Bitcoin price has decreased in range and volatility as the XT cult and bitcoin sceptics continue selling hopelessly into the support floor. Without institutional support, the move cannot pull to lower lows. We have to wait for the doldrums to subside on their own.

From the analysis pages of xbt.social, earlier today:
Little change in price action and our outlook has now shifted from an expectation of a bounce into advance the support floor, to one of gradual decline through support.
Support levels correspond to the Fib lines in the chart above: $220 (breached), $215, $210, $205 and $200.
A Fib extension from the the recent top highlights $205 as a likely target, although this may not be the reversal point. Below $200 there is still $187 and $160.
Until there is a clear price direction evident, it is best to remain out of the market because it is difficult to know at which support level the market might reverse strongly
Patience here, there is nothing to trade safely or profitably in the bitcoin chart at this moment.

There is little to say about price action today. It is both flat and boring and the only prompt we have to action will be when we see a move leaving the $220-$236 range. For now it appears that a move lower, to $205 (Bitstamp) is underway but price may reverse sooner or spike below, trigger strong buy orders and return above $200. An unpredictable move is underway.
