- Bitcoin price hits a snag short of $9,800, leaving room for a retreat towards $9,600.
- Bitcoin’s ascending channel is likely to shape the trend in the coming weeks.
Bitcoin is back in its bullish phase after testing lows close to $9,000 at the beginning of the week. The recovery has brought back the hope that $10,000 is nigh. Besides, many analysts including Fundstrat’s Tom Lee believe that BTC is just at the beginning of a marvelous performance show in 2020. Lee’s firm says that in the past Bitcoin has rallied at least 197% following breaks above the 200-day SMA.

Bitcoin rally on Wednesday broke some key barriers including $9,600 and $9,700. The surge pulled Bitcoin to a high of $9,765 (price level traded beginning of last November). The next hurdle at $9,800 was left untested allowing for a retreat. Bitcoin price is dancing at $9,581 amid a growing bullish momentum.
In spite of the correction from the recent high, Bitcoin is likely to recover, especially now that the bulls know that $10,000 is within reach. The ascending channel has defined BTC’s upward trend since mid-December and could continue to do the same in the coming weeks.
