This is 99Bitcoins’ weekly Bitcoin price analysis. 

13/7/2015 – Bitcoin price on the rise

All the indications from the previous week suggested an upside movement in the price index. Correctly so, the week started on a high with Bitcoin’s price jumping a massive 14% to break the $300 mark and was comfortably trading around $310. The price climbed up as high as $317.99, the highest mark of the last seven months. The MACD and the Signal Line were pretty strong with values of 14.8326 and 9.6590, respectively. The Histogram value was at 5.1736. The worrying point was the daily RSI value of 79.4324; the highest value registered in 2015, which indicated extreme overbought situations.
