- The short-term moving average over 50 periods of Bitcoin is close to the long-term moving average over 100 periods of the weekly chart, alluding to a potential formation of "golden cross" for the first time in three and a half years.
- In the short term, however, the total weekly volume declined from one period to the next, with indecision continuing to weigh on the market.
- The price action lies between the moving averages of 100 days and 200 days. The next major move in one or the other direction is likely to determine the trend bias in the future, if a firm close above or below these averages is confirmed.
Bitcoin (BTC) is expected to produce a long-term bullish signal that has not been seen for 3.5 years.
According to Bitstamp data, the 50 and 100 period MAs moved closer to the weekly chart after BTC rebounded from USD 7,293 to USD 10,350.
A 50-period MA crossing the slower MA of the 100 period, called the Golden Cross, usually suggests a strong change in trend and can confirm a bullish bias for long-term vision.
The last time the crossover occurred on the weekly chart was in May 2016, when the price of BTC began to rise, rising from 438 USD to almost 20,000 USD in December 2017, an increase of 4,800%. If ADs continue to converge as at present, the crossover seems likely towards the end of December or the beginning of 2020, but it is still too early for a specific call.

The price BTC price was taken between centennial AM and 200 days for 12 days.
In general, when prices are above the 200-day MA, the long-term trend can be considered bullish. Conversely, if prices are below the 100 day MA, this is an indication of medium term downtrend conditions (30 to 60 days).
The current scenario highlights the undecided sentiment felt on the market. Repeated failure beyond the 100-day limit could open the door to $ 8,800 in the short term, as noted earlier.
The indecision will continue until a firm closure greater than $ 9,573 (100-day MA) or less than $ 9,180 (200-day MA) occurs with a conviction, up to That we can expect that she continues.
