What's on this page

Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC) Price Forecast, Analysis and Chart:

  • Bitcoin battles with $9,000 level.
  • Cryptocurrencies rally across the board.

If you are interested in trading the cryptocurrency market, we have produced a Day Trading Guide to Bitcoin and Other Cryptocurrencies to help you better understand this highly volatile asset class.

Cryptocurrency Rally Continues

The two-month cryptocurrency rally continues Friday with all major coins/tokens in positive territory. Market leader Bitcoin has just touched the $9,000 level and made its highest level since November 11, while Ethereum is back at levels last seen two months ago.

Bitcoin Chart Exposes Key Reversal Signals – BTC/USD Price Forecast

Bitcoin’s latest run, while fueling bullish sentiment, needs to break a couple of important technical levels to turn the chart further positive. A break of the 200-day moving average, currently around $9,100, would confirm short-, medium- and long-term positive sentiment, while a close above $9,930 would break a series of lower highs and add further bullish sentiment. Initial support either side of $8,500.

As always with this sector, sharp moves either way can occur in a short timeframe, and with the market trading 24/7, care should be taken over the weekend.
