Bitcoin Breakout Trading With The Most Popular Indicators

BITSTAMP:BTCUSD   Bitcoin / U.S. Dollar
As explained on the chart the goal of this breakout strategy is to avoid risk and therefore the trade should only be entered if the price breaks above the last high of $386.60 on Bitstamp , because this is the last and most important signal to confirm a new uptrend. (Please zoom in to better see the candlesticks ).

Maybe this chart helps new people who are starting with trading to see the overall Bitcoin price trend. I researched what the most common day-trading indicators are and wanted to share with you what these show with default settings. The most popular indicators are the MACD , Stochastic and RSI ( Relative Strength Index ). The Moving Average wasn't mentioned as being the most popular, but I know it's a popular indicator, especially with the classic 50 day period.

The Bitcoin auction hasn't moved the market so far. No clear direction emerged.

Possible start of a downtrend = Sell! Almost all signals have become bearish except for the moving average which is always lagging and slow.

Four days later on Wednesday after publishing the volume shows more sellers. And the Stochastic has a bearish crossover. Last peak was $383. If you are trading Bitcoin these are early warning signals to consider selling. Still no breakout above $386.60 to enter the trade.
