BTC/USD: Any prerequisites to attain $19,000 next week?
Yesterday, in the first half of the day, sellers pierced the support of the hourly EMA55 but failed to consolidate below average prices. In the second half of the day, buyers restored the pair above the psychological mark of $18,000; however, by the end of the day, the volume of purchases decreased, and the growth failed to continue at night.
This morning bulls are trying to continue the run using the support of the EMA55 moving average. If market participants believe in growth and support the growth with large purchases, then a new annual maximum is possible around $19,000.
On the other hand, it should be taken into account that bears can increase the onslaught at the level of $18,500, and then they may break through the support of the average price level, returning the pair to the area of $16,600.
Bitcoin (BTC) managed to catch very strong support in the $17,400- $17,500 zone and tested it several times already, which may indicate that the bulls are not planning to give up before taking a historic high. The descending triangle, which earlier could have indicated a decline, has also broken upwards. Thus, from the technical point of view, everything looks relatively safe. The only resistance on the way to $20,000 is $19,000, which may be an obstacle for bulls.
On the weekly chart, a false breakout of the $19,000 zone may lead the rate of Bitcoin (BTC) to the closest support at $16,000. However, that would be just a correction and not a start of the bearish cycle. Such a scenario is relevant for the upcoming weeks.
Bitcoin is trading at $18,281 at press time.
