Short Term Update: daily chart at Bitstamp

chartWhat we have just seen is nothing more than a profit-taking in a strong uptrend. As always, our reference is the VWAP line and for bistamp at the moment it passes at $ 147, say $ 150. I’m not worried as long as prices remain above this level, it is just volatility because of some investors cashing in profits by selling large quantities of bitcoins.

For those who want to buy it is always good to try close to the VWAP, particularly if it is trending higher like it is doing this month. For MtGox this month VWAP is at 160$, for btc-china it is at 1000 CNY.

    Well if btc-chinas VWAP is at 1000 (164.30 USD) CNY, doesn’t this mean that it’s unlikely that other exchanges will go below this line also? And more so because we went there to try that 1000 CNY support already twice yesterday and it did hold?

    1. Yes, but don’t forget that there is a spread between the various exchanges and it is not fixed, it fluctuates a bit. For btcchina yes, vwap is at 1000 CNY and it has been a nice buying opportunity for who bought around that level.

        Yep, but that’s pretty big spread from btc-chinas VWAP 1000 CNY (164.30 USD) to bitstamps VWAP 147-150 USD. What do you think, will it test the 1000 CNY support third time or is’t up from now?.

        it’s at 152 vwap for stamp right now, and 164 for cny
        yes there is a spread but it is not uncommon in this market. as long as it stays above 1000 cny i think it will go up, pushed to the upside by the rising average.

    Enky, in your weekly Twitter update you indicated that price might retract to 175 on bitstamp this week. Do you expect it after second resistance of 235 is touched, yet more profit taking, or some time before it

    1. Enky

      volatility is lower now, i expect to reach 235 as an extreme for this upswing and then again some profit taking pushing prices down 40$-60$ dollars.
