Flash Alert: Wednesday 9th October
Bitcoin currently seems to be stuck somewhere around the 7-day simple and exponential moving averages, as may be seen from the chart above.
It’s not very often that you get to see such indecision.
Bulls would argue that Bitcoin finding its feet again above $8,000 level and stubbornly maintaining buyers around the 7-day moving averages is actually a show of strength.
Bears would argue that Bitcoin’s inability to find solid grounding at the short-term moving averages is actually a sign of weakness and claim that Bitcoin is at risk of caving in.
Both sides have a point actually. Given the level of indecision its probably best to wait it out as it could really go both ways.
Notwithstanding, we have been (and continue to be) bearish on the overall price trajectory of Bitcoin although at the same time we are surprised that a stronger bounce hasn’t materialized yet.
As a matter of fact, we had signaled the potential of a strong bounce in our update yesterday.
At the time of writing, BTCUSDT was trading at $8,140 following an earlier intra-day high of $8,203 and low of $8,115.
