Ric Edelman, finance expert, the founder of Edelman Financial Engines: "The [Securities and Exchange Commission] SEC has several legitimate thoughtful concerns that the industry has to overcome but I'm confident they will. Eventually, we will see a Bitcoin ETF and it's at that stage that I will be much more comfortable recommending that ordinary investors participate."

Will we finally see any price action for Bitcoin? On the daily chart, the price for the digital asset has been capped by the 50-day MA at $3,715 and volatility has been dying out since the beginning of the week.    


 On H4, despite the high spike at the beginning of Monday, the grandfather of cryptocurrencies fell back within the $3,650-$3,704 range. From the technical side, the price formed the “Flag” pattern, which is characterized by a bullish rise on February 8-9 followed by the consolidation phase. This pattern may signal the rise if its upper border is broken.  But remember that cryptocurrencies may play tricks on you, so wait for further confirmations and don’t forget about stop losses!

For now, the closest resistance for Bitcoin lies at $3,677. If it’s broken, the next resistance is placed at $3,704. If bears are stronger, the price for Bitcoin will fall towards the support at $3,650. The break of this level will pull the crypto asset lower to the support at $3,621.
