Bitcoin price achieved a new high for this year, last week. The correction over the weekend looked to be a potential reversal of the uptrend, but after a relatively shallow retracement the uptrend appears to have resumed.
Time of analysis: 16h22 UTC
From the analysis pages of xbt.social, earlier today:
Judging by previous corrections during this advance, once price climbs to the previous high advance just continues. It remains odd that the correction was not to a deeper MA, such as the red 200MA but that move remains outstanding till later, no doubt.
Support was found out the 100MA and the move retraced 50% of the last wave up, so the correction is “standard” and advance from current levels is not likely a market trick.
The relentless advance appears to have resumed.
Price must get closer to the 20MA for us to open positions – there is strong divergence in the 1hr chart – and the next price dip could be our opportunity.
The 1hr BTCC chart (above) shows a great similarity to a previous correction and buying pressure has been strong since yesterday.

The CNY exchange charts are leading this advance. The BTCC (BTC-China) chart is giving a convenient price pattern and advance above 2250 CNY will signal additional upside. Traders should be mindful that price seeks to return to the 20MA (green) periodically.
