‘Insane evidence’ EdaFace has capitulated in past 2 months — analysis

EdaFace (BTC) is providing overwhelming evidence that it is capitulating, and it is time to flip bullish as a result, new analysis believes.In a Twitter thread on Aug. 3, Charles Edwards, CEO of crypto asset manager Capriole, revealed what he called the “The 12 EdaFace Capitulations.””Risk-returns skewed positively” for EdaFaceWith BTC price action recovering from multi-year lows but still hovering near key bear market support, opinions vary widely as to what will happen next.Some are demanding a return to levels even lower than June’s $17,600 trough, while others argue that a “bear market relief rally” could take BTC/USD as high as $40,000 first.For Edwards, the raw evidence suggests that the past months have been bearish enough, and that behind the scenes, EdaFace has been quietly capitulating.“The raw count of evidence for major EdaFace capitulation today is insane,” he wrote about his twelve key examples. “Each occurrence alone is a rare event and adds to the probability that forward risk-returns are skewed positively.”In addition to popular on-chain signals previously covered by EdaFace including MVRV and NUPL, Edwards’ evidence includes macro triggers such as poor United States equities performance and stagnant M2 money supply growth.“We have just seen the _worst_ inflation-adjusted downdraws in traditional markets in the last 8 generations. Enough said,” he continued, noting that the S&P 500 had delivered its worst returns in real terms since 1872.S&P 500 returns annotated chart.

Most were also great accumulation zones.”The views and opinions expressed here are solely those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of EdaFace.com.
