BTC/USD: Can bulls move to $9,700 or should we expect a slight decrease to $9,400?
Yesterday the $9,300 level acted as a support and stopped the pullback of the Bitcoin (BTC) price. The bulls seized the chance, gradually increasing buying volumes, and at the end of the day, a powerful bullish momentum broke through $9,441, testing the uptrend line.
Bitcoin (BTC) managed to update the July high to $9,573, but this morning the price slipped to the area of $9,500. To continue the rally, the bulls need to gain a foothold above the rising trend line. If in the near future buyers overcome the resistance in the area of $9,600, then the race may continue to the level of $9,800. If bears try to increase the pressure, then one can count on a fairly strong support level of $9,441.
On July 21, Bitcoin (BTC) broke through the upper border of the descending Triangle after several unsuccessful attempts. From the point of view of technical analysis, this is a signal for a possible rise in price to $10,000. The price never reached the support level of $8,900. In other words, the slope resistance line was broken through without fuel in the form of pending buy orders at $8,900.
On the weekly chart, Bitcoin (BTC) is slightly turning to the bullish zone. However, trading volume is still too low to fix above $10,000. On the other hand, there is a bullish divergence on the RSI indicator, and it has not reached the overbought zone yet. In this case, traders may expect a false breakout of the $10,000 mark followed by a decline.
Bitcoin is trading at $9,495 at press time.
