Bitcoin Price Flying The Envelope

Bitcoin price continues correcting as the prospect of advance dawns on the market. The general hesitancy to join trend is understandable given this chart’s perverse tendency to fake-out on apparent trending moves. The melodrama of decline in the Chinese exchanges has proven to be just that – every time. They cannot sell lower because there is nothing for the bears down there.

Bitstamp 4-Hour Candle Chart

From the analysis pages of, earlier today:

Objective conditions continue to support a view of continuing advance.

Price advances above 1hr, 4hr, 1day, 3day and 1week 20MAs.

The potential reversal at $630 looms but seems less likely as 1day MACD crosses above its zero line at the time of writing. Yet, the situation remains: price advance is constrained by the $630 level and the MACD cross-over could happen but advance delayed until Sunday or Monday.

Our cut and dry outlook is that price should advance toward $680, but that it may perversely reverse at the cross-over. Our only rational response is to close positions if price declines below $612 (Bitstamp).


After an ambiguous start in some exchange charts, the bitcoin price advance has gathered momentum. Ongoing correction does not yet represent a trend reversal and traders are encouraged to look north to $680 (and perhaps higher). The whales have fired several surging volleys to give us hints of their intention.
