This is as clean of a continuation break as you are going to get, and this time we have a catalyst to really send it.

Will Bitcoin price drop below key multi-year moving averages?

Analyst Caleb Franzen explained that the estimated moving average (EMA) is an indicator utilized to gauge price over a certain period of time. According to Franzen, if Bitcoin price continues to fall, it would be the first time in its history that the 52 week and 104 week EMA’s crossed below the 156 week EMA.

#Bitcoin analysis using annual EMA’s on weekly candles:

52-week EMA = 1 year
104-week EMA = 2 years
156-week EMA = 3 years

We’ve never seen the 52 or 104 EMA’s cross below 156 EMA, but we’re getting very close this cycle.
