The Bitcoin market has been moving in a rather orderly pattern over the past couple of years as it bursts from one level of trading to another before settling down for many months and then bursting to another level. The percentage range of the "settling down" or "consolidation" ranges has reduced quite a bit over time which is a sign that Bitcoin is maturing and building a following with more market participants. is the surest signs of both life but also of immaturity. For the long term, you can see very clearly that Bitcoin is "coming of age" and progressing by the very nature of its reduced percentage trading bands: You can see the times that I outline "inside months" in a green polygon on the chart.
I can also add that Bitcoin made its high back in June at 778.85 at this exchange , and that means the uptrend is not showing signs of strength. A strong trend will make new highs every 5 bars. So, it could very well be that Bitcoin is trading on a longer term time frame since it is still clearly trending up and the price is above the most recent consolidation area from 590-629 where it spent 4 months and then "range expanded up last month" to kick off another move up. "Range Expansion" is the market's purest way of showing dominance from one side of the market. Since September was 629-567 or a range of 52, once October is up more than 52, the market is in a "range expanded" condition. Also, once a market has range expansion, it must repeat that range expansion within 3 bars or else that trend has failed and a return to the mode over that time frame will most likely occur. So, the target from here is for a move to 1032 by the end of January and if it doesn't make it to 1032, sell short with a 1032 stop and target the mode down at 629-605.
That's the long and short of it.

PS - I realize isn't the dominant market, but I wanted to show continuity and use the chart I produced over a year ago that forecasted the rally of 100% from 240 to 480.
Another "time at mode" signal that looks solid here.

I'll review for other trades on shorter term time frames.
Either way - success!
Happy New Year.
Shorts have pushed it back to a level of very strong support that I'm willing to re-enter against. Long term value buyers will most likely overcome short-term short-sellers and scared sellers.

Here's the chart of the market at $801 currently.
Risk $100 to make $250+ initial risk assessment.
I'll update if it drops to $700 and view the risks at that point.
At $950-$1000 I'd bank half or more of the short term profits and look to repurchase on any dips back to $800-$750, which is for a long time "long term value support"
If any of you bought all the way down to $750, you are up nearly 18% in a week and I would suggest BANK profits on the lowest purchases to reserve for another test of $800 in the coming week. If we don't get that correction, then I would put those funds back to work.
Buying "AGAINST SUPPORT" is very low risk, and this is a strong return based on a VERY LOW RISK entry. 1/17/2017 12:10PM EST
