How to Anticipate Bitcoin’s Next Big Move
The granddaddy of cryptocurrencies hits year-and-a-half high

Bitcoin bulls have been as happy as the proverbial "bug in a rug" lately.
On Nov. 9, the digital currency hit a year-and-a-half high of $37,972. Of course, that's a far cry from its all-time high of $68,906 in Nov. 2021, yet it's nothing to sneeze at when you consider bitcoin was trading just shy of $26,600 when our September 2023 Global Market Perspective published.
On Sept. 1, the monthly publication showed this chart and said:
The second-wave correction in Bitcoin discussed last month carried over to September but should otherwise be nearing a conclusion...If Bitcoin is tracing out an expanded flat for wave 2, it should end with a low beneath 24800.
Around that time, there were those who thought bitcoin was going to drop way lower than $24,800.
Indeed, on Sept. 8, a headline from The Times in the U.K. asked:
Is a bitcoin crash coming?
Just a few days after that headline published, bitcoin hit a low of $24,901, and as noted, since then, went on to hit that multi-month high of $37,972. That was a 52% rally from the low.
Tony Carrion is our Senior Cryptocurrency Analyst and back in September, he also made a bullish call on Ethereum. On Nov. 9, the cryptocurrency climbed above $2,000 for the first time since April. That was a jump of about 7% versus it's high the prior day.
Of course, cryptocurrency investors are wondering if the rally will last.

Mainly just seven stocks have been holding up the U.S. stock market. As EWI recently noted: "There has never been such a high weighting in the S&P in such a few number of companies." Elliott wave analysis can help you anticipate major shifts in crowd behavior.
Many investors believe that the stock market reacts rationally to news like corporate earnings, oil "shocks," economic data, Fed announcements and so forth. But does the evidence support the notion of such exogenous causality? There are several examples of stock market "myths" and here's just one of them.
The cryptocurrency stage has a clear standout: Solana. On November 16, the world's #6 crypto soared to 18-month highs, outperforming all cryptos in Oct. and Nov. SOL's surge was right in line with its bullish Elliott wave pattern -- NOT a ChatGPT prediction.
