As we went to press less than a week later, Bitcoin was already crashing. Such is the life of a magazine journalist trying to keep up with digital technology.u003c/p>u003cp>u003c!-- piano selector -->u003c/p>u003cdiv class="paywall"> u003cp>Today Bitcoin is hovering around $55,000, after breaking $60,000 for the first time over the weekend. But for all the seemingly capricious moves that Bitcoin makes—sometimes u003ca href="https://fortune.com/2020/06/14/bitcoin-stock-market-correlation-gold-investor-survey-fidelity/">it goes up when stocks dou003c/a> but sometimes it goes down; sometimes people trade it u003ca href="https://fortune.com/2021/02/23/bitcoin-tesla-bulls-run-for-cover/">the way they trade Teslau003c/a> but sometimes they trade it u003ca href="https://fortune.com/2021/01/27/forget-bitcoin-gamestop-daytrader-rally-hedge-funds/">the way they trade GameStopu003c/a>—there is one reliable signal for whether it’s going up or down.u003c/p> u003cp>It’s a pattern as old as time: the Fibonacci sequence—as central to mathematics as it is to nature, dictating the way seashells spiral and the way petals grow on a flower—can also help predict the price of Bitcoin.u003c/p> u003cp>Fibonacci works likes this: Each new number in the sequence is the sum of the two preceding figures. Starting with 0, it goes 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, and so on. (The sequence derives from a thought experiment about u003ca href="https://www.britannica.com/biography/Fibonacci">rabbit breedingu003c/a> from 12th century Italian mathematician Leonardo Pisano, a.k.a. Fibonacci.)u003c/p> u003cp>JC Parets, an expert in technical analysis of markets who for the last decade has also run a research service called All Star Charts, has found a way to u003ca href="https://allstarcharts.com/next-targets-bitcoin/">apply this pattern to Bitcoinu003c/a>.u003c/p> u003cp>Back in 2017, Parets first blew my mind with this revelation when he correctly u003ca href="https://fortune.com/2017/10/21/bitcoin-price-chart/">predicted that Bitcoin would surpass $6,500u003c/a>, then go on to rise above $7,400 (a bullish trend that kept on going at the time).u003c/p> u003cp>Parets figured this out by breaking down Bitcoin’s price movements into segments. After a crash, if the price recovered nearly 62%, then went on to regain 100% of its old high, Bitcoin was likely to bounce further, 162% off the low. After that, if Bitcoin didn’t fall back to the previous level, it was likely to rise to nearly 262% from the last bottom (because 262 is the sum of the previous two percentage figures: 100+162=262).u003c/p> u003cp>This led Parets to predict in mid-December, when Bitcoin was trading just below $20,000, that Bitcoin $30,000 was nigh; it hit $30,000 in the early days of 2021. His next prediction was about $45,000, which Bitcoin surpassed on Feb. 8.u003c/p> u003cp>Now, because Bitcoin is holding above that level, Parets is targeting $70,000 next.u003c/p> u003cp>If the math is hard to follow, Parets’s chart sketches it out:u003c/p> u003cfigure class="wp-block-image size-large">u003cimg data-src="https://content.fortune.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/03/Screen-Shot-2021-03-17-at-10.39.15-AM.png?w=1024" alt="" class="lazyload wp-image-2967402"/>u003c/figure> u003cp>It's not exactly clear why this pattern works so well. At its root, technical analysis is intended to measure and predict shorter-term market sentiment, in contrast to fundamental analysis focused on long-term underlying value. And Parets' Fibonacci pattern certainly echoes the boom-and-bust cycle of the crypto market.u003c/p> u003cp>Bitcoin also bounces around between its big moves, and may hover above or below the key thresholds in the meantime. (“Think of it like a mattress,” Parets says. “Supporting and resistance levels have some give to [them].”) But as long as Bitcoin stays above $45,000, he thinks there’s reason to be bullish.u003c/p> u003cp>Watch out, though, if things turn the other way: “A break that holds below $45,000 could send it back towards $30,000 or lower,” Parets adds.u003c/p> u003cp>For those considering whether it’s a good time to buy Bitcoin, the Fibonacci sequence can be useful; Parets says of his clients alone, several hundred firms include the technique in their investment processes—though they likely combine Fibonacci with other indicators and strategies “to come up with a favorable risk vs. reward proposition,” he explains.u003c/p> u003cp>With an asset as unique and volatile as Bitcoin, any guidance helps.u003c/p> u003cp>Says Parets, “I don't know how anyone looks at these assets without those tools.”u003c/p> u003cp>***u003c/p> u003cp>With this missive, I bid u003cem>The Ledgeru003c/em> a bittersweet goodbye. I am leaving u003cem>Fortuneu003c/em> at the end of the month to be a features writer at u003cem>New Yorku003c/em> magazine, where I'll be covering business, technology, Wall Street, and yes, cryptocurrency. u003c/p> u003cp>Creating u003cem>The Ledger u003c/em>with Robert and Jeff more than three-and-a-half years ago and building it—together with the newer addition to the family, David—into what you see and read today has been one of the great privileges of my career to date.u003c/p> u003cp>When we started this back in 2017, we didn't exactly predict that u003ca href="https://fortune.com/2021/02/08/bitcoin-price-tesla-purchase-elon-musk-crypto/">Tesla would buy Bitcoinu003c/a> or that u003ca href="https://fortune.com/2020/11/02/paypal-cryptocurrency-bitcoin-venmo/">PayPal would start trading itu003c/a>, but we figured something like that was inevitable, and here we are. We planted a flag at u003cem>Fortuneu003c/em> in the world of cryptocurrency that our editors generously embraced—even over their own skepticism at the time—and which has flourished into so much more.u003c/p> u003cp>As I leave u003cem>The Ledger u003c/em>in Robert and David's talented hands, I also look forward to reading and watching where they (along with a growing team) take it from

Woodbury’s insightful and somewhat disturbing argument is that a broad drop in people’s sense of agency and independence has pushed our deep need for belonging towards digital communities.
