Looking at the 1-day & 4-hour charts
From above, Bitcoin is still facing the $5000 area. The bears had set there high supply levels and it seems that the task won’t be so easy. As mentioned in our previous analysis, the next significant resistance area of $5300, further resistance (weak) lies at $5500 before reaching the 2018 legendary support turned resistance line at $5700.
From below, there is strong support around $4700 (38.2% Fibonacci retracement level) and even stronger support around $4600, where lies the 200-days moving average line of the daily chart (marked in light green). It’s likely to see the strong daily MA-200 getting retested again – Whether it will be soon, around $4600-4700 or in the next couple of weeks. Below lies resistance turned support levels of $4500 (61.8% Fibonacci retracement level) and $4400.
– Daily chart’s RSI: Stochastic RSI oscillator is stretched out and could be crossing down soon in the overbought area. This could signal on a coming up correction to retest prior support levels.
– The daily trading volume: The recent Bitcoin FOMO was followed by massive amount of volume during Tuesday and Wednesday. Yesterday’s sellers’ volume candle was a lot smaller, which is how a bull market needs to look like (high green candles vs. short red candles). Monitoring the volume in the next days will be interesting.
– BitFinex open short positions: There was not much of a change in this field, as the open short positions stand around 20.8K of BTC open positions.
