Normally much shorter term data points would be used for a shorter term analysis like this. Since this is the last Bitcoin $BTC report for the 2018 year, the weekly chart was used to portray the wider perspective.



Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD)

The MACD on the one day chart is bullish. The one week MACD is bearish.

Exponential Moving Averages (EMA)

period average
7 day 4190.99
25 day 5681.19

[EMA is a type of moving average that weights recent price fluctuations more, yielding a better short term signal]
