This graph shows why Bitcoin’s price will go up again

In a dismal year for Bitcoin, one technical gauge suggests investors may be in for a reprieve.

The Williams Percentage R indicator, or WLPR, helps chart whether a security is oversold or overbought. Right now, it’s signalling that the world’s largest cryptocurrency may see a potential reversal of its current downward trajectory.

The analysis captures ideal entry and exit levels for buying or selling an asset. Data show that Bitcoin breached the level -80 marker of the indicator this week, a threshold suggesting to traders it may be time to get in on the action.

The gauge has proven fairly accurate over the past year — for example, when it signalled in April that the cryptocurrency was overbought the day before Bitcoin fell 4 percent.

Bitcoin has fallen almost 60 percent this year after nearly reaching $20,000 in December. On Friday it was trading just under $6,000.
