18 January Bitcoin price prediction – Why it will rise again


The Cryptocurrency market continues its bearish run this week. Bitcoin is having its biggest dip in years. How could price behave in the coming weeks? Bitcoin bearish continuation or bullish resumption? The following 18 January Bitcoin price prediction give clues based on technical analysis.

18 January, AtoZForex  – Bitcoin lost almost $5000 between 15th and 17th January ( 2 days) to continue the bearish run that started nearly mid-December 2017. Late yesterday, price was at a month low to trade just above $9000. There is a bit of recovery currently to $11000-$12000 today. Will the bullish trend start all again?

It was almost inevitable that the dip currently happening in the Crypto market would be. Last year, this market rallied in a mind blowing way with gains of 500% to 13000% for a good number of coins. In December 2017, Bitcoin was at an all-time high looking to break above $20000. Technically, using Elliott wave theory, a dip was imminent. We warned before the start of the dip. Price was meant to have completed the 3rd minor wave, a 4th wave dip was expected to $8000-$9000 before the bullish trend resumes With regular updates, we followed up this bearish move.

On 6th December, we had the chart below.

We expected the rally to continue and provided the reversal price level we had in mind in the 13th December update as quoted below.

The 3rd minor wave now appear closer to completion than not. Price could rally to $18000-$19000 before this happen. A strong dip to $12000 or below is likely especially if there is a strong break below $16000

Barely a week after, we saw price dropped fast and we made an update on 22 December with the chart below.

In the same update, the following forecast was added.

Price is already about hitting the first bearish target at $12000. It could go deeper to $10000 or $8000 before the rally resumes. Anything less than $8000 would mean a big crash is coming

Since the drop was established, we have followed the dip closely. In the last update, we had this expectation.

If price breaks below the channel like (which is very likely), there is a high probability that Bitcoin will fall further to $9000 or even $8000 before a new breath of bullish relief would be expected

Price did as expected. It went down as deep as $9100 before the current recovery. What next?

A corrective zigzag pattern is about to complete. The reversal zone is set at $7500-$8000. Price may be on its way above $25ooo if this pattern holds and reverse at this zone. The dip to this zone could still happen. Stay tuned for updates.
