Bitcoin (BTC/USD) continued to orbit some very important technical levels early in today’s Asian session as bulls contemplated a fresh assault on the psychologically-important 12,000 figure, while bears eyed a return to the 11,136.82 area, a level that represents the 50% retracement of the move from 13,202.63 to 9,071.00. The pair is now trading well above its 50-bar MA (4-hourly) and continues to oscillate above and below its 50-bar MA (hourly).
