Bitcoin (BTC/USD) Poised for Fresh Highs or Major Reversal?

Bitcoin (BTC/USD) Poised for Fresh Highs or Major Reversal?

Tammy Da Costa, Analyst

Bitcoin (BTC/USD) Forecast:

  • Bitcoin regulatory concerns come under rigorous scrutiny
  • BTC/USD poised for fresh high?
  • Rising Channel keeps bulls and bears at bay, for now

Bitcoin prices remain under rigorous scrutiny by global regulators who continue to warn investors about the inherent risks pertaining to major cryptocurrencies. However, despite rising contention between Bitcoin enthusiasts and Central Banks, BTC/USD bulls remain optimistic as key market players continue to express interest in adopting the virtual currency as an alternative method of payment.

Meanwhile, the anonymous nature of cryptocurrencies has been met with opposing views as fraudulent activity remains a primary concern for Central Banks worldwide, raising speculation that more stringent regulations and tighter restrictions may be implemented in the foreseeable future.

Bitcoin (BTC/USD) Technical Analysis

After peaking at an all-time high of $61,760 earlier this month, prices temporarily retraced to critical support, before upward momentum prevailed. But after breaking above prior resistance of $54,527, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level of the March 2021 major move, prices surged once again, with the formation of an ascending channel suggestive that BTC/USD may be poised for a new high while the Relative Strength Index (RSI) on the weekly chart remains above 70, with Divergence indicating that the upward trend may be losing momentum.
