Bitcoin Price Analysis: Triangle Breakout Pokes The Bulls, Is $9,600 Next?

  • Triangle breakout fails to stir up action as expected.
  • Bitcoin remains to be bound in a wide range between $9,600 and $9,000.

Bitcoin appears to be nurturing a bullish momentum towards the end of the European session on Monday. The action follows a mundane trading session over the weekend. The best that Bitcoin did was to defend the key support at $9,000. On the upside, the crypto remained depressed under $9,250.

Meanwhile, the four-hour chart shows Bitcoin trading above a triangle pattern. This particular triangle formed after Bitcoin hit highs above $10,500 and plunged back to $9,000. Also following the short-lived surge; a lower high pattern has been respecting the descending trendline.

An attempt to break above the 50 Moving Average (MA) resistance has been met by selling pressure. BTC/USD is currently dancing at$9,262 and appears to be losing traction. In spite of the brief breakout, the largest crypto on the market is still range-bound between $9,600 (upper limit) and $9,000 (support zone).

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) clearly shows that sellers are swinging in action to stop correction above $9,300. I expect, Bitcoin to stay above $9,200 in the short-term. The American session is likely to experience market indecision, especially with the decreasing volumes.

From a short-term perspective, a one-hour chart, Bitcoin will continue to trend lower. In other words, the triangle breakout was either false or a bull trap. However, the low volume suggests that we should not expect rapid movements. Therefore, the support at $9,200 could also hold in the short-term. Other key support zones include $9,000 and $8,800.
