Weekly Market Wrap: Is the Bear Market Ready to Resume?

Join our Telegram channel (9000+ subscribers) for daily market analysis & trading tips: t.me/synapsetrading

After a strong market rally that last lasted the past few weeks, we have started to see prices come down last week.

Is this just another pullback in the new bull market, or is this the resumption of the bear market?

Either way, it does not matter, because our plan was to take short positions near the top (which we did), and now that we are currently in the money, we can use a trailing stoploss to manage our profits as prices continue to head down.

Just last night, we have already seen crypto prices drop more than 10% in one day, putting the price of Ethereum (ETHUSD) at $1625. For reference, we shorted it near the $2000 level.

Another of our big wins recently is the leveraged long position in USD, which still has potential to make new highs.

Over the medium/long term, I have a more bearish bias, which is why I have accumulated a net short position (about 20% of my total portfolio) on various asset classes.

Nasdaq now up 23% off its low. Congratulations, we now have the average bear market rally. Across 26 bear market rallies from 1929-1932 and 2000-2002, the average is 23%. After 2000, there were two 40%+ bear market rallies and one 50%+ rally before the market bottomed.

 

Crypto Market Highlights

Trading Signals ETHUSD 180822

Took a small short trade on Ethereum (ETHUSD) near the $2000 round number resistance.

Not sure how far it can go, and it might find support at the 20-EMA, so this is most likely a very short-term swing trade.

 

Trading Signals ETHUSD 120822

Taking profits on my Ethereum (ETHUSD) longs, since prices have run up quite a bit.

In this current choppy environment, it is better to go for many small wins than one big win.
