- Bitcoin price recovers from the weekend support at $9,500 but stalls short of $10,000.
- The selling pressure at $10,000 is still intact; if unbroken in the short term, BTC/USD could spiral to $8,400.
Bitcoin price is facing a make or break situation. If the key hurdle at $10,000 is broken, Bitcoin could easily sail towards $10,500. However, if the selling pressure at the same zone stays intact, then Bitcoin could start losing momentum. For instance, the weekend session already saw BTC/USD retest $9,500 support. After the support was confirmed, Bitcoin buyers’ confidence increased. The renewed bullish grip is currently dealing with the resistance at $10,000.
Meanwhile, Bitcoin price is trading at $9,876 following a minor correction from the intraday high at $9,957. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) clearly shows that the bulls are in control and could continue to pull the price upwards. The same bulls are also facing their ultimate test to break the key $10,000 seller zone. Note that if this resistance is conquered, more buyers that are watching from the sidelines could join the market in order to capitalize on a possible breakout towards April high above $10,500.

On the flip side, if $10,000 remains unconquered in the short term, bullish influence could spike. In this case, the accrued gains could be trimmed massively. Moreover, the forming rising triangle pattern could jeopardize tentative support levels at $9,200, and $8,800. On the downside, the ultimate target is the support at $8,400. For now, the best the bulls can do is to hold above the weak support at $9,800 and keep their attention on breaking shuttering the resistance at $10,000.
