The Bitcoin price is currently trading inside one of its most significant support areas to date. A breakdown with high volume could initiate a rapid price decrease. There is a pattern from 2016 that suggests the price will reverse near the current level. A decrease below $7600 would invalidate the possibility.

The Bitcoin price often follows similar or identical patterns that is has previously created. We have previously reported one such long-term fractal that suggests the correction beginning in December 2017 and the one in November 2013 are very similar

Well-known cryptocurrency analyst and trader @Cryptomichnl stated that the current Bitcoin price movement is very similar to one in 2016 — which was the precursor to the bull market lasting nearly two years.

The retracement occurred in February 2016 and the price continued to make new highs afterward.

Bitcoin Price Similarities

The similarities between the two movements begin with the low. After the 2013/2017 highs, it took the Bitcoin price roughly 400 days to reach a bottom. This was combined with an oversold weekly RSI value both times, suggesting that the price is at similar points in the market cycle.

Afterward, a very steep upward move ensued, followed by a correction. However, instead of correcting further, the price reversed and continued to make higher highs.

The tweet makes the assumption that the current price movement might follow a pattern similar to that after February 2016, outlined by the second arrow in the top graph.

However, the tweet does not state that the corrections are identical. Rather, it states that the likely reversal point (yellow arrow) which came after a sharp decrease and its ensuing retracement was almost identical.

Let’s isolate these movements and see if we can reach a verdict.


The 2016 spike transpired through two daily candlesticks, separated by three days without significant movement. The volume was average throughout.

After the move, the Bitcoin price retraced to the 0.88 fib level before resuming its increase. Additionally, while the RSI was oversold, there was no bullish divergence preceding the spike.

In 2019, the spike occurred with significant volume, larger than that of the preceding decrease. It transpired over two successive daily candlesticks. But, the second one had a very long upper wick — a bearish development.

The Bitcoin price is currently at the 0.786 fib level. The 0.88 level is slightly below $7800. A breakdown below this level would invalidate the possibility of the fractal.

Finally, the movement was preceded by significant bullish divergence in the RSI.

To conclude, the two movements have several similarities, mostly visible in higher time-frames, which show that the current price should be at a similar point after the 2017 high as the price in 2016 was after the 2013 high.

However, they are very different when analyzed individually. While the technical indicators are bullish in the 2019 movement, the market structure is bearish. On the other hand, the opposite is true in 2016. Therefore, considering them as fractals seems like a bit of a stretch.

A breakdown below the 0.88 fib level at $7800 would confirm the fractal invalidation.
