Bitcoin Price Technical Analysis for 07/20/2016 – Steady Uptrend

Bitcoin Price Key Highlights

  • Bitcoin price went for a test of the channel support as predicted in an earlier article and a bounce took place.
  • This signals that price could be headed back to the channel resistance to carry on with its uptrend.
  • A fresh round of risk aversion could keep bitcoin in demand but technical indicators are giving mixed signals.

Bitcoin price found support at the bottom of its ascending channel and looks prime for another test of resistance.

Technical Indicators Signals

The 100 SMA is above the 200 SMA so the path of least resistance is to the upside. This suggests that bitcoin price might climb to the top of the channel at $690-700 or at least until the previous highs closer to $680.
