Bitcoin News

Bitcoin’s price action as of late has done little to offer investors with insights into its near-term outlook.

Its price has mainly been oscillating between highs of $11,000 and lows of $10,000, with each attempt to break out of this tight trading range resulting in the cryptocurrency seeing massive inflows of selling pressure that force it lower.

Last week, buyers pushed BTC as high as $11,200 during a swift upwards move. The rejection here kicked off a prolonged consolidation phase, and it has been struggling to regain its momentum ever since.

There is one indicator, however, that seems to indicate that upside is imminent for the benchmark cryptocurrency.

Because a good part of its market dynamic is dependent on miners, there is one indicator that indicates BTC could be on the cusp of seeing significant upside in the days and weeks ahead.

That being said, macro uncertainty could reduce the power that miners have over Bitcoin’s market dynamic and potentially derail the positive outlook being offered by the aforementioned indicator.

Momentum Indicators

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.

Stochastic Oscillator

One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 39.7068. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a buy 1 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 48.93. 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 49 period(s) ago.

Commodity Channel Index (CCI)

The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is 11. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a sell 5 period(s) ago.

MACD

The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a sell 2 period(s) ago.
