Bitcoin Price Watch; Back to Breakout!

Bitcoin Price Watch; Back to Breakout!

Here's what we are looking at for today's morning session - a return to breakout from yesterday evening's scalps. Yesterday afternoon, in the second of our twice daily bitcoin price watch pieces, we mixed things up a little bit. At time of writing we remained well within the range we had pre-slated as the one to watch for the morning session, and this gave us two choices. One, remain with that framework only (which, of course, wouldn’t have made for a particularly interesting evening’s worth of trading, or a particularly interesting analysis, for that matter); or bring a scalp strategy to....

Bitcoin Price Watch: Breakout On!

It is becoming increasingly difficult to draw a profit from the market. What has been a faithful strategy for the past six months or so, our traditional breakout strategy, is failing to offer many valid entry signals on the back of the consolidatory action we have seen in the bitcoin price over the last week. We have ranged tightly mid range, not even touching our key levels. Not only has this left us unable to implement a breakout position, but it has also made it difficult to effectively bring our intrarange strategy into play - as this requires us to correct from a key level to enter,....

Bitcoin Price Watch; Back to Breakout

We are returning to our breakout strategy for our intraday bitcoin price trading efforts today. Here's what you need to know. Last night, we set up a little bit differently for the second of our twice daily analyses. Rather than outline standard support and resistance, we looked at an upward sloping triangle that offered us the opportunity to get into the markets on a scalp trade position, and use that to draw a sharp, decent downside profit. Action is now matured overnight, and our scope trade worked out just as we had hoped. Price broke shortly after we published our strategy, and....

Bitcoin Price Breakout: Here's What To Watch

Yesterday afternoon, we published our twice-daily bitcoin price watch piece. In the piece, we highlighted the levels that we would be looking at around evening during the Asian session, and suggested that - as a result of the widening of our regular parameters - we could probably get in and out of the markets according to our intra-range strategy. Action has now matured overnight, and - as we head into a fresh European session - what of levels that we are keeping an eye on in the bitcoin price today, and how can we try and draw profit from the market on the back of these parameters? Take a....

Bitcoin Price Watch; Breakout Strategy in Play!

Here's what we are watching in this evening's bitcoin price. Both the intrarange and breakout strategies are available for use. In this morning’s analysis, we noted that a downward sloping channel offered up the potential for an upside break, and in turn, some strength in the bitcoin price throughout the Wednesday European session. It’s been about seven hours since we released our interpretation of last night’s action, and things haven’t exactly played out as expected. We got a downside break that put us in a medium term short trade, but a quick reversal leaves us currently just shy of an....

Bitcoin Price Watch; Live Breakout Trade!

Here's what we're focusing on for the Thursday afternoon session out of Europe in the bitcoin price. In this morning’s bitcoin price watch article, we highlighted the range we were focusing on for the early European session. It was a pretty tight range, so we said we’d be looking at trading breakout only, as opposed to breakout and intrarange. This is because its difficult apply effective risk management parameters on intrarange trades when support and resistance are so narrow. As it turned out, we might have been better off giving it ago. Shortly before the European afternoon kicked off,....
