A breakout has still not occurred in Bitcoin as the triangle pattern approaches its end. On the logarithmic scale chart, price action has actually managed to break out of the pattern and close above, but this also happened earlier in the year and preceded a sharp decline. Many analysts are using this scale and are anticipating the downward trendline of the triangle turning from resistance to support and preceding bullish price action.

On the standard price scale, we are still trading within the triangle pattern. Price action is currently trading at $6600 and would need to drop from here to stay within the triangle pattern. Price continues to consolidate. Volatility forms a new 2018 low as measured by the average true range (ATR). ATR is currently around 187. It has been forming new 2018 lows almost every day now for two weeks. RSI is around 50 showing equal pressure from buyers and sellers. Volume is below the 20-period average daily volume and price action appears to be experiencing some resistance at the 50-EMA.
