Bitcoin (BTC/USD) retreated lower to the 8208.99 level early in today’s Asian session after trading as high as the 8310.57 level during yesterday’s North American session.  Buying pressure became active during yesterday’s Asian session when traders lifted the pair from the 7762.35 area, preventing BTC/USD from then testing the 7701 area that it tested twice in late September.  Yesterday’s buying activity continued well into yesterday’s European session, lifting BTC/USD as high as the 8060.53 area, right around a previous relative low related to a prior move higher to the 13878.80 area.

BTC/USD is again approaching its 50-bar MA (4-hourly) and recently traded between its 50-bar MA (hourly) and 100-bar MA (hourly). Stops were elected above the 7944.70 area during the move higher, representing the 23.6% retracement of the 8535.00 – 7762.35 range, with additional Stops triggered above the 8019.59 area, representing the 61.8% retracement of the 7701.00 – 8535.00 range.  Above current market activity, the 8340.51 and 8432.25 areas represent upside price objectives. Some traders also anticipate selling pressure around the 8474.00 level.
