Not at all really, I work as an Analyst tthough so I'm bias. If equities were solely based on earnings the market would be a lot easier to figure out...but it's not.
Example, it’s all (primarily) analysis expectations that move the market: 3 or 4 quarters ago Apple's earning were up 40ish percent period over period, turnover was at a record high but the stock sold off 5-10% or so. Why? Because analysts and the street put unobtainable earnings estimates out, that would never be beat/reached. It happens every earning season-very exciting times for people like me.
Another example about cash flows: Let’s look at Eagle shipping. They still have negative free cash flow / operating cash flow (I believe). Their stock has gone up 30ish% in the last month. Why...because it looks like their chapter XI exit preceding are continuing to be successful. Yes earnings mean a lot in the market, but the number sthemselves aren’t the only deciding factor.
There is an art/science to reading charts too. What I was looking for was if someone has produced Bitcoin charts that consist of money flow in and out, volumes, moving averages (which would be amazing if someone did the work)...etc. You can make very good productions just by viewing 6-12 month charts; even basic ones for that matter, coupled with recent news can help you make predictions.
I'm not looking to invest, I’d rather trade...I was looking to make a put option (or anything similar) right now. But i have no idea if the secondary market for that type of stuff exists.
