Bitcoin Technical Analysis

Notably, Bitcoin crossed below its 100 day moving average yesterday. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 90 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving up. Traders will also want to note, though, that a counter trend — meaning a trend going down — can be seen on the 30 day timeframe. So if you expect the primary trend to resume, the counter trend may be providing an opportunity to buy dips. For additional context, note that price has gone down 6 out of the past 10 days.

    Every lifetime is strictly finite. By trading our time, we gain the ability to accomplish greater results with the same efforts.Money is the tool that best mediates the trading of time.#Bitcoin is the only money that exhibits perfect fidelity to the absolute scarcity of time.

  • From Erikcason:

    There was somebody (or bodies) out in the world who is/was Satoshi Nakamoto.That person not only had the courage to create and release Bitcoin, but they have the extraordinary magnanimity to do it anonymously and not for profit. I feel thankful that such a person has existed
