The combination of flat trade and its bounce back above $580 puts BTC/USD right on par with its 200-day moving average. Recent weeks have seen the pair alternate positions above and below this key long-term indicator more times than during the first 6 months of 2014.
The pair has not deviated by a total of more than 20% within the past 10 weeks, making for one of the most (relatively) stable stretches in over a year.
