Bitcoin continues to push against the 200 day moving average and finding resistance at this key level. The one remaining positive for the bulls is the price remains well above the 50 day moving average and day after day is making higher lows. However, there have also been back to back lower highs indicating that the price is in a volatility squeeze. Likely, this will result in a large movement out of this range.
If the price can reclaim the 200 day MA and flip resistance into support it would be likely that buyers would rush back into the market. Until then eyes remain on the 50 day MA to act as the next support. If this level is lost this could be a signal to short BTC expecting continuing downside into the end of the year.
Violence broke out in Israel over the weekend and the price of oil and gold reacted with upwards price movement at the US futures open. Bitcoin’s narrative as digital gold was somewhat weakened by declining in price in response to the events. That being said, relative to the recent range, Bitcoin’s price has not had a significant response to this news compared to oil and gold that saw a gap in the futures prices.
