Can Cyclical Tools Predict The Bottom?
In this episode of NewsBTC’s daily technical analysis videos, we examine major Bitcoin price troughs with Hurst Cycle Theory and cyclical tools to consider if the bottom could be in and if another bubble is coming.
Take a look at the video below:

Bitcoin Cyclical Behavior Analyzed
To assist with the visual analysis, each Bitcoin halving has been included. The halving has been a widely-discussed driver of internal supply and demand mechanics. We know that Bitcoin bottoms out visually prior to each halving. The log growth curve has also been included for visual assistance.
The next step is to turn on a spectrogram. A spectrogram is a visual heatmap of the spectrum of frequencies of a signal as it varies with time. The more green heat, the stronger the bullish intensity. In contrast, the more purple heat on the map, the stronger the bearish intensity is and that’s where we would look for a cyclical bottom. Within each purple zone we would find our cyclical trough for dominant cycle phasing.

Why This Bear Market Felt So Extreme
The next step would be to confirm the dominant cycle by phasing out any harmonics. According to Hurst Cycle Theory, harmonics in cycles come in twos and threes. Essentially, from each major trough to trough, there should be one to two mid-cycle dips.
Not only does defining the mid-cycle harmonics assist in confirming dominant cycle phasing, but it does also help prove Hurst cycle theory to be accurate. Notice that cyclical troughs tend to bottom in tandem, while the principle of summation explains why the recent selloff felt so long and extreme – it was the sum of a larger composite wave and a smaller harmonic wave combined.
Why BTC Is Gearing Up For Another Bubble Cycle
The final step is completing the phasing. For added confirmation, the Fisher Transform is used, which helps to pinpoint precise turning points in markets, as well as the Stochastic RSI. In this system, the Fisher Transform highlights the potential turning point, while the Stoch RSI rising from oversold levels confirms the new bull run.
