So far, the new decade is in favor of Bitcoin’s Bulls. Following the break-out from two days ago, the price finally managed to get over the $7300 – $7400 resistance area, while setting a new 2-week high at $7600 (Bitstamp), as of writing these lines.
While the global stock markets are seeing heavy red, Bitcoin is enjoying the war talks between the US and Iran, following the death of General Soleimani by the US.
As can be seen on the following 4-hour chart, over the past days Bitcoin had been paving its way up in the marked ascending channel. However, the real test of this channel will arrive when Bitcoin will reach the $7700 – $8000 price area.
The last contains the 100-days moving average line (white), along with the most significant descending trend-line (started in June 2019, at the yearly high) and of course, the horizontal resistance lines of $7700 and $8000.
From below, the first support had now become the $7300 – $7400 area, along with the 50-days moving average line (marked pink). Further below lies $7200, along with the mid-term ascending trend-line on the daily chart. The next level is $7000 and $6800.
– The RSI Indicator: The momentum indicator wasn’t in this high of 56 for the past two months (!). This is a bullish sign and might indicate on a quiet accumulation of Bitcoin by the bulls.
– Trading volume: Despite the decent gains, the volume is not yet here. As mentioned in our previous analysis, January 3rd which ended as a reversal day, was followed by a decent amount of volume. However, heavy bag-holders are not here yet.
