The WYCKOFF CRYPTO REPORT provides regular updates on the most popular digital assets based on the Wyckoff Methodology. Our market outlook follows the principles of Supply and Demand and Market Participants Analysis as they are taught and practiced in the WTC/WTPC/WMD classes.
We are approaching the upper half of the capitulation bar  where margin calls forced institutions to sell Bitcoin. The resistance level highlighted in yellow is a key area. This week’s upbar is marked by diminished spread and volume, suggesting that the current upmove is losing momentum. The test of the $7000 area will provide us crucial information about the availability of supply. The price action of Bitcoin is now highly correlated to the S&P. A retest of the lows in the next week could easily bring Bitcoin back to the $5600 area.
High probability scenario [SHORT]: If price fails to commit above the $7000, we are likely going to revisit the $5300-$5600 area. A short position could be opened on the break of the low of bar .
Low probability scenario [LONG]: Bitcoin accepts higher prices (absorption), next target is the $7300 level.
Last week we have called for a short term swing to the downside . Price quickly revisited the $5600 price area , where demand was present. Price retested the support at point  on diminished supply signature, a sign of temporary absorption. The upthrust bar at  has increased volume, suggesting that it will be retested. Price is currently residing in this zone. Volume and momentum are decreasing. As mentioned before, a break below the low of bar  would suggest continuation to the downside. Volume profile offers an alternative look. In the long term, if this big structure hold, the $5200 level would a be a perfect level to watch for a spring, but for now we want to focus only on the current price action.
Tape readers do not predict, but follow and interpret price and volume. Here is a price analog that can help us to track the alternative scenario (continuation toward $7600 level). I have included the current price action of the S&P at the top as a further structural analog (blue box). At point , supply is quickly absorbed on the way down. The shallow test on the top confirms that absorption has occurred, suggesting continuation. The uptrend continues, but  shows signs of shortening of the upward thrust. Demand is present again on the price level highlighted in green , but the weak rally at  warn us that bulls are in jeopardy. Price breaks the green line on low volume and spreads . Low supply? Yes, but demand is poor as well, and the result is to the downside. Price retests the green line , and fails. The break to the downside  is the final confirmation.
The Grayscale Bitcoin Trust confirms the price action of the spot and derivative crypto exchanges. The downsloping lines help us to identify significant price levels. Wait for the retest of the low. A low volume retest followed by a quick recovery would be a constructive price action.
On the intraday, altcoins are not outperforming Bitcoin, confirming that investors are still in “defense mode”.
ETHUSD – 4D Perspective
Ethereum is still consolidating in the lower part of the two-years formation. Price is currently retesting the halfpoint of the big capitulation bar. The dashed grey line is an important level to watch. The extreme volume on the big capitulation bar suggests that supply is present and we will revisit the lows in the next weeks.
