Bitcoin Technical Analysis: BTC Eyes Retreat Before Another Breakout To $11,000

  • Bitcoin price is poised for a retreat to the next support at $10,600.
  • The 50 EMA and 100 EMA are in line to offer support to save Bitcoin from the potential fall to $10,600.

The flagship cryptocurrency has been able to rise above the stubborn resistance at $11,000. However, there was an impressive bullish price action over the weekend that saw Bitcoin draw closer to $11,000. Unfortunately, the bullish case was cut short, leaving a gap that has been explored by the bears. BTC/USD refreshed support at $10,600 after which bulls took another shot at $11,000 but hit a barrier at $10,860.

Meanwhile, Bitcoin is trading at $10,810 even as bulls seek support above $10,800. Looking at the Relative Strength Index (RSI), the bellwether digital asset is still in the hands of the bulls. However, a minor retreat made by the RSI suggests that exhaustion is slowly engulfing the bullish camp.

If Bitcoin delays the run-up to $11,000, sellers could eventually gain traction, sending the price back to $11,600 support. From there, buyers will have the energy to push to $11,000, mainly riding on newly created demand from investors who choose to buy low. Note that if the support at $10,600 is shattered, Bitcoin may be forced to seek refuge in the next key range at $10,000 – $10,200. The bearish scenario would also confirm a forming rising wedge pattern.

Support is envisioned at the 50 Simple Moving Average (SMA) and the 100 SMA in the hourly range. Bitcoin could invalidate the reversal to $10,600 if the price holds above these moving averages. On the upside, a break above $11,000 would pave the way for gains towards $11,200 resistance, in turn, allowing buyers to shift the focus back to $12,000.
