比特币价格分析: Market Direction Depends on Next Price Line Tests

The price of bitcoin is creeping up this morning into the mid-$9,000 range.

According to yesterday’s price analysis, whether the market was going to move up or down remained to be seen, but key price levels to watch have been near the bottom of our current trading range in the $8,600s.
