Elliott Wave is principally a study of mass human sentiment so Bit Coin is ideally suited to this particular analysis technique. Looking at the long term Bi Weekly Chart of Bit Coin relative to the US Dollar the currency appears to still be in its initial Primary Degree Wave 3 up from that all time low. Within that we can count all of the Intermediate Degree Waves (1), (2), (3) and (4) as complete and are thus within the Intermediate Degree Wave (5). Analyzing this final Intermediate Degree Wave (5) in more detail (Weekly Chart) we can also count the Minor Degree wave 1, 2 and 3 as having completed which suggests that the current move down is in fact corrective and more precisely is a Minor Degree Wave 4 upon completion of which we expect to see BitCoin push higher and exceed the December 2017 all time high.
In conclusion, I expect to see BitCoin make another swing lower to complete the final sub wave of this drawn out Minor Wave 4 correction towards the 2488 - 4175 area before we then see the next swing to the upside. The target zone for the completion of all of Primary Degree Wave 3 is from 30027 to as high as 77897. On completion of the Primary Degree Wave 3 we would then expect to see Bit Coin revisit considerably lower levels before any further gains are seen. Considering this scenario there will continue to be plenty of ammunition for both sides of the extreme sentiment to hurl across Social Media platforms around the world for some time to come.
