Bitcoin daily chart price 22-06-20 Zoomed in

On June 10, Bitcoin created a lower high at 10,002 highlighting bull’s hesitation to control the price action. Last week, the cryptocurrency failed to decline to the lower trading zone signaling bear’s weakness at this stage.

A close above the 50-day moving average would generate a bullish signal and may trigger a rally towards the high end of the current trading zone $9,080 - $10,507. Any further close above this level would end the sideways move and could extend the rally towards $11,093.

In turn, a close below the low end of the zone reflects bulls’ weakness and could send BTC/USD towards $7,824. Any further close below that level could embolden bears to press towards $6,540.
