Short Term Falling Wedge Pattern
In spite of the retracement, bulls have not lost balance entirely. First, they have been able to not only hold above $9,100 but also push for a shallow recovery towards $9,200 (short term resistance). Bitcoin is also trading above a short term falling wedge pattern. The resistance break is setting the ground for ongoing correction likely to rise above $9,200.
As long as Bitcoin stays above $9,200 (current bullish zone), the buyers will have a chance to gather the strength to push for gains in the direction of $9,400 (medium-term target). The 50-day SMA resistance at $9,287 must be cleared to cement the bulls’ control over the price. If the Elliot Wave Oscillator jumps into a new bullish session, that could signal increased buying power.
