Bitcoin (BTCUSD) - Key Levels Within Consolidation

Bitcoin has dipped in August and is ending the month in the middle of its 2015-range, which is roughly between 310 and 160 (around 230). The 4H chart shows the consolidation price action as we wind down the month.

Even though bitcoin is trading around the equilibrium price, there is a lot of bearish momentum in the short to medium-term. The very short-term momentum might be neutral, but in the 4H chart, we can see that the RSI held under 60, which means that the momentum in this time-frame is kept bearish. Also, price found resistance again around 237, a previous resistance and where the 100-period SMA resides.

The technical picture still suggests a bearish market, and as bitcoinc is still near that 237 resistance, we might see some further bearish action in the short-term heading into another global trading week. The 227 level is a common support area. If price falls below 225, we should anticipate a push to he 195-200 area. A break above 240 on the other hand neutralizes the bearish momentum I mentioned in the short to medium-term. There might be some bullish outlook after a break above 240, but I would refrain from expecting price to reach back to the 310-320 highs on the year before another strong bearish swing back to 2015 central pivot area around 230.
