Bitcoin rose out of the wedge it had been consolidating in over the past month. It’s now hitting resistance at $3,900.

Just prior to the decisive break out, market makers ran a stop hunt that pushed price up to $3,905 and back down to $3,775 before returning to baseline. This happened in under 30 mins.

As price has been on a slow uptick, shorts have been stacking.

Looking at the daily chart, we can see the Bollinger bands are starting to bottleneck.

In today’s analysis I discuss, key areas to watch, traps to avoid and so much more. I hope you find it helpful.

    Nice trade on BTC. You never can blow up an account by taking profit. Folks get upset when they miss a top, but end up waiting until it becomes a bottom. Great example of a plan for profit, taking it and preparing for the next opportunity.
    How do you choose to short BTC?

      Thanks TIMM. The plan was to go long at $3,800 targeting $4,000, but taking investment off the board at $3,900. Then short between $4,000 and $4,100. I explained in the prior 2-3 videos my logic for this. Shorts were stacking as longs were slowly dropping this past week. Strong volume and support at $3,800, coupled with the tightening price range helped my thought process but really too much to explain here…but you’ll find it in the prior videos if you can stand my voice for that long. lol

        Thanks Workin. For shorting, I didn’t ask it well. The question was more about what vehicle, instrument or site you use. Do you use puts or do you have another way to go about shorting?

    Sound analysis on the current state of play for BTC @workin2005. Agree with your caution re choppy market conditions. I’m sitting on a long position I entered on the last dip to 3.8…moved stop to break even and looking for a pop to 4.05..loe probability trade but since break-even I’m going to let it run….Daily closed strong.

      Shorts stacking isn’t at all bad. It just messes with my plan to short at $4,100 I had been referring to. 😉
      If price hits that zone and shorts are still stacking with heavy volume, the lip could be blown off.
