Bitcoin Technical Analysis

First things first: Bitcoin crossed above its 20 day moving average yesterday. Volatility for Bitcoin has been contracting over the past two weeks relative to volatility over the past month. Whether volatility reverts will be something to watch. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 30 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving down. Traders will also want to note, though, that a counter trend — meaning a trend going up — can be seen on the 14 day timeframe. If you’re looking to trade the primary trend, this may be a good opportunity to sell rallies created by the counter trend. Or to view things another way, note that out of the past 14 days Bitcoin’s price has gone up 10 them.

Efficient Market Hypothesis and Bitcoin Stock-to-Flow Model | by PlanB | Medium

It seems that these risks have been overestimated by the market, and that bitcoin really was a great investment opportunity, in line with S2F model….The efficient bitcoin market not only discounts the fundamental value of scarcity (S2F model), but also all these risks: Note that without all these risks bitcoin’s value would be much higher, possibly in line with S2F model….EMH implies that S2F and the model forecasts should be already priced in by the market, because S2F model uses publicly available S2F data….Bitcoin return was not in line with risk, but very much in line with S2F model….My conclusion is that bitcoin markets are indeed reasonably efficient and price in S2F model, but also overestimate risk….Therefore, I prefer using S2F model over a classic risk & return model to forecast future bitcoin price.
