A Golden Cross is when the 50 day Simple Moving Average of an asset crosses over the 200 day SMA. A Death Cross is when the 50 day crosses under the 200.
A section focused on technical analysis. Any article that looks at charts or talks about how to look at charts can be found here.
Please note we don’t do price targets on this site, we do educational content focused on learning about the basics of technical analysis.
With that in mind you’ll find two types of content here:
- Discussions about the fundamentals of the technicals and resources. Things like “what is technical analysis,” “how to use Trading View,” and “how to use moving averages in crypto.”
- Educational and informational looks at historic, current, and potential crypto charts (sometimes compared to non-crypto charts). So things like “a comparison of 2014 and 2018,” or comparing the tech bubble to the crypto bubble,” or “bulls need to ward off this death cross or it won’t be a good look technically speaking; Let’s take a look at what death crosses mean.”
NOTE: This content is meant to be informational and educational; it is not investing advice. That said, here is some free life advice, as a general rule of thumb don’t make important financial decisions based on information you find on the internet… 🤓
