Bitcoin price analysis: BTC/USD big bullish pennant subject to potential breakout

  • Bitcoin price on Wednesday is nursing losses of some 0.25% in the second part of the day.
  • BTC/USD price action has formed a bullish pennant pattern structure via the 60-minute chart.


Bitcoin price well into the second half of the session Wednesday is trading with losses of some 0.25%, as the price consolidates. BTC/USD is moving within a bullish pennant pattern structure, subject to a potential breakout.

Price action has been consolidating within the noted structure since 13th May, after a strong run of gains over the past few days. Bitcoin managed to hit the highest levels that have been seen since July 2018, during the bear market at the time.

The immediate resistance can be seen at $8000, the upper acting trend line of the pennant. Market bulls are taking a breather following the drive higher. There appears to be just one major barrier seen from $8000-8500 price range, ahead of $10,000.
