Bitcoin Price Analysis: BTC/USD Mooning To $10,000 Ahead Of The Halving In The Offing


  • Bitcoin price spikes above $9,300 in readiness for a pre-halving rally to $10,000.
  • As the 50-day SMA closed the gap toward 200-day SMA, incoming bullish momentum could be massive.

After plummeting to $8,400 following the breakout that almost tested $9,500, Bitcoin bulls have kept their interest in check. The desire to stick on the market mainly fueled by the halving in four days. Intriguingly, the price has recovered to settle above $9,000. Moreover, bulls are extending the action above $9,300 towards the end of the Asian session on Thursday.

A Pre-halving rally to $10,000?

As halving draws nigh, a pre-halving rally is on the table. Investors joining the market for a post-halving rally could easily push Bitcoin price above $9,500. However, BTC/USD has the potential to top $10,000 by the end of this weekend.

Bitcoin price technical picture

Bitcoin price is teetering at $9,334 at the time of writing. Its immediate upside is supported by the short term accelerated trendline (broken line). The Relative Strength Index (RSI) has made it back into the overbought region (above 70). This move would continue to encourage more buyers to join the market as their confidence grows. A break past the key hurdle at $9,400 could also boost the price above $9,500.

On the other hand, the 50-day SMA is closing the gap between the 200-day SMA to show that bullish power is coming and could be a force to be reckoned with. On the flipside, a breakout fails and Bitcoin corrects lower, support to be embraced lies at $8,800, $8,400, the 200-day SMA at $8,000 (aided by the 61.8% Fibo) and the 50-day SMA currently at $7,245.
