As per the past two days of market action, an early-day bullish 15-minute chart condition catapults price higher, and then profit taking at the resistance ceiling near $460 and $3030 pulls price back to support.

Yesterday, we were pleased that price was trading above its 1-hour 200MA after a bullish cross-over of the 20MA to above the 200MA. With little indicator signaling price has dropped back below the 20MA but holds above the 200MA. So, the 1-hour chart is not a strongly bullish, but it is not bearish either.

Summary

Bitcoin price has fallen away from its previous highs, but only moderately. The move may be part of a larger consolidation, but if price can hold above the 1-hour 200MA then advance to a new high is possible. The alternative, below the 1-hour 200MA, is that price returns to the $430s and low 2900 CNY levels before advance resumes into the new year.
