BTC/USD 4-hour chart
The moving average convergence divergence (MACD) is striving to jump across the line into the positive territory. The wide divergence of the MACD shows that the buyers have more influence despite the correction from the intraday to the current market value of $8,356.
The decreasing volume, however, means that if Bitcoin fails to return above $8,500 as well as break above the next hurdle at $8,600, risks of retracement under $8,000 are very high. The target on the downside is $7,600. In this zone, Bitcoin is likely to encounter more buy entries adding to the demand. The bullish pressure in this zone will propel BTC above $9,000.
The double-bottom formation on the four-hour chart suggests that more gains are likely to occur as long as the technical picture keeps improving. Re-emergence above $8,500 and $8,600 hurdles respectively will mark the continuation of the bullish momentum commenced yesterday.
