Bitcoin Price Prediction: BTC Could Suffer Another Rejection At $10,000

Bitcoin price

  • Bitcoin breaks out of a symmetrical triangle pattern, closing in on the critical $11,000.
  • BTC has a relatively clear path to $11,500 as long as buyers can pull above the short term hurdle at $11,000.

The flagship cryptocurrency broke out of a symmetrical triangle discussed multiple times this week. The 4-hour timeframe chart has seen Bitcoin print an engulfing candlestick, which culminated on a short-lived rally towards $11,000. The momentum appears to have built on the support at $10,600. Buyers cemented their position in the market by stepping above the confluence formed by the 50 Simple Moving Average and the 100 SMA.

Bitcoin exchanged hands within a whisker of $11,000 but buyers lost steam, leaving the critical level unconquered. Meanwhile, BTC is teetering at $10,900 amid a gradually building bearish grip. It is essential that the hurdle at $11,000 comes down to give bulls the ultimate push towards the psychological $12,000 level.

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) closed in on the overbought region but is pointing downwards at the momentum, illustrating the bears’ return. The volume is quite low, in a way, limiting price action. Therefore, consolidation is likely to take precedence as the weekend is ushered in. Initial support is highlighted at $10,800 but confluence formed by the 50 SMA and 100 SMA will absorb some of the selling pressure in case of a reversal. Other key levels to keep in mind include $10,600, $10,400 and the range between $10,200 and $10,000.
