Bitcoin Price Key Highlights

  • Bitcoin price broke above the neckline of the short-term double bottom formation illustrated in the previous article.
  • Price has climbed to the $580 area since and is testing the support turned resistance level.
  • Additional resistance is located around technical inflection points so a return in bearish pressure could be due.

Bitcoin price enjoyed a strong rally recently but could be ready to resume its slide soon if this area of interest holds.

Technical Indicators Signals

The 100 SMA is below the longer-term 200 SMA, confirming that the path of least resistance is still to the downside. In addition, bitcoin price is testing resistance at the 200 SMA dynamic inflection point, which might be enough to keep gains in check. If so, bitcoin could slide back to the previous lows around $560-565.

Stochastic is already indicating overbought conditions, also confirming that bears are about to take control of price action once more. If bulls put up a strong fight though, a move up to the next resistance around $590 could be in the cards.
