Bitcoin Price Analysis: BTC Doubles-Down on $12,200 Trajectory

  • Bitcoin escapes the bear range ($10,200 – $10,500) stepping above $10,700.
  • A breakout above the rising wedge pattern will propel Bitcoin towards $11,000.

The bulls managed to shake off the bear pressured we discussed earlier today. As mentioned Bitcoin needed to come out of the battle zone between $10,200 and $10,500. Escaping this range has already revived the investors’ hope that Bitcoin will jump above $11,000 in the short-term.

Bitcoin bulls trampled massively on the resistance at $10,500 and $10,600 respectively. A couple of successive candlesticks pushed Bitcoin above the sellers’ congestion zone at $10,700. At the press time, Bitcoin is trading at $10,718 following a 3.19% rise on the day.

A number of former resistance zones are transforming into viable support areas. Although momentum is building towards $10,800 hurdle, a reversal may occur. If that happens, $10,700 will function as a credible support area. Traders must be aware and in the lookout for the next possible support zones including $10,400, $10,200 and $10,000.

In the short-term, it is important that Bitcoin is sustained above $10,200. Otherwise, a lower leg could extend below $10,000 and refresh the support areas between $9,200 and $9,300.

On the upside, the major hurdle is the ascending wedge pattern resistance. However, a break above the hurdle will propel Bitcoin above $10,800. Moreover, it will set the ground for an impending leg up to $11,200 and $11,500 in that order.

Technically, Bitcoin is poised for the trajectory above $11,000. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is now above 70 and pointing north. If the signal moves higher within the overbought, it will signal a stronger trend and price momentum. However, the retreat from the same zone will signal a reversal.

Bitcoin Key Technical Levels:

Spot rate: $10,789

Open: $10,316

High: $10,792

Low: $10,267.36

Trend: Strongly bullish.
