Has the Bitcoin bubble burst? I look at price and volume, along with trend lines, to answer this question.

Last analysis stated: “Instead of trying to figure out where this bubble may go, I’ll focus on figuring out when it may have popped. A strong bearish candlestick pattern at the weekly chart level and a trend channel or trend line breach will be looked for.”

There is a completed weekly candlestick at the end of today’s session, and it is a strong bearish engulfing candlestick pattern.

But the channel is not yet breached.

Volume supports the idea of a high in place, but the bottom line is that there is substantial risk to any short position while price remains within the channel.

Look now for a bounce to not make a new all time high, which should exhibit weakness in volume. Then look for the channel breach.

Manage risk diligently.

A huge drop in volume suggests exhaustion.
