Bitcoin price is meandering in a narrow trading range near its January lows. There are few helpful technical signals in the current chart, but a support level may be forming around $380 and 2500 CNY.

From the analysis pages of xbt.social, earlier today:
Trade is holding price in a narrow range after last week’s low. What the market plans to do with price next is unclear. There is no clear technical indication, nor does the price pattern give any clue as to whether the market wants to trade price lower into the $300s or make the short ascent to $400 and establish a support base.
In the OKCoin 3Month futures chart, the recent low was effectively a double-bottom to the equivalent low made during mid-January. It may just turn out that the level of this double-bottom establishes a strong support level from where the next wave of advance can progress.
Bitcoin price is noodling along near its January lows. Before we can make any assumption about whether a low has been struck or not, we would need to see price retest the apparent support level and form the customary bitcoin price base that precedes advance.
