Technical Indicators Signals

Using the Fib tool on the latest breakout move shows that the 38.2% correction level lines up with a broken short-term support around $373. the 61.8% Fib is close to the 200 SMA, which typically acts as a dynamic resistance level.

However, the 100 SMA is still above the 200 SMA so the path of least resistance might be to the upside and bitcoin price could go for another round of gains. A downward crossover appears to be brewing before more sellers could join the fold.

Stochastic is on the move up so bitcoin price might follow suit. RSI is making its way out of the oversold region, also indicating that buyers could gain traction and push bitcoin price further north to the 100 SMA resistance around $380.
