From the analysis pages of xbt.social, earlier today:
Exactly the sequnce of events we wanted to see in the chart.
Price is advancing above $600 and 4hr MACD (just above price) confirms the advancing move as it pushes above zero and its signal line.
It’s hard to conceive how the market will now reverse trend into decline. The declining scenarios mentioned during the past two weeks are negated by the massive volume required to push price $25 higher in a single candle. Ongoing advance is the most probable outcome, so we follow the whales. xbt.social opened a buy position at $593 (Bitstamp) earlier today.
Traders need a stop loss between $600 and the 1hr 200MA or 4hr 200MA near $575. A quarter size position allows a $20 stop-loss distance
