Bitcoin: USD/BTC (BTC=X) struggling to break the $8,300
Thanks to Bitcoin’s massive market dominance, when it falls, other coins tend to follow suit.
Unfortunately for some of the other big coins, such as Ripple (XRP), Ethereum (ETH), and Bitcoin Cash (BCH), which have experienced sharp corrections, they, unlike BTC, haven’t enjoyed recent bullish runs to cushion the fall, so to speak.
Although Bitcoin hasn’t experienced anything the kind of gains it achieved during the tail-end of 2017 of late, it did, over the past month or so, surge from around $6,000 (where it was stuck for some time), to over $8,000.
However, Bitcoin seems bearish once again, routinely struggling to keep its head above the $8,000 psychological watermark.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Sideways.
Note: this chart shows extraordinary price action to the upside.
By the way, prices are vulnerable to a correction towards 7,524.52.
The projected upper bound is: 8,213.01.
The projected lower bound is: 6,912.29.
The projected closing price is: 7,562.65.
A black body occurred (because prices closed lower than they opened).
During the past 10 bars, there have been 4 white candles and 5 black candles for a net of 1 black candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 26 white candles and 23 black candles for a net of 3 white candles.
Three black candles occurred in the last three days. Although these candles were not big enough to create three black crows, the steady downward pattern is bearish.
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 25.5760. 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 52.56. 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 1 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 -52. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a sell 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 sell 0 period(s) ago.

This is a bearish divergence.
