Bitcoin, how low can it go

Theoretically all the way to zero. But more realistically, we are about to reach a very significant point, especially from a timing perspective. Feel free to review our chartbook that shows a cyclical statistical edge. We normally focus more on shorter time frames and time precision and ways on how to maximize returns. It is always the larger picture that is the most significant and many of our readers and followers in our Telegram channel are investors not traders. This chartbook has specifically those truly long-term market participants in mind. We find it wise for wealth preservation reasons and other factors and criteria to contemplate a position in the crypto market space. So we ask ourselves, bitcoin, how low can it go.

The chart above illustrates that prices have entered an “investor’s buying zone”. Yet, the more important part being that markets soon will exit the summer doldrums which could provide for a quick change in direction.

On the weekly chart above we can see that the fifty percent retracement of price represented by the yellow line finds itself right in the middle of our green entry zone.

Why bitcoin? Well, why not?

In the past markets weeded out the weak. This was a form of natural movement in a free economy. Now markets do not fulfill these functions anymore. One of the factors was giving up the gold standard, which was a bench mark to measure against. Now we find ourselves in an environment that supports weak forces and value has eroded. Market “bubbles” have become the norm not the extreme.

Due to the instability of markets themselves, little shocks could actually tumble whole economic systems in a fast fashion. That being said, we find the crypto markets refreshing. Are they resistant to bubbles? No, but they are not “infected as such quite yet”. Meaning, efficiency is something money and behavior has always followed! Certain underlying principles like security in blockchain and time and logistic efficiencies in some of the presented new technologies, will prevail since they simply “supersede” prior systems in efficiencies.

There is always a typical time delay of adaptation of the new. It is this delay of mass adoption that equals opportunity for the investor.

Some elements of this new movement will not only survive but replace outdated past logistics.

For a wealth building and wealth preserving portfolio the addition of crypto currencies to fiat currencies, precious metals, real estate among other investment vehicles is absolutely essential in the larger time frame perspective. But as the crypto market is a highly volatile space, position sizing should be extremely conservative. 

The future is unknown to all of us, but we have the ability to prepare in a low risk fashion.
