Bitcoin Price: Crypto Market May be Poised for Bullish Breakout

Bitcoin on Tuesday confirmed another bull flag formation after reversing from its downside correction action.

The BTC/USD pair has almost negated the losses made during yesterday’s trading session, bringing the 24-hour gains to 0.46 percent. The pair found a strong intraday support level at 6372-fiat, just ahead of testing the lower trendline of the parallel channel introduced in the previous analysis. It reversed from the said level to retest its interim resistance at 6421-fiat. The BTC/USD pair is now trading at 6427-fiat on a comparatively high volume day. Coupled with the bull flag formation, it is also signaling further upside action as the US session comes into play.

The hourly signals are turning more bullish as BTC/USD continues to trend above its 100- and 200-period simple moving averages. At the same time, the RSI is also reversing to the north from its current neutral area, hinting a possibility of a strong push towards the overbought region. The Stochastic Oscillator movements are also biased towards the north, moving right towards the area defined by strong buying sentiment.

The upside bias nevertheless remains capped by a medium-term descending trendline depicted in blue. A break above it could bring BTC/USD inside a bull trap. But, an extended momentum that takes the pair above 6810-fiat could confirm a medium-term upside sentiment in the market.

BTC/USD Intraday Analysis

Our focus is likely to remain on our intraday positions, to take out the maximum profits regardless of the direction of the BTC/USD price action. So, without further ado, let’s have a look.

Our intraday positions from yesterday have allowed us to exit our long position towards 6421-fiat on a decent profit. As we now gear up for another day of trading, the levels we are watching stand slightly modified. A break above 6421-fiat has allowed us to find an ideal long target at 6450-fiat instead while keeping 6472-fiat in view. A stop-loss order at 6515-fiat is defining our risk management perspective on these long positions.

A breakout action above 6421-fiat only puts BTC/USD in a bull trap, meaning the pair could attempt a strong reversal nevertheless. So a sign of reversal coupled with an increase in volume could have us open a short position towards the lower trendline of the parallel channel formation while eyeing 6329-fiat as a potential downside target. In both these positions, maintaining a stop loss order just 5-pips above the entry point will minimize our losses.

Bitcoin Cash Price Gets Skewed due to Exchange Trickery

A lot of confusing action is taking place where the Bitcoin Cash price is concerned. Although its actual decline in value is quite obvious for everyone to see, the real price of BCH is not necessarily what people can see on Coinmarketcap. This is primarily because numerous exchanges treat BCHABC as Bitcoin Cash already despite nothing being decided in terms of which chain will be the longest. Bitcoin Cash Value Fluctuates Heavily Depending on where traders look at, the price of Bitcoin Cash will be either close to the $400 level or down to $250-ish. That is quite a large gap between prices, yet one that is also very easy to explain. Bitcoin Cash, as people knew it before the fork, no longer exists. Most professional exchanges have also retired this price ticker, for the time being. As the hash war rages on, there are still a lot of unknown factors waiting to be addressed. Despite this ongoing kerfuffle, there is a net 5.76% decrease in the Bitcoin Cash price, and a 5.4% decline over Bitcoin. More specifically, that is what CoinMarketCap reports at this time, although this is not necessarily the case whatsoever. In fact, some exchanges are clearly jumping the gun by labeling BCHABC as BCH and thus dragging the Bitcoin Cash price down a bit more. Exchanges currently engaging in this activity include Bittrex and Coinex, neither of which plays a big role of importance when it comes to trading. However, based on the current value of BCH on Bitfinex and Gate.io, it seems a similar incident is taking place. One also has to keep in mind Bitcoin Cash was getting battered ahead of the network split as well. Most exchanges have halted trading of BCH indefinitely, primarily because the currency no longer exists. It is evident either BCHABC or BCHSV will take over that name in the future, but nothing has been decided at this point. As such, any trading referring to just “Bitcoin Cash” or “BCH” should be avoided, as most users can never be sure which currency is effectively being traded under this name. All of this skews the picture pertaining to Bitcoin Cash altogether. Coinmarketcap reports there is still $392m in trading volume for BCH, even though that is virtually impossible right now. With so many exchanges freezing deposits and withdrawals, it is evident actual BCH trading is no longer possible whatsoever. Virtually all platforms have deposits of BCHSV and BCHABC frozen as well, which only makes this market trend more confusing. It is safe to say the entire network split has been a bit of a mess first and foremost. In the case of Bitcoin Cash itself, that name will – under the current circumstances- not be used across exchanges for much longer. Instead, the two separate camps need to be treated as such first and foremost. Until things settle down – with might not necessarily happen anytime soon – the Bitcoin Cash price itself is pretty much irrelevant for most traders and speculators.
