Bitcoin Outlook

Bitcoin’s price action has undergone extreme tightening over the past few days as the markets have become extremely indecisive. Three technical trends indicate that the cryptocurrency is primed to undergo a strong breakout, a crypto trader said. They are as follows:

  • Bitcoin is in a symmetrical triangle formation, and it has reached the apex of the triangle. This suggests that it will soon see a strong breakout.
  • Bitcoin’s market volume is declining, suggesting a breakout will happen soon.
  • The width of the one-hour Bollinger Bands is getting tighter.

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 38.2048. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a sell 6 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 48.87. 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 59 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 19. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a sell 15 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 1 period(s) ago.
