Multiple Reasons for Shorting Bitcoin | Bitcoin Price Analysis | May 14

It hurts to say this, but I'm shorting bitcoin

I'm always torn between technical analysis and fundamental analyis. On the one side I believe in bitcoin and buy it every time it dips with no intention to sell, on the other hand I love technical analysis and a little extra income on the side doesn't hurt. So that means that I make long term buys but also look for intraday longing and shorting opportunities (secretly hoping that my shorts fail haha).

In any case, below is today's analysis for which I found many reasons to short. We are currently still at my entry price for this trade so I have yet to see if it will be successful or not. So, let's find out!

Reasons For Going Short

  • Horizontal resistance with several touches
  • Multiple instances of 3 minute bearish divergences
  • Found an entry point with a risk to reward ratio of 2 to 1
  • 0.618 Fib retracement level
  • Ascending wedge pattern
