Bitcoin price has not made any significant move during quiet Saturday trade. The start of day in the US may change that, but for now it looks like continuing inaction will be the prospect.

Bitstamp 1-Hour Candle Chart
From the analysis pages of xbt.social, earlier today:
A quiet day in the bitcoin price chart as price sticks close to the 200-hour moving average.
Low volume trade keeps price within the constraints of the converging support near $449 (Bitstamp) and the horizontal resistance zone between $462 and $470.
The recommendation remains that traders and investors wait for price to establish above the red resistance zone before committing to buy positions. Similarly, if price breaks below the rising trendline, there may be an opportunity to buy bitcoin at support levels near $425 or $415.
Although the 1-day and 1-week charts, explored yesterday, imply a risk of decline (or a sharp correction), there is not yet any obvious clue of when such a downward price move may set in.
Bitcoin price continues sideways within a narrowing range. Pivots for a directional price move are $470 (Bitstamp) to the upside, and $449 to the downside. For now we can only wait for the market to move price beyond either of these S&R barriers.
