Bitcoin analysis for 19/12/2017

Immediately after the start of the Bitcoin futures trading, by the CME Group, which will be closed in January, Bitcoin's price jumped to $ 20,800, after which, at the time of publication, it fell back to $ 18,800. However, contracts that expire in February, March, and June are still valued at $ 20,000. Considering the current market price of $ 18,500, Wall Street believes that the price is overstated. These conclusions are drawn despite the fact that the fall of 4% in the world of cryptocurrencies is relatively small.

The media also became interested in the opening of new CME Group products. The BBC has reported this fact, stating that the opening of this market is conducive to the widespread adoption of Bitcoin. The BBC considered it necessary to combine the above event with the statement of the chairman of UBS, Axel Weber, who expressed the opinion that Bitcoins are not money.

There are many theories about what will happen after the opening of the CME market. Although there are legitimate arguments for the possibility of investors breaking, new ones should remember that the trend is their friend. Recently, even JPMorgan Chase president Jamie Dimon admitted that before his fall, Bitcoin can be priced at even $100k at some point in time.

Let's now take a look at the Bitcoin technical picture at the H4 time frame. The price has made a new high at the level of $19,661, which can be labeled as the top for the wave (5). The local support at the level of $17,894 has been tested and together with a weekly pivot at the level of $18.062 will now act as a strong support zone for the price. Please notice a strong bearish divergence between the price and momentum indicator, which clearly favors the downside correction scenario.
