Bitcoin News

  • Bitcoin fell by over 4.5% on Monday as investors bought the safe-haven U.S. dollar, but sold equities, gold and other fiat currencies on renewed coronavirus concerns.
  • The drop set the stage for a continuation of the pullback from August highs above $12,400.
  • Immediate supports are seen at $10,000 and $9,868 (Sept. 8 low).
  • However, while bitcoin may suffer deeper declines in the short-term, the overall bias remains bullish.
  • “We are still above $10,000, only the third time bitcoin has maintained this price level for multiple weeks, and long-term investors are buying bitcoin in increasing amounts,” Gradwell noted.
  • The options market is also showing bullish bias on the longer time frames.
  • The three- and six-month put-call skews remain below zero, a sign that bullish call options are drawing higher demand or prices compared to bearish put options.

However, a signal is not generated until the Oscillator crosses above 20 The last signal was a sell 5 period(s) ago.

Relative Strength Index (RSI)

The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 41.27. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a sell 48 period(s) ago.

The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is -95. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a sell 4 period(s) ago.
