From the analysis pages of, earlier today:

A quick glance at the 15-minute chart, above, shows the narrow price range and flat trading conditions.

One scenario, as discussed during the past week-and-a-half, is that price just keels over and continues downward. Another scenario that we should bear in mind can be found in the historic chart in late-February when price made a similar pattern and then advanced step-wise for almost a hundred dollar distance.

There is not much we can do other than keep the ascending and declining scenarios in mind for now. It does not seem likely that bitcoin is going to make a major move just yet – the market seems confused and pulled this way and that by indecision and uncertainty. We act on a signal when we see one – with more caution than eagerness to get in early. We want to be sure that downside is not just a dip prior to a launch.

Global markets are in a bad way and the warning signs that massive volatility is about to take hold of markets are appearing everywhere. In line with what is outlined in Fiat, Credit, Deflation & Bitcoin, keep your money in cash notes (not in the bank) and the general advice seems to be to get out of any equities, mutual funds and third party investments you may hold.

There is only patient waiting as the large institutional bitcoin players remain hands off and the smaller fish position long and short in a narrow range. Somethow, it seems, this time the impetus to move will come from global markets.
