Bitcoin Price Advancing Persistently But With Difficulty

Yesterday’s 4-hour chart reversal signal had seen price turn down, but only briefly. The declining wave did not make a new local low and reverse divergence has forced price to the upside again. Technical analysis finds this advancing wave has little hope of making headway.

From the analysis pages of, earlier today:

Here in the 1-hour chart, price has returned to the level of the green 20MA. The MAs are apparently forming a sell signal and we wait to see when price will turn down and what downside target price will achieve. The persistence of the advance – though weak – is notable.

Before turning back down price looks to have another new high to make – the downward sloping price wave currently tracing the path of the green 20MA is zigzagging in a corrective manner and should see another push higher.

The sluggish price action makes sideways meandering likely, but if decline takes hold, its obvious targets are the red 200MA ($227 / 1410 CNY) and the previous low at $220 / 1370 CNY.

s68k pulls ahead of the pack but remains within earshot of the mouse clicks of the Neolystic1. KLajosK is now in 3rd place and only 0.3% away from the 30% profit mark that has eluded most traders in this round.

Ripping through the quiet market, Arzole cuts himself some cheese on the leaderboard – with two trades like winds passing in the night. His name seems familiar… but I can’t quite place it – is it a famous trader or a politician, perhaps?

Given the slowing pace of price action during the past week, it is unclear if the decline implied by the chart technicals will be strong. As seen, yesterday, in the 4-hour chart, the two faster 4-hour stochastics will seek to return to their lower extreme before the move down could be considered complete. It may happen quickly or it may take a week or more – quicker being preferable, so we may look for an opportunity to trade long with the next wave up.
