Bitcoin market update: BTC/USD over $500 reversal compels move above $10,000

  • Bitcoin fascinatingly corrects from $9,469 intraday low; stepping above $10,000.
  • Bitcoin has the potential to thrust through $11,200 resistance in the short-term.

Bitcoin just made a comeback above $10,000. As discussed in earlier published price analysis, the buyers are getting ready for revenge. The devastating plunge from $10,200 this week to lows around $9,469 seems to have been a necessary retracement. With fresh demand from investors waiting to ‘buy the dip,’ Bitcoin has the potential to thrust through $11,200 resistance in the short-term.

Technically Bitcoin is poised for movement to higher levels. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is currently above average. At the same time, the Moving Average Convergence Divergence currently at -129.45 is heading further towards the positive territory. The increasing positive divergence suggests that bulls are stamping down on the bears.
