Currently, the sideways trend is prevailing on the 4H chart. Bitcoin (BTC) continues trading within the $5,000 and $5,500 range. Thus, the Bollinger Band indicator supports the parity of bulls and bears. Also, trading volume is not increasing, suggesting that a sharp rise in the nearest days is unlikely.

On the bigger time frame, the bullish mood is becoming more vivid. Seller trading volume is dropping, meaning that bears are losing their effort to push the price below the $5,000 mark.
