Bitcoin Price Eyes Recovery After Defense of Long-Term Support

Bitcoin’s defense of key long-term support for the second time in four days is a positive sign for a potential recovery rally. The leading cryptocurrency by market value fell below $4,242 (low of Wednesday’s inside-day candle) in the Asian trading hours, putting the bears back into the driver’s seat. As a result, BTC fell below the 200-week exponential moving average (EMA) of $4,182 earlier today. The breach of the EMA support, however, may have trapped the bears on the wrong side of the market, as BTC is currently trading at…

Recovery in Doubt as Bitcoin Price Drops Out of Bullish Channel

Bitcoin is painting a less bullish picture than 24 hours ago, following a drop out of an ascending price channel. Stepping back, the leading cryptocurrency picked up a strong bid at $6,200 on Oct. 31, keeping the crucial 21-month EMA support intact. Further, it witnessed a symmetrical triangle breakout earlier this week, suggesting that bulls had come out victorious in a tug of war with the bears.

Twitter Facebook LinkedIn Alex Krüger, a well-recognized cryptocurrency trader and technical analyst, has said Bakkt will lead the recovery of Bitcoin throughout 2018 and the first quarter of 2019.
