Cautious on Calling Correction Complete

Both Bitcoin and Ether can complete their corrections right here if the correction is a WXY as is so common in cryptos, but until we see a proper 5 waves up I am cautious with saying that.

Cryptos in Final Approach?

Both Bitcoin and Ethereum did a great job of staying under resistance, and breaking down today, in what I expect to be 5th of larger 5.

Can We Bottom?

I'm going to keep this very simple tonight. Our ending diagonals are very extended, beyond normal fib levels, particularly Ether. If we count anemic wave 4's as shown, this overthrown wave 5 in both may be a bottom but I would want to see an impulse through our B waves in thirds to prove it. This is $4033 and $112 for Bitcoin and Ether respectively. Until then, it is best to assume we'll see 4 and 5 down the road. I see the micro differences typical i a local bottom forming on the charts, but we meed to see rally kickin to prove it.  Bottom line: A bottom is not in, but it might be close.  As I noted in last night's report: Bitcoin The ending diagonal is valid as long as $4260 is not breached, but I prefer to not see $4030 broken from here to completion. We appear to be aiming at $3285 for a bottom unless we see overthrow in the 5th.

Nightly Cryptocurrency Report: Calm Before the Storm

Until $6200 Bitcoin (bitstamp), and $212 Ether (Bitmex) are breached, I have every reason to expect we'll at least see $4600-4800 Bitcoin, and $120 to $160 Ether.
