Is Bitcoin Turning Up Again?

Bitcoin has been bearish from mid-July to mid-August, falling from above 300 to around 162. Then as we can see, price has started to trade sideways but held below 240. As we get into the weekend (9/5), bitcoin is still trading sideways but a bullish attempt invites the question of whether BTCUSD is ready to rally again.

The 4H chart shows the virtual currency trying to break above the current price range. It is cracking a falling trendline from around 300, the high at the end of July. Price is already above the 100-, and 50-period simple moving averages in the 4H chart, and the 4H RSI has already tagged 70. These are signs that bulls are starting to take over in this market. 

A break above 240 should open up the support/resistance area around 260. A more aggressive outlook would be towards the 300 level, which might be a more likely scenario if we see the 240 level later tested and confirmed as support.

Failure to clear 240 and a drop below 230 however keeps the pair neutral-bearish in the short-term
