Bitfinex 15-Minute Chart

The Bitfinex 15-minute chart shows the massive reverse divergence (magenta) that had occurred between price and RSI as a result of the correction. Reverse divergence heralds trend continuation and should the correction put in another low it is of little consequence – trend is, technically, bound to continue advancing.

The advance toward target viewed in a larger 1-Hour timeframe.

Regular divergence can be seen setting in on the MACD indicator (bottom pane). This is to be expected from a strong trend, yet alerts us to be on the lookout for a wave ending and the correction that will set up the final wave for this leg of advance.


Bitcoin price is climbing toward $260 (Bitfinex, BTCe) and $277 (Bitstamp) and 1,550 CNY (BTC-China) in wave action that is typical of this price chart’s advancing mode.

Once the target is hit, we can reassess the next move. An intermediate correction is expected in the meantime – either near the $260 price level or else near $240 prior to the final wave to target. Watch your 15-minute RSI indicator for divergence to anticipate approaching wave tops.

Buying volume is on the up at Bitfinex.
