Bitcoin bulls are currently at their strongest since this year started. Bitcoin did not only surprise many by breaking the key resistance at $10,000, BTC/USD also formed new 2019 highs 11,279. Meanwhile, the intraday charts show bitcoin having corrected up 2.11% on Monday considering that it opened the session at $10,833. Retreat from the opening price tested the support at $10,500 but formed a low at $10,550.87 before correcting to the intraday high of $11,094.87.
BTC/USD 15-mins chart
The 15-minutes chart shows the largest crypto by market capitalization above the 61.8% Fib retracement level taken between the last drop from $11,279.36 to a low of $10,378.50. Slightly bearish momentum is forming towards $11,000 while Bitcoin is exchanging hands at $11,010.
On the upside, bullish momentum is immediately limited by the resistance at the intraday high ($11,094). If Bitcoin manages to clear this resistance $11,100 will be the next pivotal position. A break above this level could pave the way for another assault on $12,000. Besides, technically Bitcoin has the potential to beat its recent 2019 highs and correct towards $15,000.
The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) has recovered from the low levels reached earlier today at -59.10 to the current +47.02. This recovery means that the buyers are gaining traction. Moreover, the upward momentum is supported by the Relative Strength Index (RSI), which is forming a higher low pattern in addition to being above average at the time of writing.
As far support is concerned $11,000 is the immediate support. The 100 Simple Moving Average (SMA) 15-mins will function as another support line currently at $10,845.50 (just above the 50% Fibo). Other key support areas to look out for include $10,800, $10,600 and $10,500.
