Bitfinex 15-Minute Chart

From the analysis pages of xbt.social, earlier today:

The move up has been deliberate and there is nothing in the indicators that contradicts price continuing. A previous high had negated the RSI high of Sunday’s high, so price is free to advance – no reverse divergence will obstruct the way until RSI rises above its previous high before that.

Even so, the cross-over, to the downside, of the 200MA over the Fib line at $240 is a major intersection. Ordinarily, price will move toward such a cross-over and then retreat in correction. Given the importance of the confluence of chart features here, this seems the likely outcome, but there is a lot of bullish energy pushing willfully ahead.

Summary

Bitcoin price has advanced from a Monday correctional low of $228 (Bitfinex) and 1407 (BTC-China) to the upper end of the $230 and 1400 CNY range. Rissing above $240 and 1500 CNY is not going to be an easy task as there is a lot of chart resistance in the area directly above. An explosive blast through could do it, but the likely course of price action is a gradual choppy advance into the area, with a reaction at at a magnetic line target at $257 / 1590 CNY.

The Bitfinex depth chart confirms that the journey above $240 is going to be bumpy.
