The recovery from $7,270 a $7,570 has established a higher low (bullish pattern), which adds credence to Tuesday’s bullish outside-day candle and bullish price-relative strength index (RSI) divergence.
Por lo tanto, BTC could test supply around $7,870 – resistance of trendline sloping downwards from the May 6 high and May 21 alto.
It also means the cryptocurrency will likely peep above the all-important 50-week MA, currently located at $7,711. sin embargo, only a weekly close (Sunday’s close as per UTC) above that level would signal bearish invalidation.
As seen in the chart above, the last weekly candle had closed below the 50-week MA for the first time since October 2015, in theory indicating the end of the long-term bull run.
Despite the bullish set up, there is merit in being cautious as the major moving averages – 50, 100 y 200 – on the 4-hour chart are also biased to the bears, as is the 10-day MA.
- Bitcoin will likely soon rise to $7,870 (descending trendline hurdle) in the next 24 horas. A high-volume break above that level would allow a re-test of the 50-day moving average, currently located at $8,522.
- Bearish scenario: The moving averages are maintaining a bearish bias, so a drop to $6,900 could be on the cards if the bulls fail to capitalize on the break above $7,500 and the price drops below $7,270 in the next 24 horas.
