Bitcoin (BTC): Trends and Highlights For April 17, 2019

  • The price of BTC reached a high on Apr 10.
  • BTC/USD has been trading inside an ascending channel since Apr 11.
  • Bitcoin is trading very close to the resistance line of the channel.
  • Bearish divergence is developing in the RSI.
  • There is resistance near $5320/€4698 and support near $5050/€4460.

A Look at the Current Trading Pattern

The price of BTC/USD is analyzed at two-hour intervals from Apr 10 to Apr 17 to determine Bitcoin’s current trading pattern. We do not include euros in this section because only one trading pair is needed to generate the current trading pattern. Both BTC/USD and BTC/EUR are discussed in the final two sections.
On Apr 11, the price made an hourly high of $5088.11. A gradual decrease was followed by a gradual increase. The price has made several higher highs during this period. Tracing these highs gives us an ascending resistance line: Bitcoin Resistance line On Apr 12, Bitcoin made a low of $4912. Several market cycles have been completed. The price has made successively higher lows. Tracing these lows gives us an ascending support line. The resistance and support lines combine to create an ascending channel: Bitcoin Support Line It is likely that the price will increase at the rate predicted by the channel until a decisive move occurs. In order to predict the direction of the movement, a look at technical indicators is required. To read about our full April price predictions, click on the green button below:


Technical Indicators

To better assess future price fluctuations, we incorporate technical indicators into the analysis. We begin with the relative strength index.
The relative strength index (RSI) is an indicator which calculates the size of the changes in price in order to determine oversold or overbought conditions in the market.
Combining RSI bullish/bearish divergence with support/resistance essentially predicts price fluctuations. They are shown alongside Bitcoin’s current trading pattern below:
Bitcoin Divergence
On Apr 15, Bitcoin reached a high of $5218.40 before a drop. On Apr 17, the price reached a high of $5291.30. Similarly, the RSI  made the first high on Apr 15. However, it has proceeded to generate lower or identical values. This is known as bearish divergence and often precedes price decreases. It should be noted that the divergence is not very significant in value. However, it is more pronounced in short-term time-frames. Below, the price of BTC/USD is analyzed at thirty-minute intervals from Apr 16 to Apr 17 alongside the RSI Bitcoin Divergence Using these indicators, it is likely that the price will eventually drop to the support line of the channel.

Reversal Areas

We now incorporate support and resistance areas to determine the actual possible future price levels. In this section, we analyze both BTC/USD and BTC/EUR trading pairs.
Support and resistance areas are created when the price revisits the same level several times. They can be used to find likely areas of reversal if a breakdown occurs.
These areas are traced in the graph below:
Bitcoin Reversal
The closest support area is found near $5050/€4460. This area coincides with the support line of the channel. We believe the price is likely to drop to this area. The closest resistance area is found near $5320/€4698. If the price keeps increasing at the rate predicted by the channel, it is likely that it will reach this area. We do not believe the price will break out above this area.

Conclusion and Summary

Based on this analysis, the price of BTC is likely to drop to the support line of the channel. This means that prices may near $5000 and drop below €4500. However, we do not predict that significant drops below $5000 are likely in the near future. Interested in 2019, 2020, and 5 year Bitcoin price predictions? Click on the green button below:
