Let us analyze the BTC movement using the Elliott Wave theory on the one-hour chart.
On the chart, we see that BTC/USD formed the initial part of a new downward correction pattern, which can take the form of a double zigzag W-X-Y.
At the time of writing the article, the first part, that is sub-wave W, was fully completed and took the form of a simple zigzag [A]-[B]-[C]. Bullish wave X is under formation. The internal structure of wave X points to a double zigzag [W]-[X]-[Y]. The first two parts of sub-waves [W]-[X] seem to be completed, and the last sub-wave [Y] is still under formation.
It is assumed that wave [Y] may take the form of a double zigzag (W)-(X)-(Y). The wave may end at 41,675.00. At this level, the length of wave [Y] is likely to be equal to the length of wave [W].
Under the current conditions, it is possible to consider opening buy positions in order to take profit at the end of wave X.
Trading recommendations: Buy at 38,981.00, place take profit at 41,675.00.
