Bitcoin Analysis – January 2023

Bitcoin Technical Analysis – January 2023

Since I looked at some charts in December 2022, I’ve mentioned to a few people, that Bitcoin Prices are near the low part of their price channel. Indicating that the price bottom is in, and it’s a good time to buy Bitcoin/BTC.

Some numbers and charts are here.   Usual disclaimer:  NOT financial advice.

Bitcoin Returns 2010 to 2022:

This chart lists the BTC/Bitcoin prices at the start and end of the year. And gain or loss throughout the year.

Bitcoin Yearly Chart, Linear Scale:

The prices were actually very dramatic in 2011, and 2013. But when the high on the chart is $69K, the absolute price rises are small, and hard to see.

Bitcoin Yearly Chart, Log Scale:

The price scale here is logarithmic / log. Note how the scale on the right hand side goes up exponentially.

The log scale show the dramatic percentage rises in price better.

In 2011, BTC prices ranged from $2.22, to $15. Ten years later, in 2021, BTC prices ranged from $27,734, to $69,000.

Looks like every 3rd or 4th year, the price drops dramatically. Then rises again for the next three years.

“I have created an easy buy and sell channel using #Bitcoin on a Log-Log scale

It has been accurate on calling all major tops and bottoms so far

Below green line = Buy
Above red line = Sell

This says it’s time to buy”

So, some long term technical indicators, all making bullish crossovers.
