  • Price just got rejected on its test of the channel resistance once more, putting it back on track towards testing support.
  • Technical indicators are suggesting that a pullback could take place but that the bullish trend could continue.

Bitcoin price could be ready for another bounce off the channel support as the bullish trend goes on.

Technical Indicators Signals

The 100 SMA is above the longer-term 200 SMA so the path of least resistance could still be to the upside. Also, the 100 SMA is near the channel support around $580, adding to its strength as a floor. A larger pullback could still bounce off the 200 SMA dynamic support at $575, but this would be the line in the sand for an uptrend continuation.

Stochastic is heading south from the overbought area to show that buyers are taking a break for now so bitcoin price could follow suit. If buyers are eager to hop back in, bitcoin could even push for an upside break of the channel resistance at $590 and a sharper climb.
