Bitcoin (BTC) Price Hits Resistance, Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Soars

Bitcoin (BTC) Price Hits Resistance, Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Soars

Nick Cawley, Strategist

Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash News and Talking Points

- Bitcoin has rallied around 45% this month.

- Fibonacci resistance may prove troublesome but the move higher is expected to continue.

Bitcoin’s Recent Upswing May be Slowed in the Short-Term

Bitcoin is currently trading around $9,300 – up from an April 1 low of $6,438 –and is homing in on the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level at $9,385, a resistance that could slow down its recent rise. On a positive note, BTC is back above the uptrend channel started from the February 6 low and is also trading above the 200-day moving average, both bullish set-ups for the token. On the upside the December 22 swing-low at $10,800 and the 50% retracement level at $11,367 are the next technical targets.

We discuss a range of cryptocurrency charts and price set-ups at our Weekly Cryptocurrency Webinar every (Wednesday) at 12:00.
