Facebook Zuckerberg of Facebook on October 23 testified to Congress on the Libra cryptocurrency project. Hearing not as smooth as hopedcrypto communities, which affected the price of digital assets such as Bitcoin. One Wednesday, BTCUSD fell more than $ 750 a day. But was Libra Zuckerberg's testimony a real reason for the fall of Bitcoin? As analysts of the Elliott Waves, we believe that the news is striking only for those who are not aware of a larger trend. In the case of BTCUSD, a big trend was heading south when we sent the next schedule to subscribers on October 9th.
Two full weeks before Zuckerberg’s hearingThe BTCUSD Congress ranged around $ 8150. Since the price was trading sideways for some time, we thought that there was a correction in the fourth wave. It makes sense to expect more strength in the “y” wave to a new local maximum before the bears return in wave 5. We thought that a reversal should occur in the price range between $ 8,500 and $ 9,000. However, the exact level was unknown, and the choice of peaks is not worth the risk. Therefore, it was better to wait for the bears to announce their return before going short. By the time we sent our next update on October 13th, they had already returned.
What we thought was a three-wavesequence in the wave "y" turned out to be a five-wave impulse in the wave "c". This, however, did not change the overall outlook at all. With the bearish reversal already at $ 8820, it's time for more weakness to a new low. Wave 5 was supposed to break through the bottom of wave 3, which meant a decrease to at least $ 7,700. Ten days before Mark Zuckerberg went to Congress to testify about Libra on Facebook, the Elliott Wave installation was ready for another drop in BTCUSD.
So far, Facebook CEO has been responding toquestions from lawmakers, the largest cryptocurrency has fallen to an intraday low of $ 7,293. The question is, did BTCUSD grow if congressmen were more susceptible to Libra? Hard to say. All we know is that there was an incomplete Elliott Wave pattern on Bitcoin's hourly chart. It looks much closer to completion now.
