Forecast Analysis 4.12.24 From The CryptoUnderground

By TheDarkSage | The Crypto Underground | 12 Apr 2024

What's the good word, traders?

As you'll no doubt have noticed by now, we've been stuck in a rather tedious, anemic downtrending channel for a while now. Each time we try punching a leg higher, those resistant sellers just keep battering us back into the muddy confines of this compressed range.

But there could be a glimmer of an energy shift on the horizon here if we stay focused. See, we've got this make-or-break consolidation line stacked up just above the 50% Fibonacci retracement level around $67K on Bitcoin. Slice through there with some gusto and we could finally spark a respectable relief rally.

Now to be clear, I'm not making some wildly bullish forecast here. But if we've learned anything from past cycles, it's that crypto never likes to deal in straight lines for too long. These tedious consolidation periods where both sides bleed eventually reach a fever pitch ripe for reversals. The question is, which way does the pendulum swing when it snaps?

If our first notable bounce off that $67K area gets sold into again, then we're likely hardening up for a visit to the second major consolidation line sitting at the $70K level. That's a much older brewing support region from the end of March. And that level still carries a certain gravitational pull in this market.

Either way, things are getting wound pretty tight within these bounds. And when things get too tightly wound around here, they eventually snap in one volatile direction or another. My magic 8-ball is still a little murky on the trajectory. But if I had to haze a guess, I'd say we're staring at binary outcomes - either a whipsaw higher to retest if not punch through the resistance before $75K in the coming days...or a more extended pullback into the 65K or even lower to 60K before any legit upside momentum can be reattempted heading into the halving.

This is precisely why I always preach trading these conditions with a deft hand and solid risk discipline. Trying to firmly plant your bullish or bearish flag into these tightly coiled ranges is a great way to get your face ripped off. Stay humble, stay nimble, and roll with the punches until we get that definitive breakout makeup in either direction.

Because once we get that trigger pull, all bets are off on how rapidly things can run. Whether mooning straight into the halving like everyone's been fantasizing about...or selling off toward a CCY-style dip cycle first. Make sure your mental game and risk parameters are primed to adapt to either scenario presenting itself over these next couple of weeks. Rip currents only get stronger the closer we sail to that rapidly approaching inflection point.

Buckle up and stay strapped, my fellow Degen-Raiders. We're about to find out whether the halving narrative goes boom or bust in spectacular fashion. Bring your appetite for swinging volatility because it's gonna happen one way or another.
