Crypto-Currencies: Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum for January 22nd

This is a weekly post covering Cryptocurrencies, specifically  Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Ethereum. These instruments provide trading opportunities with out sized gains. I hope the analysis presented here helps you profit in these instruments.

BTCUSD — Price action  may be indicating a longer term turn in Cryptos as mentioned last week. We may be in a flat which would call for lower prices in BTC to 14500 but we see a shallow retest and higher highs, this will signal a turn. 5 waves up here on BTC and ETH, look for a retrace this week.  The ETH chart is more significant than BTC.


ETHUSD –   Same as last week, the consolidation pattern is signalling continuation lower and we are at resistance so watch for a pull back this week. If we see monthly pivot at 1265 then a new high then the turn is in. Or we convert 1265 then we see the lower low to 1050. Either way look to buy ETH and other Cryptos, long term signal is forming.


LTCUSD –  Megaphone pattern here may break down but if the lower trend line is support and we break to a higher high then lean long. Break the lower trend line and we will see a lower low.


We have a possible reversal here in Cryptos, not enough price actin to confirm. Currently we are 5 up and looking for a pull back. We could stil be in wave C of a flat.  Watch ETH as it is the best formed pattern. Cryptos are very close to a long term reversal here as this consolidation pattern continues sideways and has not broken up …. yet.    Watch ETH for clues as it should lead the way higher.    Trade Smart and Trade Safe in 2023.
