From the analysis pages of, earlier today:

As anticipated yesterday, price had corrected slightly downwards from its price peak, consolidated toward the 1hr 20MA (green) and then advanced toward $600 (Bitstamp).

However, during the course of the day – and prior to achieving the $600 target – a sell-off pulled price back to the 20MA where it is now consolidating.

The combination of two RSI indications implies that price is likely to complete the advance to $600.

As annotated in magenta, today’s new price high had caused RSI divergence, and the subsequent pullback had caused RSI to reverse diverge to the previous price low. Price made a higher low, but RSI made a lower low on the move. This combination is typically a continuation signal, and with $600 just within reach it seems a likely next move. A similar previous instance is annotated in blue.

How much lower price will correct is uncertain – the stochastics (top) have not yet touched their minimum, although full oscillation often does not occur during advance, as can be seen during the advance in the left of the chart.


Bitcoin price is pushing toward $600 (Bitstamp). The market nervously took proft below $600 earlier today and this may imply a larger bout of profit taking at $600. The rounded, forward leaning slant of the price waves in the chart remains a concern. Perhaps we are only in the initial stages of advance, or perhaps this is only a base wave for advance in August?
