Bulls have successfully defended Bitcoin support levels

Bitcoin has remained stable after it turned down on April 30, because of the bulls’ inability to sustain the uptrend above $9,200. The market retraced to $8,597 low and resumed fluctuation between $8,500 and $9,500.

The bulls have successfully defended the support levels between $8,400 and $8,600. It is believed that a break below $8,400 will propel the downtrend to extend to $7,800 low. The king coin appears to be trading near the resistance zone. 

Yesterday, BTC rebounded twice above $9,000 resistance and twice the bulls were repelled. Price is retracing to the support above $8,800. Bitcoin is still being resisted from $9,000 and $9,200. Buyers have failed to break the resistances on a normal daily purchase of Bitcoin. Perhaps, a rebound above $8,800 support will propel price to break through the resistances of $9,000 and $9,500. Bitcoin will rise to $9,500 and $10,000 if the bulls scale above the resistances.
