Crypto-Currencies: Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum for January 28th

Crypto-currencies are now mainstream trading instruments so and I am providing charts here on a weekly basis. I plan to cover just three cryptos: Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Ethereum. The point of this weekly post is to show the crowd psychology behind the price movement to find profitable trades among these instruments.

BTC broke lower and penetrated the third standard deviation bollinger two weeks ago, has rallied and has backtested the second standard deviation bollinger band. I am expecting a rally from here and Monday is a turn date on my cycle system. This is the first time I am trying a cycle date on Bitcoin so this is a bit of an experiment. We will see how it performs. I am expecting a conversion of the middle band this week.

ETHUSD has completed its wave 4 in black is starting its next legg higher, I am expecting the low from last week to hold. Convert the middle band and I am expecting the start of wave 3.

LTCUSD is behind and lagging the other two in the next 5 wave sequence. I am expecting it to play catchup this week. Break the trendline and we should see a completion of wave 1 around the 252 area.

The ratio charts below show parity between these three instruments. The LTCBTC chart has formed a triangle which should call price higher which means LTC should outperform BTC in the coming weeks.

More to come next week. I am most interested in the first cycle date on BTC – if this methodology works, I will expand the coverage to the other charts next week.
