Jeff Williams, lead trader at, says that bitcoin-related stocks are worth watching again, because they crossed their 50-day moving average and are now falling back. Specifically, Williams says that bitcoin has pulled back on strong volume, and he is looking for resistance on the cryptocurrency between $5,800 and the $6,000 range; if he sees that, followed by a move back up, he will be looking to play Bitcoin Services Inc. (BTSC). He is expecting BTSC to follow bitcoin itself — which may move sideways for a few days after the big move of the last few days — and if he sees buyers come in, he will come along for the ride. He said he would buy Bitcoin Services if it holds and bounces off 7 cents per share, expecting a 20 percent maximum profit on the upside, but setting his stops at .67 cents per share.

Williams’ position on bitcoin now represents a change from earlier in the month, when he felt he had missed a strong move to the upside. At that point, he warned investors against chasing the trade, telling them to wait for the pullback that has now occurred.
