On Oct. 20, Bitcoin climbed to a new all-time high above $66,000 — quite a rebound from its price level just below $30,000 as recently as July.
At that time, the sentiment was quite bearish. Here are just a couple of sample headlines:
- Bitcoin: [Investment Firm Chairman] Says Price Can Crash to $10,000 (Bloomberg, July 9)
- Why You Should Worry About the Next Crypto Crash… (Money, July 20)
All the while, Elliott Wave International’s head crypto analyst Tony Carrion was saying, in effect, “hold your horses. Bitcoin’s run is far from over.”
In the “Cryptocurrency” section of our July Global Market Perspective, when the grandaddy of digital currencies was still in freefall, Tony told subscribers:
Bitcoin [is] at or near the end of its [Elliott wave] correction.
Short, sweet and to the point.
Well before July was over, Bitcoin found a bottom and has been in “bounce back” mode ever since.
The message of the Elliott wave model was the basis for Tony’s prescient Bitcoin call.
In the September Global Market Perspective, Tony again got right to the point in his Bitcoin analysis:
A developing [upward wave] is in progress.
And, as all Bitcoin observers know, that upward Elliott wave has persisted well into October.
Yet, on Oct. 20, the headline of a major financial website stated (CNBC):
Bitcoin jumps to new high above $66,000 after landmark U.S. ETF launch
But as just described, Bitcoin’s new all-time high was in the cards, according to the Elliott wave model, months ago.
As of this writing on Oct. 25, Bitcoin is trading a little below that all-time high.
