BTC-China 4-Hour Chart
From the analysis pages of xbt.social, earlier today:
The earlier advance caused indicator divergence as it climbed higher. The same dynamic applies as described in yesterday’s analysis: every time an upward correction causes reverse divergence in the indicators, an additional low is possible.
Price is currently touching the support and resistance level around $225 and 1410 CNY (higher of the two magenta lines in the chart). It is not clear whether this is the middle of decline or its ending: strong divergence in the stochastics implies a move higher is required, but this decline seems relentless and may continue lower after a pause.
Bull markets are born on pessimism, grow on skepticism, mature on optimism, and die on euphoria. – John Templeton
A new round of CoinCompetition starts today, in the new weekly format. The market has treated participants to a tumultuous start of the competition.
The May round of CoinCompetition was won by tiapan84, who has been awarded 5 BTC and xbt.social membership. Well done, tiapan84, and good luck to all current contenders.
Once Bitcoin price can break the divergence cycle and advance through upside reverse divergence, we’ll see price heading back up to the 4hr 200MA near $237 and 1470 CNY. Until then, price is below both the 20MA (green) and 200MA (red) in the 4-hour chart and decline could continue to $215 and 1300 CNY, as illustrated by the lower magenta level in today’s chart.
