Bitcoin: Extreme volatility after the rejection at $9.350?
Early in the Morning, the Bitcoin price has increased and the Trading Range between 9,000 and 9,300 $ broke out.
The movement about the upper limit of this range was, however, only temporarily, as the seller and slowed the rise of BTC quickly, and the price of the Cryptocurrency in the direction of 9,100 $ down.
The buyers are now trying diligently to hold BTC in order to 9.200$, since this was in the last days of a critical support level.

Data show that BTC has to expect extreme volatility
This relentless consolidation within the Region of the lower USD 9,000 is no longer active, perhaps too long.
Josh Rager – a respected crypto-currency analyst and Trader – believes that such a low volatility as experienced by Bitcoin currently, typically the movements to follow in the order of 30% to 60%.
Under the assumption that a movement of 30% is more likely, he notes: BTC may soon be either in $12.200, or $6.500 traded.
“Bitcoin historical volatility (HV) is approaching 40. Such a low BTC volatility has in the past led to large price movements between 30% and 60% in the following weeks. From the current price: 30% movement to the top is 12.200 $. A movement of 30% down at USD $ 6,500. Put on your safety belt.“
