We saw a few days back how bitcoin was likely still in the early stages of its bull market based on its Thermocap multiple.
More on that can be seen here btw:
For those wondering what the heck a thermocap multiple is and how it applies to bitcoin, but don't really want to dive in to that post above, I have a TLDR for you...
Bitcoin's thermocap multiple is currently around 20 while it climbed to at least 40 in every other major bull market peak going back to 2011, which implies that bitcoin still has a lot of run to room before it might be near a top during this cycle.
And now today, we have another metric/indicator telling us that we are likely still a ways off from topping out...
Bitcoin's Relative Volatility Index has a very good track record of indicating when the market may be topping out, or at least getting near a top.
If we look at a chart of bitcoin's 90-day volatility relative to the S&P 500 260-day volatility, we can see that there definitely seems to be a correlation between bitcoin tops and its relative volatility spikes.
Check it out:
Specifically, we can see that huge spikes were seen near/after the tops in 2011, 2013, 2014, and 2017.
Also, we can see extreme lows were evident at the beginning stages of those rallies, which are circled in the above chart.
If history were to repeat, and so far there is nothing leading me to believe that it won't, then we are going to see a huge relative volatility spike as we get near a top.
Based on the chart above, we would are likely going to see the gains start to accelerate and relative volatility spike tremendously from here as move through the rest of this year.
For some context, the above chart implies that we are in Q1 of 2017 right now. Which means we likely have several more quarters of gains before we are anywhere near a top.
When you combine what this chart is showing, along with the thermocap multiple mentioned at the top, combined with all the other post halving patterns and stock to flow models, and there is a very good chance we are no where near a top.
Based on all those models, the top should happen somewhere between August and December of this year, and it should be several multiples of our all time highs seen a few weeks ago.
Stay informed my friends.
