Major Bitcoin Break Down Suggests The Same For Stocks

On Tuesday, Bitcoin made its break down out of a large triangle pattern that was coming to a make or break point. This is worse as the more typical pattern would be to break out in the same direction it came into the triangle, i.e., up.

Bitcoin Breaks Down Out of Massive Triangle: Next Target $5,000

This was no shabby break. Bitcoin was down over $1,500, $1,000 of that in 30 minutes as it first broke key resistance at $9,400. The next move is often as large as the widest part of the triangle, which would be about $4,400, or about a $5,000 target from that break-out point at the bottom trend line.

Why is This Important?

I have been using Bitcoin as the final, steep bubble in this second broader tech bubble, as the young and super-overvalued internet stocks were in the last tech bubble.

This key break after an already too-long correction in my $32,000 final bubble projection strongly invalidates that option and makes this likely a B-wave or bear market rally top back at $13,827 in late June. The ultimate low before a 17-year or so bull market like the internet stocks would be at a minimum the $3,170 low last December. I would project more back to the bubble origin in late April 2017 around $1,250 – $1,300.

No run to $32,000 on Bitcoin, no final blast to 10,000 on the Nasdaq – by my best calculations!

The Megaphone Pattern Continues

So, that leaves my second scenario with a completed megaphone pattern for the Dow and S&P 500 – and a likely final top for them. Last week I showed the chart of the Dow’s mini megaphone pattern that was due to be tested soon – and the markets were not able to push even to slight new highs to complete that pattern.

Dow Mini Megaphone Pattern Holding: Next Target $20,000

The megaphone pattern is simply one of higher highs followed by lower lows, until you get that third high which now looks like it was back in July at 27,399. This one completes a larger megaphone pattern with peaks in 2000, 2007 and now. The lowest next target would be at that bottom trend line of lower lows at around 20,000. That’s a 27% drop and larger than the September to December crash in late 2018.
