Bitcoin's technical picture
From the intraday perspective, the initial support awaits BTC/USD on approach to $9,550. This area is strengthened by a confluence of SMA100 (Simple Moving Average) and SMA50 on 1-hour chart. A sustainable move below this handle will allow for an extended sell-off with the next focus on $9,500 (the lower line of 1-hour Bollinger Band) and psychological $9,000.
On the upside, we will need to see a sustainable move above $9,800 with the intraday high located just above this handle. Once above, the price of the first digital coin will proceed to critical $10,000 strengthened by SMA100 4-hour.
