Bitcoin price continues to struggle to regain the bullish momentum it had during the parabolic climb above $10,000, but bears have also been unable to push the price of the leading crypto asset by market cap any lower, resulting in an impasse that is playing out in recent price action.
The indecision may have been easily predicted, using Gann theory – the practice of using mathematics, geometry, and time to predict price movements in stocks and other financial assets – according to one analyst’s “Gann chart.” The same chart also appears to suggest that Bitcoin price is at a critical “do or die” moment that will define the months to come.
Gann Charts Could Help Predict Bitcoin Price Targets, Timing, and More
In the early 1900s, long before digital currencies, trading bots, online trading, or advanced charting software, there was a legendary trader named William Delbert Gann. Gann used unorthodox techniques such as astrology, moon phases, key dates, and more, combined with ancient mathematics centered around geometry and the golden ratio.
Gann was a polarizing figure, going down in history books as both a crook who peddled hoax-like theories that had little merit and as the greatest trader to ever live. Today, Gann’s theories are just as controversial, but still used by believers with success.
