The Hourly View for BTC

Last Updated September 8, 2021, 00:016 GMT

At the moment, Bitcoin’s price is down $-94.34 (-0.2%) from the hour prior. This is a reversal of the price action on the previous hour, in which price moved up. As for the trend on the hourly timeframe, we see the clearest trend on the 20 hour timeframe. Price action traders may also wish to note that we see a pin bar candlestick pattern on Bitcoin. Given that we see downtrend on the 20 hourly candle timeframe, and that such candlestick patterns often denote reversals, this may be worth noting. 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.

Overheard on Twitter

Over on Twitter, here were the top tweets about Bitcoin:

  • From PeterSchiff:

    The idea that #Bitcoin whales deliberately tank the market to shake out the little guys to get their coins is nonsense. The whales don’t want the minnows to sell, they want them holding and hoping and buying the dip. The whales want out. They’re fishing for dollars, not Bitcoin.

  • From cryptomanran:

    So, on the exact day that El Salvador launches Bitcoin as a legal tender against the wishes of the World Bank and IMF , mysteriously every single major exchange goes down at the same time as the price crashes by 20%…

  • From tomskiweb:
