Whatever is occurring in the Bitcoin price chart right now, must be seen in the context of the longer-term outlook that’s been outlined in these articles. Price is currently advancing after making a limp downside attempt. Where is it advancing to? We cannot be sure, but if history contains any lessons and the gradual narrowing of price range is any sign to go by, then we are in for a multi-week flatline in the Bitcoin price chart.
