Bitcoin: USD/BTC (BTC=X) positive finish 

The Bitcoin price (BTC/USD) has returned above the $6,500 mark following a positive finish to an otherwise poor Wednesday session.

The original cryptocurrency had a largely disappointing session yesterday, as its price dropped below the $6,500 level for the first time in six days during the morning hours. The digital currency experienced a sharp increase in the early afternoon, with its price jumping to an intraday high of $6,571.46, but this turned out to be just a temporary spike, as the coin swiftly returned to sub-$6,500 levels. Still, Bitcoin managed to recuperate in the latter part of the session, which allowed it to mitigate its losses and finish the day on a somewhat positive note. The coin closed the session at $6,502.59, down from its opening level of $6,553.86.

Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.

The projected upper bound is: 7,029.94.

The projected lower bound is: 6,056.17.

The projected closing price is: 6,543.06.

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 30.3273. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a sell 10 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 49.16. 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 56 period(s) ago.

Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
