Bitcoin Price Analysis: BTC/USD Bulls Focused On Destroying $9k

COINBASE:BTCUSD   Bitcoin / U.S. Dollar
  • Bitcoin recovery from recent support at $8,600 stalls above $8,900 but eyes still glued at $9,000.
  • BTC/USD must step above $9,000 soon to avert possible refreshing of $8,600 support due to bears’ gaining traction.
Bitcoin price has since the weekend session been unable to clear the resistance at $9,000. This follows the losses that tested the support at $8,600. While recovery has already stepped above $8,900, the low trading volume still hinders growth towards $9,000.

At the time of writing, BTC /USD is trading at $8,908. The minor intraday gains during the Asian session follow a bounce from the key trendline support. According to the moving averages, the trend is mainly in the hands of the buyers. The 50-day SMA seems to be expanding the gap above the longer-term 200-day SMA . Both the SMAs will also function as support levels in the event Bitcoin fails to sustain gains towards $9,000 and instead, free-falls to refresh support at $8,600.

Bitcoin is ready to take down the critical hurdle at $9,000 in the coming European session. The Relative Strength Index ( RSI ) is holding the ground at 50 after the recent dive from overbought levels found support at 45.

A glance at the MACD hints that Bitcoin is not in the clear yet. Although the indicator is in the positive region, its downward trend points towards seller domination. Moreover, there is a vivid bearish divergence that could encourage more sellers to join the market.

Apart from the support areas at the trendline and at $8,600, Bitcoin could seek refuge at the 61.8% Fibo taken between the last drop from $10,493 to a swing low of $4,161.75. Other levels of interest to the buyers would be $7,200 and $6,000 respectively.
