• BTC price sentiment is in extreme fear, which is contrarian bullish.
  • Bitcoin price is forming a B wave triangle.
  • Invalidation of the bullish thesis is a breach below the swing low at $26,500.

Bitcoin price sideways action is now becoming more clear. A rally could occur towards $33,700. 

Bitcoin price is prepping for a breakout

Bitcoin price Fear and Greed index has been residing in extreme fear levels for over two weeks. This Index can be used as a contrarian bullish signal since more investors are unwilling to invest in the current BTC price leaves more room for smart money to accumulate large orders. 

The Bitcoin price also hints at smart money involvement on the 6-hour chart as what was once thought of as a confusing sideways market is now coiling into a very bullish pattern.

Bitcoin price is forming a sideways triangle. The long sideways action justifies a wave B pattern from an Elliott wave perspective. It has disproportionate time spent in the $30,000 zone since the initial countertrend rally that occurred at $31,200 on May 13th. If the technicals are correct, one more countertrend profit-taking rally will occur with targets at $33,700 and $34,000 before strong bearish resistance returns.
