- BTC/USD stays marginally $4,000.
- Bitcoin may be volatile before the upside trend resumes.
Bitcoin (BTC) settled marginally above $4,000 handle for the first time since March 20. The first digital coin gained nearly 3% on Wednesday amid strong bullish momentum across the board. BTC/USD is changing hands at $4,006 at the time of writing.
However, cryptocurrency experts warn investors a trend cannot change overnight, which means that we might still experience downturns before the bullish trend sets in.
“We can’t go from [crypto] winter to summer in a few days, probably not even in a few weeks. Spring is generally a time of volatility where hot and cold often surprise us. Though bitcoin has yet to snap the bear market, I do believe that crypto winter is now over and we are entering spring,” Mati Greenspan, senior market analyst at eToro commented.
Looking technically, BTC/USD is moving within an upside channel clearly visible on the 4-hour chart. The next resistance is created by $4,030-50 area which includes Wednesday’s high. It is followed by an upper line of the above-said channel ($4,156) and February’s high at $4,186.
On the downside, the local support comes at $3,975 (SMA50 4-hour). Once it is cleared, the downside may be extended towards $3,950 with the ultimate barrier at $3,900 created by a confluence of SMA200 (4-hour) and the channel support.
