Over the past days, Bitcoin price was mainly trading around the $9400 mark, following the MA-50 pink line of both the attached 4-hour chart and the daily.
This dull sideways action had started a week ago, and despite a little glitch below $9200, we can say that the trading range had been $9200 – $9500, which is quite stable for a currency like Bitcoin.
As history taught us, Bitcoin does not like staying at one spot for a long while. We do anticipate a wild move to take place, probably during the upcoming weekend.
Looking at the 4-hour chart, we can see that Bitcoin is forming a symmetrical triangle. This emphasizes the tight range the price is consolidating through, along with the fact that both scenarios – the bullish and the bearish are valid.
Looking at the trading volume, the past two days were among the lowest volume days since March.
The daily RSI also consolidates and currently fighting for the horizontal line of 46. A bullish sign will be a break back above the 50 – 52 area.
