Bitcoin (BTC) Price Analysis: Will This Wedge Support Hold?

Bitcoin has formed lower highs and slightly lower lows to create a falling wedge formation on its 4-hour time frame. Support is holding for now but it looks like bears are trying to go for a break lower.

The 100 SMA is below the longer-term 200 SMA to confirm that the path of least resistance is to the downside. In other words, the selloff is more likely to resume than to reverse. Also, the gap between the moving averages is widening to reflect stronger selling pressure. Price is below both moving averages to signal the presence of selling pressure also.

RSI already dipped to the oversold region to signal exhaustion among sellers and appears to be pulling back up to indicate that buyers might return. In that case, bitcoin could still bounce off support and test the top of the wedge at the $3,800 area again. This lines up with the 200 SMA dynamic inflection point to add to its strength as a ceiling.

Stochastic has just reached the oversold region to reflect slower selling pressure and might also be due to turn higher soon. A shallow bullish divergence can be seen as price made lower lows while the oscillator had slightly higher lows since mid-January.

Still, a break below support could spur a slide that’s the same size as the wedge formation. This spans $3,600 to around $4,400 so the resulting downtrend could last by at least $800. Similarly a break above the wedge top could spur a rally of the same height.

Bitcoin has had a rough couple of weeks as traders appeared to turn their optimism down a notch. As it is, the industry has yet to report positive developments that could sustain the rallies from the start of the year, but the lack of bullish interest despite upside breakouts suggests caution.

Anaplan (PLAN) estimated to achieve EPS growth of -18.30% for this year

Anaplan (PLAN) projected to achieve earnings per share (EPS) growth of -18.30% for this year while EPS growth expected to touch 13.40% for next …

Anaplan (PLAN)’s EPS growth Analysis:

Valuation-related measures are often lousy instruments for timing the market. But that doesn’t mean they can’t hold interesting information about equity market returns. In the long run equity markets that exhibit stronger EPS growth tend to outperform. This relationship increases the importance of accurate EPS growth estimates for different markets. EPS growth percentage represents the annualized rate of net-income-per-share growth over the trailing one-year period for the stocks held by a stock. Earnings-per-share growth gives a good picture of the rate at which a company has grown its profitability per unit of equity.

All things being equal, stocks with higher earnings-per-share growth rates are generally more desirable than those with slower earnings-per-share growth rates. One of the important differences between earnings-per-share growth rates and net-income growth rates is that the former reflects the dilution that occurs from new stock issuance, the exercise of employee stock options, warrants, convertible securities, and share repurchases.

Analysis of Simple Moving Average:

The Simple Moving Average is arguably the most popular technical analysis tool used by traders. The Simple Moving Average (SMA) is often used to identify trend direction, but can be used to generate potential buy and sell signals.

When price is in an uptrend and subsequently, the moving average is in an uptrend, and the moving average has been tested by price and price has bounced off the moving average a few times (i.e. the moving average is serving as a support line), then a trader might buy on the next pullbacks back to the Simple Moving Average.

At times when price is in a downtrend and the moving average is in a downtrend as well, and price tests the SMA above and is rejected a few consecutive times (i.e. the moving average is serving as a resistance line), then a trader might sell on the next rally up to the Simple Moving Average.

Volume is an important technical analysis tool to learn and understand how to apply to price movements. Volume increases every time a buyer and seller transact their stock or futures contract. If a buyer buys one share of stock from a seller, then that one share is added to the total volume of that particular stock. Volume has two major premises:

When prices rise or fall, an increase in volume acts as confirmation that the rise or fall in price is real and that the price movement had strength. When prices rise or fall and there is a decrease in volume, then this might be interpreted as being a weak price move, because the price move had very little strength and interest from traders.

Keep Eyes On RSI Indicator:

The stock’s RSI amounts to 62.2. Wilder believed that when prices rose very rapidly and therefore momentum was high enough, that the underlying financial instrument/commodity would have to eventually be considered overbought and a selling opportunity was possibly at hand. Likewise, when prices dropped rapidly and therefore momentum was low enough, the financial instrument would at some point be considered oversold presenting a possible buying opportunity.

There are set number ranges within RSI that Wilder consider useful and noteworthy in this regard. According to Wilder, any number above 70 should be considered overbought and any number below 30 should be considered oversold. An RSI between 30 and 70 was to be considered neutral and an RSI around 50 signified no trend. – Some traders believe that Wilder’s overbought/oversold ranges are too wide and choose to alter those ranges. For example, someone might consider any number above 80 as overbought and anything below 20 as undersold. This is entirely at the trader’s discretion.
