Bitcoin (BTC) price has risen after breaking above the $17,275 resistance level. The cryptocurrency is trading in the overbought zone of the market.
The current bullish momentum is expected to hit another hurdle at the high of $18,150. However, a break of the following resistance level by buyers argues for a continuation of the upward momentum. Bitcoin is expected to reach the highs of $20,000 and $21,500.
However, further gains in Bitcoin are doubtful as the market is approaching the overbought zone. Meanwhile, the Bitcoin price is capped between the moving average lines. Buyers are driving the BTC price to retest or break through the 50-day simple moving average (SMA). If buyers keep the price above the 50-day simple moving average, Bitcoin will resume its uptrend. BTC/USD will return to a rangebound move between the moving average lines where it will face rejection at the recent high.
For period 14, the Relative Strength Index is at 35, which is a result of Bitcoin's recent rise. On the daily chart, the price bars are back between the moving average lines and resuming the sideways pattern. Bitcoin price has crossed the Stochastic barrier of 80 on the daily chart and has entered the overbought zone.
Key resistance levels - $30,000 and $35,000
Key support levels - $20,000 and $15,000
The price of Bitcoin (BTC) is now fluctuating between the moving average lines. When the moving average lines are broken, the price of the cryptocurrency will enter a trend. The current rise is challenged by resistance at the recent high. Bitcoin will probably continue to move in a horizontal trend for a few more days.
