Bitcoin

Bitcoin (BTC/USD) traded sideways early in today’s Asian session as the pair reached the 7975.80 area and was supported around the 7833.64 area, having calmly drifted lower from Friday’s high print of 8134.29. BTC/USD continues to exhibit an inability to gain much traction at or above the 8062.27 area, representing the 38.2% retracement of the move from 9090.00 to 7427.00. This signifies the importance of this range, and also explains why the pair did not get too far below the 7819.47 area during yesterday’s North American session, representing the 23.6% retracement of the same range.

The 200-bar MA (4-hourly) continues to approach price activity from below the current market range, and is currently indicating around the 7746.58 area. There are a couple of additional ranges that chartists are watching. First, the move lower from 8834.00 to 7427.00 is relevant, and price has recently traded between its 50% retracement level at 8130.50 and its 23.6% retracement level at 7759.05. If BTC/USD moves higher, traders will pay close attention to the 8298.53 area, its 61.8% retracement level. Technicians are also paying close attention to the move lower from 9090.00 to 7427.00. Bears are looking to see if a decisive break can be made below the 7819.47 area, and Bulls are looking to see if a move can be sustained above the 8062.27 area.

Price activity is nearest the 200-bar MA (4-hourly) at 7746.58 and the 50-bar MA (Hourly) at 7935.13.

Technical Support is expected around 7343.17/ 7187.64/ 6881.34 with Stops expected below.
