Bitcoin’s All-Time High Foretold Before U.S. ETF Launch
“A developing upward wave is in progress”

Updated: October 26, 2021
On Oct. 20, Bitcoin climbed to a new all-time high above $66,000 -- quite a rebound from its price level just below $30,000 as recently as July.
At that time, the sentiment was quite bearish. Here are just a couple of sample headlines:
- Bitcoin: [Investment Firm Chairman] Says Price Can Crash to $10,000 (Bloomberg, July 9)
- Why You Should Worry About the Next Crypto Crash... (Money, July 20)
All the while, Elliott Wave International's head crypto analyst Tony Carrion was saying, in effect, "hold your horses. Bitcoin's run is far from over."
In the "Cryptocurrency" section of our July Global Market Perspective, when the grandaddy of digital currencies was still in freefall, Tony told subscribers:
Bitcoin [is] at or near the end of its [Elliott wave] correction.
Short, sweet and to the point.
Well before July was over, Bitcoin found a bottom and has been in "bounce back" mode ever since.
The message of the Elliott wave model was the basis for Tony's prescient Bitcoin call.
In the September Global Market Perspective, Tony again got right to the point in his Bitcoin analysis:
A developing [upward wave] is in progress.
And, as all Bitcoin observers know, that upward Elliott wave has persisted well into October.
Yet, on Oct. 20, the headline of a major financial website stated (CNBC):
Bitcoin jumps to new high above $66,000 after landmark U.S. ETF launch
But as just described, Bitcoin's new all-time high was in the cards, according to the Elliott wave model, months ago.
As of this writing on Oct. 25, Bitcoin is trading a little below that all-time high.

Forget the Fed -- Watch the Waves
The Federal Reserve, and to a lesser degree the European Central Bank, have dominated the conversation about interest rates lately. But watch our Interest Rates Pro Service analyst Ivo Zhelev apply textbook Elliott waves to forecast the price of the UK's Long Gilt -- and, by extension, UK interest rates -- without a single glance at central bank statements.

Gold Mining Stocks Lead Gold Lower: What’s “Fundamentals” Got to Do with It?
In mid-April, gold mining stocks led by VANECK GOLD MINERS ETF turned down from one-year highs to 3-month lows in May. Gold followed, reversing from all-time highs on May 4 to multi-month lows on May 25. We don't need another "fundamental" explanation for why.
