FIB coordinates are 0 = $2.22 and 100 = $19,666

Do NOT assume we will fall into months of bear trend in Phase E as depicted on the image of Wyckoff Distribution Schematic #1 above. Even Wyckoff himself said we do not have to fall into Phase E if the laws of determine we should skip it and fall into another Phase A of a new schematic.

I honestly do not see us blowing through $20k into astronomical highs this particular spring upward. That will not begin until mid to late September or early October where we blast to new ATH in the $50K to $70K range in my opinion.
I've been up all night trying to determine what schematic the Composite Group is using/planing. I believe I've found it and simply wanted to share it. This particular plan "I BELIEVE" they have in play will take course over the rest of this year. I will share what my indicators are saying every now and then. Especially, if I see something of significance. I will be VERY busy this weekend until next weekend with a power upgrade from 225 Amps to 400 Amps here at my house and remodeling the mining room.
My current TA implies a LONG position up to the $20K to $23K range. Which is where I believe we're going until end of May/early June where we will consolidate until end of September/early October where we begin our trek upside to a REAL moon shot around $50K to $70K by end of 2018. Political and geopolitical events could change the timing and price points as events play out. Stay tuned...
DISCLAIMER: This post is simply an "IDEA" and I'm by no means responsible for any trades made based on my TA.
These "possible" future price points were determined with FIB's beginning with:
1.) The one up to the top of the "UT" @ $22,533.92
2.) Then down from $22,533.92 to the 0.5 FIB RT @ $13,588.39
3.) Slightly recover back up to the 0.23 FIB @ $18,311.63
4.) Then back down further to the 0.618 FIB @ $11,477.25
A couple of years ago I created several publications on Loaded Gun Theory (LGT); which is somewhat similar to Elliot Wave but not quite. A pattern was noticed in LGT to provide an APPROXIMATE price target for 1.618 FIB and 0.618 FIB RT on the 4-Day TF for MAJOR Wyckoff "Sprint/Up Thrust" and "Consolidation" events. That pattern for LGT revealed 2-Guns Down for 0.618 FIB RT for bottom of Consolidation events and 3-Guns Down for 1.618 FIB to Peak of Spring/Up Thrust events.
I also found if we have an Up Thrust event of more than 4 times increase in price from previous bottom to new ATH, the "2-Guns Down" rule does not apply for 0.618 FIB RT for bottom of Consolidation Event after new ATH is established. Which means we will NOT have our usual 40 to 50 percent drop from ATH to 0.618 FIB RT. The drop will actually be much more significant after being significantly over-bought.
I spent some time to use the Loaded Gun Theory to provide an "approximate" price target to peak of MAJOR Up Thrust events and the bottom of MAJOR consolidation events from till the end of 2018. Keep in mind these numbers are NOT exact and are only used to get a general idea of what approximate price point(s) we're looking for on those MAJOR events.
This first chart is to provide an over all picture with few details discernible.
This next chart shows more detail of the "3-Guns Down" to determine an APPROXIMATE price point of where we're heading this current trip up for this Wyckoff Up Thrust Event in Phase B of the Schematic.
This next chart shows more detail of the "2-Guns Down" to determine an APPROXIMATE price point of where we're heading down from the NEXT peak at $17,226.15 to the 0.618 FIB RT at the bottom of the consolidation event.
One more chart to show the next 1.618 FIB to the peak of the next Up Thrust event to occur approximately September 1, 2018. This should be enough for you to get an idea of what I was doing.
If you are the curious type and wondering WHERE I came up with the DATES for the peaks and the bottoms of each remaining event, then have a look at this chart from last year. NOTE the dates at the bottom of the chart underneath the vertical time lines:
LGT is still a work in progress and requires at least another year to five years in it's development because I need more HISTORY to be created for confirmation and possible development of more rules.
We had our decisive tests of remaining supply. Now, “smart money” operators have decided it's to be marked up. The previous drives down has establish a "mental" thought of a continued repetition of the same move. In reality, this marks the beginning of a new uptrend, trapping the late sellers, or bears. In Wyckoff's method, a successful test of supply represented by a spring (or a shakeout) provides a high-probability trading opportunity. A low-volume spring (or a low-volume test of a shakeout) indicates we are likely ready to move up, so this is a good time to initiate at least a partial long position.
The appearance of an SOS shortly after a spring or shakeout validates this analysis quite easily. However, in Accumulation Schematic #2, the testing of supply can occur higher up in the TR WITHOUT a spring or shakeout; when this occurs, the identification of a change in trend can be hard to identify without also using proper indicators.
I cannot remember if I told you or not but you ought to go to "indicators" and add "Godmode 3.1 Mod with LSMA - LTCUSD" to your charts. It's a lot like my Phoenix 1.393 on my charts. Also in indicators, type in "Stochastic RSI" and add that to your arsenal. I would do this for each chart you have. If you have questions, post your chart with comments or questions in one of my ideas and I or a knowledgeable follower will provide an answer to your question. You may have to be patient at times because I might be sleeping.
I remember when I first became a member on Trading View years ago. I did not know ANYTHING about trading. I especially, didn't know anything about creating charts and using all the features on the charts. I still don't know how to use all the features yet. Mainly because I have not found a need to learn all of them yet.
Post ideas with your charts as you get more comfortable with creating charts and using indicators. Be open to constructive criticism and welcome others to post their charts and comments in an effort to encourage growth in trading knowledge and to possibly come to a consensus on the idea you posted.
Be defiant against haters and put them in their place. Especially, if such haters don't even take the time themselves to learn or have the balls to expose themselves to the public out of fear of being wrong, criticized or laughed. Simply keep your heart and mind focused on the knowledge and experience you KNOW you will gain over time as long as you continue to put forth effort to learn and share.
WE LEARN BEST BY DOING. So, as NIKE says, "Just Do It."
I wanted to be sure to share it here with those who navigate to this publication as well. Here it is:
I had a look at the 4-Day, 7-Day, 14-Day and 1-Month charts at current location and your 2014 time frame. They do look similar - in regards to my indicators. Then, I had an epiphany. If we go to $11 or $12 thousand and turn back down, this COULD be a sign of an Automatic Rally in Phase B of a Wyckoff Accumulation Schematic. What would confirm it as being a Wyckoff Accumulation Schematic would depend on how far we dropped. If we dropped to only about $5,400 to $5,500 on LOW VOLUME (Just below the trading range), that would be an EXCELLENT SIGNAL we are in a Wyckoff Accumulation Schematic instead of a Distribution Schematic as I posted in my most recent publication. If we continue down much further than $5,400, that would be a signal we were in a Distribution Schematic Phase E from the previous ATH of $19,666. Which means we would be looking for the bottom of a selling climax to begin an Accumulation Schematic.
If we continue higher than $12,000 and go on up to $15,00 or higher, this will be a STRONG signal we were in an Up Thrust EVENT of Phase B in a Wyckoff Distribution Schematic. Which is what I've posted in my publication.
Bottom line, it all depends on how high we go up between now and June 1st.

I did not understand half of what you say but it sounds profound...
Sure, you're welcome.
In case you were wondering, TR = Trading Range; SOS = Sign of Strength. Those acronyms with their definitions is in a text bubble in most of my charts.
When I said, "We had our decisive tests of remaining supply," The "supply" I'm referring to are those who wish to unload their "supply" of BTC to take profits for whatever reason. We had three (3) big test of supply on the way down to the bottom. Each time, that supply overcame demand. Also, each time the supply unloaded, the volume started out high but lower and lower volume was evident with each dump. Especially, the last dump we had.
