VIDEO: Bitcoin Price Analysis (BTCUSD): September 9, 2022

This video provides a detailed view of Bitcoin market cycles using the Pi Cycle Bottom indicator and other tools. A recent exchange between Tony “The Bull” and the creator of the Bollinger Bands is also a subject of discussion and associated analysis.

Are Bitcoin Bottoms as Simple as Pi?

The Pi Cycle Bottom Indicator fired back in July, but price action tested lows for the second time. Looking back at history, it is visually clear that the tool has been fairly accurate in its top and bottom signals.

For further reassurance, we used technical indicators such as the Relative Strength Index and LMACD. As a reminder, the LMACD is the logarithmic version of the MACD, which provides signals over long time frames that allow for a better cycle-to-cycle comparison.

Bearish momentum hit at exactly the same point in the past two market cycles on weekly timeframes, coincidentally closely coinciding with the firing of the pi cycle bottom indicator. The RSI has also reached oversold levels in both previous instances. Layer in some cyclic tools, and we have what looks like a pattern.

Exploring the Bollinger Bounce

The Bollinger Bands recently behaved like previous setups, with the most recent bottoming out at $29K for the first time, before finally breaking down after revisiting this year.

The last major bottom also had a similar but less pronounced bullish divergence on the RSI. The current setup also resembles the “China Pump” of October 2019, where Bitcoin climbed by more than 40% in less than 72 hours.

A similar move of such magnitude would take the leading cryptocurrency by market cap to over $26,000 per coin on Monday afternoon. The creator of the tool, John Bollinger, warns that the current setup lacks the necessary “squeeze” for a “head fake” – terminology specific to the wave the Bollinger Bands carry.
