity, stoploss above the dotted positive deviation line.


Similar situation for the nasdaq 100 index.



The big drop of the Brexit is clearly visible, the pound should stay above 1.29, it’s the moment to buy with a stoploss below 1.28

Nikkei 225


Nikkei is short for Japan’s Nikkei 225 Stock Average, it is a price-weighted index comprised of Japan’s top 225 blue-chip companies traded on the Tokyo Stock Exchange. The Nikkei is equivalent to the Dow Jones Industrial Average Index in the United States.
In this mothky chart is visibile the big rise fueled by the quantitative easing of the Japan Central Bank and the subsequent drop after flirting with the resistance at 21000.
At the moment it is holding above the first negative deviation line, i don’t see any trading opportunity.



On the weekly chart the tendency is neutral, midline color is white, ideal to trade secondary cycles like the one that pushed down Tesla below 150 usd and below our support, a very good trading opportunity, it is possible also to trade the dotted levels but they are less safe.



Daily chart of ferrari (RACE ticker), after an interesting double bottom on the support this stock trended higher above the resistance after the earnings.
I think we are seeing a buying climax and in this situations is smart to sell the good news, i see a short trade opportunity here but it’s wise to wait some weak signals from this stock before going on.

Nintendo and the Pokemon Go Bubble


No comment here, the bubble is evident but this stock is still hovering above midline and the long term trend is bullish. Again a nice double bottom at the support.



Last five years of Apple in this monthly chart, here the support levels worked almost perfectly. Apple is losing some steam as the midline color is white, neutral long term tendency despite you can see a sequence of higher highs and lows. The stock reacted from the dotted line at around 90 usd but i’m not sure is going up yet, the trading opportunity here is a test at 75-80 usd this year or the next one.

ETCUSD – Hourly chart


Hourly chart of ethereum classic, again bubbles are clearly visible. Some congestion outside the upper solid deviation line it’s the warning signal, be prepared to open a short. Now volatility is a bit lower and this altcoin is moving inside the dotted deviation lines. I see a buying opportunity once 1.85 usd is tested.


This price channel indicator is an improvement of the classic bollinger bands indicator, what i don’t like of the bollinger bands is the wrong way to compute the upper and lower bands that might lead to very misleading values sometimes as i explained at the end of this old article. To keep things simple i omitted to include some timing indicators, for example adding the Walter Bressert DSS oscillator with ethereum classic we have:


Clean cycles togheter with a correct approach to spot support/resistance levels and you have a decent guide to follow. This oscillator is configured using 9 periods and 5 periods for a second pass smoothing.



Long Term Update

This is a template i use with metatrader 4 where you can see a price regression channel. Yellow line is the same average i use on sierrachart, ALMA moving average.

Weekly Chart since October 2013

The dotted deviation lines are calculated using the volatility derived from the average true range indicator. The solid deviation lines are calculated with the same approach but using two times the value of the average true range. Most of the time XBTUSD stays inside the dotted deviation lines but during period of high volatility it moves towards the solid deviation lines as happened in the last Top of June at $780.

With the bitfinex flash crash XBTUSD tested the first lower deviation line at $475 although on some exchanges the bottom touched $460. I don’t think is over yet, there might be a secondary reaction that can last all this month and maybe part of September with a test of the lower deviation line, this price level is near $400 as indicated in the chart.

The color of the mid-channel line represents the strength of the trend, red if bearish, white for neutral and green if bullish, at the moment the main trend is bullish and it’ll not change if XBTUSD doesn’t move below $400 for a prolonged period of time. I’m not going to liquidate my position as soon XBTUSD stays inside this long term bullish price channel.

XBTUSD daily Chart with support resistance levels
XBTUSD daily Chart with support resistance levels

XBT / USD weekly range $605-$ 660 | ALMA daily moving average is bearish and the main resistance is the VWAP at about $ 660, first support at $605.

XBTUSD broke previous week support and is now in a weak position under $ 660 US dollars. The resistance zone is $ 660-710, I think that XBTUSD will remain below $ 660 this week with a second resistance at about $ 710. The volatility finally increased with a drop in the last weekend.

The weekly forecast remains bearish, I think we will continue to see the bitcoin below the VWAP at $ 660.

The only positive note is the RSI oscillator that entered in oversold territory after a while and could allow a bitcoin rebound in the next few days, rebound which should end at the VWAP ($ 660).

Weekly Range Update

XBTUSD daily chart

XBT / USD weekly range $ 640- $ 710 | ALMA daily moving average is slightly bearish and the main support is the VWAP at about $ 640. XBTUSD remains in bullish position always above the VWAP since June 24, last week it tested $640 and reacted from there but generally speaking we are in a flat congestion between 630 and 680 dollars, for short-term traders i recommend to trade this price range accordingly (between the two extreme of 570 and 780 US dollars).

The resistance zone is $ 710-780, I think that XBTUSD will remain above $ 640 again this week with a first resistance at around $ 680. The volatility continues to be very low and this will have to be solved sooner or later with a breakout above or below the price range defined by the deviation of the VWAP lines indicated in the graph. The weekly forecast remains unchanged, I think we will continue to see the bitcoin confined in this price range, between 640 and 710 US dollars.

The RSI oscillator remains in a neutral position around 50 although is slowly orienting for an upward movement.

XBT / USD weekly range $ 635- $ 710 | ALMA daily moving average rose upward and the main support is the VWAP at about $ 635. XBTUSD resists above the VWAP for almost a month. The resistance price zone is $ 710-800, I think that XBTUSD will remain above $ 635 also this week with a first support at around $ 670, which corresponds to the ALMA moving average I use. It remains to be seen if market participants will manage to push the bitcoin price over the resistance at $ 710, the volatility after a period of contraction increased again and it did it by pushing up prices rather than downward, a positive note that leaves some hope for a break above $ 710.

The RSI oscillator remains in neutral position around 50, yet there seems to be a trend strong enough to move above $ 710, at least this week.

Daily Chart @bitfinex exchange

XBT / USD weekly range $ 625-$ 710 | ALMA daily moving average is slightly bearish and the main support is always the VWAP at about $ 625. XBTUSD resists above the VWAP and several times the price has attempted to move below it without particular success, this support level (@625$) has been broken in some cases slightly and then quickly recovered. The resistance zone is $710-$800, I think that XBTUSD will remain above the $625 this week, otherwise I see the area $540- $ 580 as a very important one. $580 is the mid-level between VWAP and -1 dev.line at $540.

The oscillator RSI after having touched the oversold area has rebounded and now is in the neutral zone around 50. The halving of block from 25 to 12.5 bitcoins for now has not led to an increase in volatility.
