From the analysis pages of xbt.social, earlier today:

As the OKCoin September futures contract opened today, price surged to near $616 in that chart. Although it was not a new futures high, it does speak of the bullish sentiment of traders with regards to the late-July reward-halving event.

The other exchange charts remained subdued – most of them putting in a lower high for the day.

We now keep an eye on price action in relation to the 1-hour 200MA (red). If trade establishes below this moving average it will confirm a short-term bearish phase, especially if the green 20MA crosses below the 200MA.

For every move up, eventually, there must be a price correction. Downside targets include $540 and $500.

Summary

The bitcoin price chart is rolling over and chart technicals show that we can expect a corrective decline prior to the next major advancing push of this year. Downside targets include $540 and $500, but (given the positive mood and strong fundamentals) a large decline is not expected. Price may still fling out to the upside in buying fake-outs, but rather than anticipate the move down, let the market and moving averages show the way.
