Bought the Dip? Bitcoin Price Rebounds Strongly

Bitcoin (BTC) price made a small correction yesterday as it dropped from $10,100 towards $9,800. However, today’s bullish momentum returned and the price bounced back above $10,000 to make a new 2020 high at $10,370.

So is the continuation of bullish momentum likely? Let’s look at the charts to see what could occur next.

Nevertheless, it’s a great sign that the $9,500 level was cleared as that was a significant resistance for upwards continuation. However, the next hurdle is the $10,400 area where Bitcoin currently finds resistance.

The range is defined by the resistance at $10,400 and the possible lower support zones at $9,500 and $9,800. If the price can’t break the $10,400 area then it will then likely pull back to retest this area.

Such a test would also mean that the price is going to consolidate for a while. Consolidation at this level would imply re-accumulation before the continuation of the upward trend.

If the price of Bitcoin can break through $10,400, the next resistances are found at $10,900 and $11,600-11,900 where there is also an open CME gap.

The chart is showing a clear support/resistance flip at $245 billion, after which the market capitalization continued to rally upwards. The next target area is found at $285 billion and $300 billion.

A retest of $260 billion was likely to occur, but the market didn’t give such a retest as $275 billion became support.

This gives the impression that…
