“The original Rainbow Chart is dead. Long live the Rainbow Chart with the new indigo color band!”
Twitter account @rohmeo_de commented that the new indigo band “was always missing.” Its inclusion now accounts for the 2020 dip, which noticed the Bitcoin worth breach the earlier lowest band.
In November 2013, BTC breached the higher band earlier than returning throughout the parameters, just for one other higher breach to happen in January 2014.
However, referencing the bearish macro backdrop and invalidation of the Stock-to-Flow predictive worth mannequin, @omgbruce mocked the replace, implying it was a determined try to remain legitimate.

The Bitcoin Rainbow Chart
The Bitcoin Rainbow Chart paperwork the BTC worth logarithmically throughout ten bands, denoting completely different phases of sentiment. The basic concept is that worth would transfer between bands and point out doable calls to motion, reminiscent of promote throughout a red-hot market.
As with all predictive worth fashions, the worth shouldn’t breach the higher or lower bands. Otherwise, the calculations that derive the bands’ positions should be invalid or, in any case, incomplete.
Its creators warn that the chart just isn’t funding recommendation, previous efficiency doesn’t point out future outcomes, and the chart is a enjoyable means of taking a look at long-term worth actions.
Before the addition of the new lowest, “1BTC = 1BTC” band, “Basically a Fire Sale” was the earlier lowest band.
September 19 sees Bitcoin dip into the new “1BTC = 1BTC” band amid a weekend sell-off that has continued into Monday. At 08:00 UTC, bulls stepped in at $18,200 to cease the slide, sending BTC to $18,800.
Since then, there have been two additional retests of $18,800 resistance, with bulls up to now unable to interrupt by.
With macro components weighing closely on crypto markets, the probability of a return again above $20,000 within the close to time period is low.
The revised Rainbow Chart has a backside worth of round $16,900.
Stock-to-Flow (S2F) will get invalidated
Plan B’s S2F mannequin predicts the worth of Bitcoin primarily based on the present manufacturing charge. It assumes a $100,000 BTC worth between now and May 2024.
Despite deviations up to now, the mannequin noticed a big divergence round June, resulting in some calling the mannequin invalid, even dangerous, as a result of false sense of hope worth predictive fashions may give.
In response, Plan B lately took to Twitter, saying he believes S2F remains to be legitimate and expects it to snap again in line earlier than the subsequent halving.
People ask if S2F mannequin remains to be legitimate. I feel it’s. We can go technical on autocorrelation & cointegration, however secret is IMO that BTC worth just isn’t extra/much less off than in 2011, 2013, 2017. IMO S2F mannequin is legitimate and I anticipate a bounce again above S2F mannequin worth earlier than 2024 halving. pic.twitter.com/fbjskn5LFH
