From a technical perspective, the surge to $10,000 is likely to take place in the European session on Thursday. According to the Relative Strength Index (RSI), the ongoing bullish action is strong enough to keep the sellers at bay. Besides, a higher trading volume coupled with technical support as observed with the bullish divergence above the MACD, the $10,000 hurdle will soon be in the rearview.

However, it is essential to observe all scenario and possible outcomes. If a reversal ensure and Bitcoin starts to dump, tentative support is observed at $9,000, the 61.8% Fibonacci level of the last drop from $10,546 to a swing low at $3,856 (200-day SMA).
