Bitcoin tests 100 day MA for the first time since October 2018

Last close above 100 day MA was back in September 2018. A long sideways up and down non-trending market from the end of November to now, has allowed the 100 day MA to slowly catch up with the price.  That up and down price action has been confined to $3314 to $4414 (so $1100), with most of the price action below $4000 and above $3314.

Runs from the 100 and 200 hour MA (again). The price of Bitcoin has run higher - despite the doom and gloom comments from ECBs Hannson (e). In reality it may come to fruition but we must remember, it is what HE thinks.   What he thinks does not really matter as he can't move the price $1.  "The market" moves the price, with the "market" consisting of all the buyers and sellers.  When buyers overwhelm sellers, the price goes higher, no matter the "thoughts" of a trader or even an ECB official.
