If the bulls break above $18,800, a rally above $19,000 is likely

Following the recent breakdown on November 26, buyers have been attempting to push BTC to the previous high above $19,400. Bitcoin has earlier plunged to $16,400 for failing to breach the $19,400 resistance.

Traders believed that a repeat of the price action of December 11, 2017, may occur. In that year, Bitcoin rallied to $20,000 but dropped sharply after failing to break above the recent high. In the price action of November 26, 2020, BTC plunged to a low of $16,400 low but the candlesticks with long tails are pointing to the support level. 

The candlesticks with long tails are indicating that there is buying pressure at lower price levels. Nevertheless, the downtrend has been terminated as bulls buy the dips to push the price upward. Nevertheless, the bulls are retesting the $18,800 resistance and trying to break above it. Today, if the bulls break above $18,800, a rally above $19,000 is likely. However, if buyers fail to break the resistance, Bitcoin will be compelled to a sideways move.

Bitcoin indicator reading

After the recent breakdown, the 21-day SMA is acting as support as BTC resumes a fresh uptrend. The coin has also fallen from the overbought region of the market. It is above the 40% range of the daily stochastic. This indicates that it has bullish momentum. 


Key Resistance Zones: $13,000, $14,000, $15,000

Key Support Zones: $7,000, $6,000, $5,000
