Indicators Of Technology
To reach the First Major Resistance Level at $30,045, BTC will have to break past the $29,754 pivot.
To break clear of Saturday’s high of $29,954, BTC will need the support of the entire crypto market.
The Second Major Resistance Level at $30,241 and resistance at $30,500 will be tested if the rally continues. The price of $30,728 is the third primary resistance level.
The First Major Support Level at $29,554 would be tested if the pivot was not moved back through. BTC should avoid sub-$29,000 levels unless there is another prolonged sell-off. The downside should be limited by the Second Major Support Level of $29,267.
It’s a negative indicator based on the EMAs and the 4-hourly candlestick chart (below). Bitcoin is currently trading at $30,051 below the 50-day EMA. The 50-day EMA distanced itself from the 100-day EMA. The 100-day EMA has retreated from the 200-day EMA, and BTC has become bearish.
A break over the 100-day EMA, which is now at $30,260, would support a rise towards $31,000.
