Meanwhile, Bitcoin has corrected above the 50 Simple Moving Average (SMA) 1-hour and the 100 SMA 1-hour marginally above $5,150. A move that has opened the door for correction past $5,200. Besides, reclaiming the support at this level and trading above the range resistance, Bitcoin has increased its gains above $5,250.

Looking at the Relative Strength Index (RSI) at 70.00, Bitcoin is likely to test $5,300 in the short-term. The bullish momentum is also emphasized by the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) which is in an upwards direction at 19.19. The brief recovery has once again place Bitcoin in a bullish zone between $5,200 and $5,280. Consolidation is this range is likely to birth another bullish move that could touch $5,500 and correct past the 2019 high around $5,632.
