This video gives an in-depth look at the Bitcoin market cycles using Wyckoff Theory and other cyclical instruments.

What is the real story behind Bitcoin Mark Down and The Composite Man?

Wyckoff Theory is founded on the notion that large-scale operators, which he called “the Composite Man”, outsmart retail traders all the time. The market is known also for its phases, of distribution and accumulation, as well as mark up/mark down phases in between.

Recent price movement continues to look a lot like Wyckoff accumulation. Price reached $17,500 selling point after breaking through preliminary support. What we potentially just saw this week was a secondary test in phase B. that’s the good news. Unfortunately, it could take a while before we see prices rise again.

Crypto Winter Could Be Overthrown By A Spring

That was also just one of Wyckoff’s accumulation schematics. The spring is another schematic. According to the diagram, the spring would be around December while the breakout would take places in April. 

This is particularly notable because it was the time when Bitcoin hit its bottom in 2018. It also marks when the accumulation phases finished in 2019. It is also interesting to note that Bitcoin has used December as a timing factor for its tops and bottoms throughout its history.

Wyckoff, Gann and Other Technical Analysis Greats

The 2017 peak occurred in December 2017, which is why we’re currently testing it for the umpteenth consecutive time. The month of December mysteriously was one of WD Gann’s favorite months to look for tops and bottoms, and it was due to how the Sun conjuncts Mercury while in Sagittarius.

Wykoff and Gann were both great financial thinkers. These two are well-known as the financial giants Charles Merrill Lynch, Charles Dow of Dow Theory, Ralph Nelson Elliott, who invented Elliott Wave Theory, and Charles Dow of Dow Theory.

Gann’s methodology was the most mystical of them all. You can see how one of Gann’s tools, Gann fan was executed flawlessly in this example. It is the breakthrough from the bear markets and an amazing 500% increase.

What to Make of the BTCUSD Current Market Cycle

As Wyckoff, Wyckoff, and other luminaries believed markets are cyclical. When an asset has become too expensive, the cycle starts with accumulation. When demand exceeds supply, mark down begins. This is when the retail distribution begins. Supply outweighs Demand.  

Although it sounds easy, this is how the system works. Based only on the visual inspection of history and how it has sounded in the past, there is a possibility that we might be near accumulation. We will mark up soon enough.


It seems like it is almost time to start another bull run. Source: BTCUSD on | Source: BTCUSD on
