Bitcoin Technical Analysis

Coming into today the current price of Bitcoin is sitting close to its 20, 50 and 100 day moving averages; moving average crosses often indicate a change in momentum, so this may be worth keeping an eye on. Volatility for Bitcoin has been contracting over the past two weeks relative to volatility over the past month. Whether volatility reverts will be something to watch. Rangebound traders may wish to note that Bitcoin is getting close to its upper bollinger band, which, when coupled with the lack of trend on a 14 day timeframe, may be an opportunity for short sellers. The clearest trend exists on the 30 day timeframe, which shows price moving down over that time. Price action traders in particular will want to note that the 14 day period appears to show price forming a base; this could indicate that a support/resistance level is developing. For additional context, note that price has gone up 9 out of the past 14 days.

    I still can’t believe I have a #Bitcoin full node (indexed nonetheless) that stays in sync entirely w/o the internet via #satellite. People ask me: why? Because I can? Because I want many people to learn how? Because it pushes the boundaries of freedom to new frontiers? Yes
