Bitcoin price has been maintaining a narrow trading zone during the past four days. This condition usually heralds a strong move initiated by a surge. Which way will the surge break? Today’s brief analysis update shows there is no agreement among traders.
From the analysis pages of xbt.social, earlier today:
Slow progress. It would appear that price is either setting up for the advance, to commence in hours, or that price is only, now, ending the base wave and preparing for a last test of the lows.
The longer-term consolidation below $300 may wind a wide price path before returning to the current price level. An advance, here, faces tough resistance to the upside, but that is always the challenge after a prolonged decline.
There is still risk that price may drop through $232 like a stone and head for targets at $230, $225 and $215 to complete a corrective wave near the consolidation lows.
In a rare turn-out, xbt.social members fail to reach consensus about which direction to trade:
In the 24 hours since our last look at the leaderboard, Fijibound has kept the No.1 place by holding his cash position. Outlander has climbed to No.2 by skillfully trading the small price waves that unfolded in the interim and displaces Camille.
The price move that is about to unfold in the coming hours promises to paint some long candles in the chart. Their color remains to be seen, and only the traders who correctly anticipate green or red will remain on the leaderboard.
Bitcoin price continues trading sideways. A watershed approaches and the market is likely to trade price below $230 or above $240 once the tipping point arrives.
