Daily chart for BTCUSD
Volatility

Sunday's trading range was $415.99 (5.19%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $553.34. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly above the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.

Support/Resistance

Breaking through the key resistance level at 8237.16 today, it is now likely to act as support going forward.

Trend

Although BTC is experiencing a short-term up trend, this might just be a correction, as both the medium and long term trends are still in negative territory.

Conclusion

Even though both sentiments are bullish for the next trading day, the classical technical analysis metrics are only slightly bullish while our quantitative statistics show a very bullish sentiment.
