  • Bitcoin bulls revive interest in the market as cryptocurrencies battle key barriers.
  • Bitcoin bulls have no choice but to break $8,000 resistance or risks diving back to $7,000.

Bitcoin has had an incredible 2020 following the possible bottom at $6,550 in December. The cryptoasset has not only recovered significantly above $7,000, but it has also revived interest among the community and investors at large.

The volatility in Bitcoin price is largely related to the growing speculation with the upcoming May 2020 halving. Investors are taking position while miners increasing activity in readiness for the event that could see Bitcoin hit new all-time highs.

Meanwhile, Bitcoin is trading at $7,907 after the shallow recovery on Tuesday fell short of $8,000. Weak support has been established at $7,800. However, other key support areas include $7,600, $7,400, $7,200 and $7,000.

Despite the failure to breach the $8,000 resistance zone, Bitcoins remains strongly bullish. The RSI, for instance, is holding ground above 70. The shallow retreat from highs around 80 suggests that a reversal is imminent in the near term.

On the other hand, with the 50 SMA above the 100 SMA on the 4-hour chart, traders can tell that buying pressure is present. As long as the gap between the two moving averages continues to widen, Bitcoin could eventually hit the levels above $8,000 and correct towards $8,200.
