Bitcoin PRICE DAILY CHART (Sep 13 – Jan 29, 2020) Zoomed In

Bitcoin daily chart price 29-01-20 Zoomed in

Looking at the daily chart, we noticed on Jan 14 the price broke above the downtrend line originated from the Sep 6 high at $10.940 generating a bullish signal. Yesterday, the market rallied to a higher trading zone $9.080- $10.959 providing another bullish signal.

Based on these two signals, bulls could lead Bitcoin to the high end of the zone contingent on clearing the weekly resistance levels printed on the chart (zoomed in). Further close above this level may convince more bulls to join the market and push towards 13.853. That said, the weekly resistance levels underlined on the chart should be considered.

In turn, any close below the low end of the zone could reverse the market’s direction towards the low end of the zone. Yet, the daily and weekly support levels underscored on the chart would be worth monitoring.
