Bloomberg Issues Bitcoin (BTC) Warning, Plus Ethereum, Ripple and XRP, Litecoin, Stellar, Tron
A technical indicator designed to detect market reversals is flashing its first sell in more than a month.
According to the GTI VERA Convergence Divergence indicator, the price of Bitcoin will likely continue to move lower in the short term, reports Bloomberg. The gauge utilizes typical Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) and attempts to identify increased volatility and delete excess noise.
Meanwhile, veteran trader Peter Brandt sent out a viral tweet identifying a Doji top in Bitcoin’s weekly chart, which could signal the start of a significant market correction. The Doji is a candlestick pattern that’s used to identify potential market reversals based on prior price action.

However, Brandt later clarified that further analysis shows a Doji pattern has not been confirmed across all crypto exchanges.
Most major exchanges did not have a doji top -- only Bitstamp that I can find which is not a credible exchange IMO. Remains to be seen out market will resolve short term, but some broader volatility most likely.— Peter Brandt (@PeterLBrandt) June 4, 2019
