Technical Analysis or Pulling Numbers from Thin Air
There are many other traders and analysts who discuss bitcoin regularly and have shared their cryptocurrency market prognosis to tens and hundreds of thousands of followers. A few of the aforementioned bitcoin traders speak about the long term game, but most of them speak about the short term cycles and swings more regularly.
The projections many of these traders throw out are based on sophisticated technical analysis, charts, signals, indicators, and theories as well. Lots of times people take seasoned crypto traders, researchers, and analysts more seriously than Wall Street executives, venture capitalists, and traditional financiers pulling numbers out of thin air. Although, there are plenty of skeptics who believe technical analysis (TA) is no different than pulling numbers from thin air or leveraging tarot cards.
