Bitcoin and Litecoin – Sell The (Dead Cat) Bounce?


Sell The Dead Cat Bounce? 

In this update, I want to share my view on Bitcoin and Litecoin, and why I believe the next rally should be sold. In my latest update, I warned for a possible topping out of Bitcoin due to the vertical move up, see here.

Today, I want to share where we are now and what to expect for the next couple of days/weeks.

Let’s start with Litecoin vs Bitcoin.



The most trusted hardware wallet in the world

Ledger Nano S - The secure hardware wallet



Litecoin vs Bitcoin (left) and LTC Chart 15min

The ratio LTC:BTC broke out above resistance, indicating LTC outperforms BTC. Trending above green support and in an uptrend, signals LTC might keep outperforming BTC in the short term, so I added a small part of my BTC into LTC.

The right side of the chart shows LTC 15 min chart, currently trading at $270, breaking out above resistance. Next resistance area 294-300. Target area if LTC breaks above 294/300 –> 320 –> 340/350.

A break of LTC below support $220 and I’m out for the short term.




Bitcoin vs Silver Parabolic Pattern

The left side of the chart is the weekly chart of Silver during 2006-2012, and the right side is Bitcoin, since the start of 2017. So far, the patterns play out almost identical.

Number 10 was the $11k low, BTC bounced up,, sold off and formed a higher low.

Now, if the pattern keeps aligning, then we could expect a run up into nr. 11: $16-$18k area. That seems like a nice opportunity to look for sell opportunities as the downside target for nr. 12 is at $10k  = a 47% potential drop.

Longer term, as in after nr. 14, I will overweight cryptos again, to a max of 25% of assets. For now, I feel comfortable with a reduced crypto exposure (5% of total assets).

Short term, based on this pattern, I expect a Lower High for nr. 11, a dead cat bounce?
