Bitcoin Price Analysis, 16th May 2018: Bitcoin Markets Stagnant Above $8,000

Bitcoin markets appear to have a hard time finding sustainable support above USD 8,500 levels. Even after the bullish breakout experienced only a couple of days ago, markets are again experiencing a dip, this time reaching low levels of USD 8,100.

The day’s signals

  1. Large sell0ffs crashed Bitcoin prices down from USD 8,500 levels where BTC/USD was at in the earlier hours of the trading session.
  2. The crash appears to be a continuation of the downward trend. This trend appeared following Bitcoin markets reaching a top above USD 8,800.
  3. Volatility still appears to be in play but this time around, leaning towards overall bearish sentiment.

GDAX BTC/USD charts are showcasing the market’s mood through a couple of interesting patterns. The first is an apparent market disdain when it comes to following up on positive price movements. The major crash for the day caused prices to drop from USD 8,500 levels down to USD 8,100 levels. With markets taking consideration for a few hours, traders achieved a recovery reaching slightly below USD 8,400 levels. Some brief consideration ensued and then yet another dip, this time with prices reaching a low at USD 8,200 price levels. From there on, prices have been pressured against reaching USD 8,400 levels again.

OKEX BTC/USD weekly futures still appear to be maintaining some positivity. Futures traders are keeping up the positive difference between futures rates and live market prices. That’s in continuation to the recently reached peak. A breach in the now sideways trailing prices could potentially limit that positive difference substantially. The recent hours where volumes have gone down leave markets especially vulnerable to another breakout that could end up being negative.

All in all, traders are certainly more cautious after the day’s volatility proved support hasn’t come on to back prices above USD 8,500.  Interestingly enough though, while volumes have gone down, prices are now managing to rise under this setting. However, support for even the current levels proved to be unreliable throughout the day. The way Bitcoin markets are playing out, there’s no wonder traders appear skeptical in this moment.

Bitcoin Price Analysis, 15th May 2018: BTC/USD Markets Volatile Above $8,000

Bitcoin prices remain above USD 8,000 but volatility comes to be a major force in today’s trading session. Prices dipped to USD 8,300 levels at one point with the markets taking consideration for several hours. Ultimately, there was a sizeable upward spike that moved prices to a recovery but the sustainability of such levels comes into question.

The day’s signals

  1. Prices were moving slightly below USD 8,800 earlier through the trading session.
  2. A large selloff made markets touch the bottom at around USD 8,300 levels, with traders taking consideration for several hours.
  3. An upward spike pushed prices to USD 8,700 levels again with markets seemingly exiting the bearish breakout.

BTC/USD charts showcase the extent of the day’s volatility. Bitcoin prices went through some wild swings in the course of today’s trading session. Ultimately, prices might have returned to levels similar to the ones prior to the day’s selloff, but selling pressure certainly showed its capabilities. Traders might be building up more cautiousness now that the market’s sentiment showed itself to be capable of allowing a breach down to USD 8,300 price levels. Resistance for upward movements following the recovery is apparent as markets currently appear uneasy with further price rises.

OKEX BTC/USD weekly future charts display a lack of exaggeration in price movements. Futures traders didn’t mirror the selloff to its fullest extent but also didn’t seem to be firm believers in a potential recovery. It’s likely the potential of such price levels being sustained came into question. With uncertainty reaping the markets along with volatility, futures traders are likely trying to play it safe. It’s worth mentioning that with live markets taking consideration amid lower volumes, prices might be prone to another crash.

All in all, traders might be pleased with the fact that BTC/USD markets didn’t breach below USD 8,300 levels. Afterall, the resistance observed in live markets could also be another contributor to the current mood of the market. If a further crash can be avoided, trades could eventually start working on breaking resistance levels.

OKEX BTC/USD weekly futures charts still showcase the positive divide futures traders are maintaining between their markets and live prices. Bitcoin futures prices are continuing to trade above live market rates. While this trend began earlier in the week, yesterday’s breach doesn’t seem to have affected the sentiment among futures markets. It’s also worth noting that this positivity only kept growing as confidence in the rising price gained.

All in all, traders are now showcasing more confidence with prices staying above USD 9,000 after a head start in the beginning of today’s trading session. This market sentiment might be something that more positive developments could be launched from.

However, the recent positive developments could be signaling a breakout of the post-correction market sentiment.
