Ethereum / Breaking News / Bitcoin / Analytics

Bitcoin (BTC/USD) was still trying to recover early in today’s Asian session as the pair remained quite volatile following a rapid depreciation during yesterday’s European session that saw traders knock the pair as low as the 8465.00 area after trading as high as the 9194.99 area during yesterday’s Asian session.  Traders had been awaiting clues that the pair may be emerging from the sideways trading pattern that it has experienced over the past couple of days, with bids generally keeping the pair above the 8765 level and offers generally keeping the pair below the 9015 level.  Below current market activity, the 8784 area had provided some technical support over the past couple of days, an important level that represents the 23.6% retracement of the move from 8045.07 to 9013.00

Above current market activity, price activity continues to be influenced by technical levels related to the depreciation from the 10540.49 area in late October, a recent relative high from which levels such as the 9010 and 9150 areas have gained technical significance as they represent downside price objectives from that level.  The 9010 area has recently turned into technical resistance, limiting the pair’s recent movements above the psychologically-important 9000 figure.  Likewise, the recent relative low around the 6430 area likely has resulted in selling pressure between the 9033 and 9071 levels and another recent low around the 7963.25 likely has resulted in selling pressure between the 9011 and 9047 areas.

Price activity is nearest the 50-bar MA (4-hourly) at 8,560.96 and the 200-bar MA (Hourly) at 8,559.92.

Technical Support is expected around 8338.78/ 7662.03/ 7568.45 with Stops expected below.

Technical Resistance is expected around 9194.99/ 9303.07/ 9593.07 with Stops expected above.              

On 4-Hourly chart, SlowK is Bearishly below SlowD while MACD is Bearishly below MACDAverage.

On 60-minute chart, SlowK is Bearishly below SlowD while MACD is Bearishly below MACDAverage.
