Dow Theory

According to Dow Theory, the cryptocurrency’s price is in the accumulation phase. It is a period when investors are actively buying against the general opinion of the crypto market.

During this phase, the price does not change much because these investors are in the minority, demanding to buy quantities that the market at large is supplying. This phase is followed by the participation phase.

Bollinger Bands

The BTC price is moving between the channels with the lower channel limit acting as support and the middle average line was previously acting as resistance but then it was broken; now, the upper limit is acting as resistance.

It can be seen that the channel is expanding with a positive momentum. It indicates increased volatility with positive sentiments, so it is suggested to wait until the price crosses above the upper limit before taking a long position.
