From the analysis pages of, earlier today:

The narrowing of the range of price action continues, and we see the 1-hour 200MA capping the move higher. This is likely to be the theme for now, so it’s best not to bet too heavily in any direction. An option straddle centred around $235 could be the best trading strategy here, but the Bitcoin brokers do not yet offer instruments with this degree of sophistication.

For now price seems to be heading higher. The next update will follow once a directional move leaves the narrow trading range.



The current leaderboard deserves accolades and praise for their achievement and hard work. If they can keep up the prescience of mind, we have some true trading champions in blazing action.

There are Bitcoin traders out there with large and small wallets who are annoyed that they never bought at $50 and $70 two years ago. According to the chart technicals, we will never see that price again. Despite the negative persistence to sell via robot and hard manual labor, $230 and 1400 CNY seem to be the lower consolidation range and from here a lot of money is going to be made. This is the floor, so Bitcoiners should gradually start buying.
