BTC/USD: Is the Current Bounce Off May Lead to $10,000?
Bitcoin (BTC) is finishing up the week with a loss of 3.30%, while its rate (since yesterday) remains relatively unchanged. The bulls bought back the leading coin at the $8,900 mark.
Looking at the 4H chart, traders might expect short-term growth towards the $9,350-$9,400 area, where most of the liquidity is located. What is more, the selling volume is almost nonexistent, which means that the bears are out of fuel to continue pushing the rate further down. Thus, a bullish divergence has been formed on the Relative Strength Index (RSI), confirming the potential by the bulls.
Looking at the daily time frame, the sideways trend has carried on for about 2 months. At the moment, neither the bull nor the bears are in control. The trading volume is low; however, there is interest between the $9,500 and $9,600 range, where a high level of liquidity is concentrated. In this particular case, there is a high probability of seeing Bitcoin (BTC) trading near the top level of the channel at $9,800.
The sideways trend also dominates the weekly chart. However, an upward trend is more likely than an update of the local bottoms. The trading volume is at medium level and the bulls are buying back each drop brought on by the sellers. The current bounce back might be another chance for buyers to inch closer towards the $10,000 mark. Furthermore, Bitcoin's liquidity is high at that level.
At press time, Bitcoin was trading at $9,059.
