5 Ways to Identify Bitcoin Tops and Bottoms

Buying low and selling high may seem like a straightforward strategy, but it's not always that easy (hardly ever).

In this article, I will discuss 5 ways to identify Bitcoin tops and bottoms, so you can make more informed decisions and increase your chances of success.

1. Look for the Narrative

The first thing to consider when trying to identify Bitcoin tops and bottoms is the narrative.

This refers to the general consensus and belief among investors about the current state of the market.

It's important to remember that narratives can be wrong, and relying on them too heavily can lead to missed opportunities and losses. For example, during the 2020 cycle, many people hesitated to buy at $16.5k because they were waiting for a recession.

Similarly, many investors held off on selling during the last tops of $64k and $69k because they were waiting for the $100k promised by the Stock-to-Flow model.

These narratives ended up being incorrect, causing investors to miss out on potential profits.

To avoid falling victim to false narratives, it's essential to stay informed and make decisions based on data, rather than rumors or predictions.

You will notice that I always refer to the data when making decisions that I inform you on via Twitter.

2. Expect Something Different

While Bitcoin cycles may not repeat exactly, they do tend to follow similar patterns.

However, the market is extremely unpredictable, and it's important to expect the unexpected. It's crucial to have a plan in place, but it's equally important to be prepared for that plan to fail.

As an investor and trader, you should always be open to adjusting your strategy based on new information and market changes.

This mindset will help you stay flexible and make informed decisions even in volatile market conditions.

If you are investing in Bitcoin, as an early stage technology, you need to expect a lot of price volatility.

However, the good news is that the price volitility is where the big investing and trading opportunity is.

It's what makes trading Bitcoin superior to trading the stock market, in my view.

3. Watch the Data

One of the most effective ways to identify Bitcoin tops and bottoms is by analysing data.

There are a number of free resources available to investors. I would encourage you to use these (and potentially others): blockchain.com, woobull.com, and blockchaincenter.net.

By studying data such as price charts, transaction volume, and network activity, you can gain valuable insights into market trends and potential price movements.

However, it's important to remember that data analysis is not foolproof and should be used in conjunction with other strategies. Data can sometimes be spoofed, or simply coincidental.

4. Wait for Guarantees, Then Expect Shortcomings

At tops and bottoms, many crypto analysts and influencers will start making guarantees about future prices.

It's important to remember that nothing is ever guaranteed in the world of trading.

Your favourite YouTuber is, unfortunately, not your friend, and he or she is not there to make you money. They are doing everything they can to maximise their own profit and yeild on their time. You would likely to do the same, in their shoes.


(1) they're not as smart as their previous luck or profits might make them appear, and actually have little idea about what they're doing (other than creating engaging content); or

(2) they're a scammer and using their subscribers to desperately try to pump the price for their benefit.

It's crucial to be cautious and avoid making decisions based solely on the promises, or signals, of others. This is particularly true where you do not have visibility of their trades.

Instead, rely on research and analysis to make informed decisions.

5. Stay Ahead

Finally, to successfully identify Bitcoin tops and bottoms, it's essential to stay ahead of the competition.

Many people in the crypto space are focused solely on making a profit, at whatever social or moral cost. They are not above shilling scams or making unrealistic promises to entice their followers or subscribers.

To stay ahead, you need to start thinking for yourself and be proactive in your research and analysis.

This means being open to new information and staying flexible in your trading strategy.

Concluding remarks

In conclusion, identifying Bitcoin tops and bottoms can be challenging, but it's not impossible.

By considering the narrative, expecting the unexpected, analyzing data, being cautious of guarantees, and staying ahead of the competition, you can increase your chances dramatically.
