Market Overview

Taking a look at the chart above, we can clearly see the Bitcoin bull run in full effect. The cryptocurrency started the year at a price of around $7,000 and has managed to climb as high as $10,522 during this month.

However, we can see that Bitcoin is developing some signs of weakness at the $10,432 level. This resistance is provided by a 1.618 Fibonacci Extension level and BTC continues to fail each time it attempts to break, and close, above the aforementioned level.

Short term prediction: BULLISH

The market still remains bullish and it would need to drop beneath $9,800 for this bull run to be invalidated. On the other hand, it must break the $10,432 resistance soon to remain in a bullish trading condition.

If the sellers push beneath the support at $10,180, the next level of support lies at $10,000. Beneath this, additional support lies at $9,814, $9,637 (.382 Fib Retracement), $9,500, and $9,366 (.5 Fib Retracement).

On the other hand, if the bulls regroup and push higher, the first 2 levels of resistance lie at $10,432 and $10,522. Above this, resistance lies at, $10,730, $10,925, and $11,000.

Key Levels

Support:  $10,180, $10,000, $9,814, $9,637, $9,500, and $9,366.
