The Hourly View for BTC

Last Updated September 9, 2021, 18:16 GMT

Regarding the trend, note that the strongest trend exists on the 20 hour timeframe. Of note is that the 50 hour changed directions on BTC; it is now pointing down. The moving averages on the hourly timeframe suggest a choppiness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a mixed alignment — meaning the trend across timeframes is inconsistent, indicating a potential opportunity for rangebound traders.

  • From blockchainchick:

    How’s everyone doing? Just an encouragement for people to keep a level head during crashes like we just had. Bitcoin will do this several times in a bull. Yes we are still in a bull run. Learn to anticipate these types of pullbacks.

  • From CryptoWhale:

    #Bitcoin has been in a bear market ever since topping out at $64,000 in April. The rise we’ve seen these past few weeks was a dead cat bounce. It will all be reversed soon. Few understand this.

  • From fozmeadows:

    I am crying laughing at these bitcoin libertarians and their fucking ship, like. They knew they wanted SeaPods IN THE SHAPE OF THE BITCOIN B, but hadn’t figured out how to have more than one (1) kitchen for 2000 people. Absolutely peak techbro nonsense.
