Bitcoin: USD/BTC (BTC=X) Continues Squeeze to $4500
Bitcoin (BTC/USD) continues its path to higher highs as crypto bulls show no signs of exhaustion. Less than 48 hours ago BTCUSD was still trading at $3250.
In what seems like no time at all bitcoin is back to its old ways again slicing through $3750 resistance, currently trading $4000, a +25.81% increase since its previous lows last week.
Could this be it? Could this be the price rally that determines the final BTC bottom?
There are still some ways to go before BTC/USD can go back to $4500-$5000, but one thing is for sure, bitcoin bears have become complacent and, at least for now, it is their turn to feel the pain.

A long upper shadow occurred. This is typically a bearish signal (particularly when it occurs near a high price level, at resistance level, or when the security is overbought).
Three white candles occurred in the last three days. Although these candles were not big enough to create three white soldiers, the steady upward pattern is bullish.
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.
One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 62.8760. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a buy 3 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 46.77. 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 buy 3 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 166.This is an overbought reading. However, a signal isn’t generated until the indicator crosses below 100. The last signal was a buy 5 period(s) ago.
The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a buy 20 period(s) ago.
