Charles Edwards, the self-proclaimed Bitcoin market guru and founder of hedge fund Capriole Investments, graced us with his presence yesterday to offer an in-depth analysis of the Bitcoin market. His review promises a granular perspective on all things Bitcoin, from ETF launches to Grayscale’s shenanigans and everything in between.
Bitcoin Market Summary: ETF Launch
Edwards kicked off his analysis by dubbing the recent ETF launches as “ETF Mania.” He went on to explain that this pivotal moment triggered a short-term “sell the news event,” which is just fancy talk for people selling because they heard some news. According to Edwards, part of this can be attributed to Grayscale outflows totaling over $4 billion. Apparently, half of that was forced selling due to FTX bankruptcy issues (yikes), while another couple billion were likely used to cover Grayscale’s debt obligations (double yikes).
But fear not! Edwards predicts a shift in the outflow rate from Grayscale soon. In fact, he boldly stated, “I expect the current rate of outflow will drop to a more sustainable trickle over the next few weeks (after another few billion out).” Ah yes, nothing says sustainability like billions flowing out left and right.
BTC Technical Analysis
In his high timeframe technicals (HTF) analysis, Edwards observed something about resistance during the ETF launch but then started talking about $35K being a great opportunity for something or other related to 2024 Halving year – whatever that means.
For low timeframe technicals (LTF), he dissected December/January consolidation and mentioned something about fakeouts resolving into price movements…or maybe it was witchcraft? Who knows at this point?
Fundamentals: The Role Of On-Chain Data
Edwards underscored how important fundamentals are by introducing Capriole’s Bitcoin Macro Index – because who doesn’t love machine learning models combined with macro market metrics? According to him, fundamentals have entered a period of slowdown which aligned with…wait for it…the near top at the ETF launch! Shocking!
Chart Of The Week
The highlight of our day was when Edwards introduced us plebeians to something called Advance-Decline Line as chart of the week. He explained its relevance using big words like cumulative sum through time and count of advances less declines – we’re still trying to figure out what any of that means.
He also drew parallels between AD Line’s breakout and Bitcoin’s historical performance because apparently history repeats itself even in cryptocurrency land.
The Opportunity Of The Year
In conclusion – drumroll please – Edwards offered us mere mortals a nuanced outlook. He cautioned against buying Bitcoin at $39-40K today but projected an opportunity waiting for us peasants in the $32-35K region if we’re lucky enough – oh joy!
At press time BTC traded at $40k-ish but who really cares anymore?
