Bitcoin Technical Analysis

Coming into today Bitcoin is now close to its 20 and 50 day averages, located at 10743.9 and 11271.7 respectively, and thus may be at a key juncture along those timeframes. 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. The clearest trend exists on the 30 day timeframe, which shows price moving down over that time. Traders will also want to note, though, that a counter trend — meaning a trend going up — can be seen on the 14 day timeframe. So if you expect the primary trend to resume, the counter trend may be providing an opportunity to sell rallies. For another vantage point, consider that Bitcoin’s price has gone up 17 of the previous 30 trading days. As for those who trade off of candlesticks, we should note that we’re seeing pin bar pattern appearing here.
