1. The 3d 50MA has been a classic resistance for the last 9 months. We burst through it and subsequent candle bodies have remained above it.
2. The 200EMA has also acted as a strong resistance, and we bounced of it on the initial spike above the 50MA selling off on the R2 which is the expected take profit zone.
3. snapped just before the 50MA resistance break.
4. Clear evidence of accumulation as shown by the .
5. Twittersphere and mainstream media are buzzing with correlations of the Greece meltdown and Cyprus on bitcoin . While I don't personally pay any attention to this (since the Greeks are clearly not buying BTC , not able to transfer funds out of Greece, and clearly believed the government would reach a deal and thus failed to withdraw significant cash until it was too late). I think it's reasonable to assume BTC retail traders will gamble on a correlation. However there is cause to worry when retail's expectations don't match reality.

It's clearly too early to call the start of any bubbles, or even mini bubbles, but if it was going to happen, this would definitely be a good technical start. Of course one can speculate (i.e. guess), but looking at the bigger picture the trend is still and price is still quite compressed trading within a $30 range and equally sideways could continue. Breaking above the 200EMA is very likely to spark stronger buying and would be a much stronger signal than any "random diagonal line" breaks. There's definitely pretty good risk/reward ratio for long positions *with tight stops*. On the other hand, failing to make a significant break up after such a gallant effort is will weaken the case significantly.
Personally "allin" bitcoins from the $240s for the first time in a looong time but I wont hesitate to take profits, fiat is still king in my book.
"The Greeks are clearly not buying BTC, not able to transfer funds out of Greece (...)"
"Failing to make a significant break up after such a gallant effort will weaken the bullish case significantly. "
Here is my worst case scenario in case Bitcoin does not pump enough with the Grekt news. I don't think it will happen, but it could happen:
