Bitstamp 4-Hour Candle Chart
From the analysis pages of xbt.social, earlier today:
Consolidation is drawing to an inevitable close as the 4hr 200MA descends into the area of price action.
To the upside we have Fib extension targets all the way up to long-term resistance at $680. Likely pitstops for reaction wait at $600, $610 and $630 (Bitstamp).
For the advancing scenario to open we need to see price advance above the 4hr 200MA (red). The 200MA is critical at every timeframe, and intermediate trend is signaled by price’s position relative to this average. Why? No-one knows, it’s just like that.
The imminent breakout is confirmed by many exchange charts entering a “scribbling” phase whereby price candles begin resembling a pencil drawing technique called “hatching” at the 15min and 5min timeframes. Dense candle patterns as opposed to clean distinct wave patterns.
