From this chart, we observe that the bullish momentum of Bitcoin in recent days might be followed by a retracement. The trade volume is seen to be reducing with the MACD moving averages further indicating a move down into the weekend. Additionally, the MFI is high at 75 further pointing to a scenario where Bitcoin will undergo a cool down before the move Mr. Bollinger has suggested, plays out.

As with all technical analyses of Bitcoin, traders and investors are advised to practice risk management as well as use stop losses to protect trading capital.
