According to Dow Theory, the Bitcoin price is in the public participation phase with some minor correction. During this phase, negative sentiment starts to dissipate. As the good news starts to permeate the market, more and more investors move back in, sending the prices higher. This phase tends not only to be long lasting, but also the one with the largest price movement. It is also the phase in which most technical and trend traders start to take long positions.
This phase is followed by the distribution phase, which is represented by the topping of the market where the price movement starts to flatten as selling pressure increases. The correction is temporary and can give opportunity for taking long position.
The price is moving between the channels whilst the channels are expanding, indicating volatility. The Bitcoin price is almost around the lower channel acting as support and we see that RSI is turning flat indicating negative momentum is over.
