Bitcoin Price Prediction: BTC Ready For A 5% Rebound To $50,000

Published by

Bitcoin price correction continued on December 13 undoing all the gains that began on December 10 to reclaim the $50,000 crucial level. Bitcoin is down 2% to trade at $48,274. The price correction has made the BTC market cap to tank below the $1 trillion mark with its market dominance dropping to  41.52%. Can the big crypto rise above $50,000 in the near future?

Bitcoin price ready for a 5% rebound to $50,827

Bitcoin (BTC) price action has formed a pennant on the four-hour chart which has triggered today. The triggering of the chart pattern suggests decreasing price volatility as BTC/USD consolidates inside the pennant.

The horizontal movement of the Relative Strength Index (RSI) at 50 validates this price consolidation. The sideways movement of the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator points to a price consolidation.

However, the MACD has sent a buy Bitcoin signal on the four-hour chart. This happened when the blue MACD line crossed above the orange signal line indicating that the market sentiment has turned bullish.

Therefore, if the price of the largest cryptocurrency by market cap rises above the pennant’s resistance line at $48,308, it will confirm a bullish breakout. However, a decisive bullish breakout will be achieved after Bitcoin price rises above the 50-four-hour SMA at $48,833. After which, the December 12 range high above $50,827 will be the next logical move, representing a 5.39% rise from the current price.

However, if BTC price favours the bears and drops below the pennant’s support line at $48,067, it will trigger massive sell orders that are likely to take Bitcoin towards the $47,000 psychological level.

A drop further could see Bitcoin drop further towards the $46,800 support floor or even towards the target pf the pennant chart pattern around $44,600.

At the moment, investors should hold on to their BTC or USD’s and wait to see which direction the big crypto take.
