From the daily chart, we notice on Dec 18 BTC/USD rebounded from the low end of current trading zone $6.435 - $9.080 reflecting seller’s hesitation at this stage. Since then, sellers have pulled back and this generated some reversal/bullish signals.

A bullish divergence between the price and RSI as the price created a low with a lower low meanwhile the oscillator created low with a higher low. On Jan 6, Bitcoin closed above the 50-Day average producing another bullish signal. On Friday, the price rallied above the neckline of double bottom pattern located at $7.765 eyeing a test of $9.000 handle.

A close above the high end of the zone, opens the door for buyers to take the lead and push BTC/USD towards $10.959. Nevertheless, the weekly resistance levels underlined on the chart (zoomed in ) should be considered as some traders could exit/ join the market at these points.

On the other hand, any failure in closing below the high end may reveres the price’s direction towards the low end of the zone. Although, the daily and weekly support levels and area marked on the chart should be monitored.
