Will the price of Bitcoin fall below the major multi-year moving averages?
Analyst Caleb Franzen explained that the Estimated Moving Average (EMA) is an indicator used to gauge the price over a certain period of time. According to Franzen, if the price of Bitcoin continues to decline, it would be the first time in its history that the 52 and 104 week EMAs would cross below the 156 week EMA.
#Bitcoins analysis using annual EMAs on weekly candles:
52 week EMA = 1 year
104 weeks EMA = 2 years
156 weeks EMA = 3 years
We never saw the 52 or 104 EMA cross below the 156 EMA, but we are getting closer to that cycle.
