Bitcoin Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that Bitcoin is now close to its 100 day moving averages, which may act as price barrier for the asset. Volatility for Bitcoin has exploded over the past two weeks relative to the past 30 days, which technical traders will want to note. The clearest trend exists on the 14 day timeframe, which shows price moving up over that time. It should be noted, though, that a trend in the opposite direction, going down, exists on the 90 day timeframe. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 30 days Bitcoin’s price has gone up 16 them.
