The Hourly View for BTC
Last Updated April 3, 2021, 02:046 GMT
At the moment, BTC’s price is down $-11.69 (-0.02%) from the hour prior. The hourly chart shows that BTC has seen 2 straight down hours. If you’re a trend trader, consider that the strongest clear trend on the hourly chart exists on the 100 hour timeframe. Price action traders may also wish to note that we see a pin bar candlestick pattern on BTC. Given that we see downtrend on the 20 hourly candle timeframe, and that such candlestick patterns often denote reversals, this may be worth noting. Most noteworthy in the world of moving averages on the hourly chart is that the 20 hour moving average has been crossed, so that price is now turning above it. The moving averages on the hourly timeframe suggest a bearishness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a bearish alignment — meaning the shorter duration moving averages are below the longer duration averages, implying a stable downward trend.

Bitcoin Technical Analysis
The first thing we should note is that Bitcoin is now close to its 20 day moving averages, which may act as price barrier for the asset. 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. Or to view things another way, note that out of the past 30 days Bitcoin’s price has gone up 19 them. And for candlestick traders, a special treat: there is a pin bar pattern showing up on the charts as well. Rejoice!
