BTC/USD daily chart

BTC/USD went up slightly from $9,060 to $9,091.25 in the early hour of Friday. This follows a hectic Thursday where Bitcoin crashed from $9,520 to $9,060, going below the SMA 20 curve, in the process. The MACD shows increasing bearish momentum, while the Elliott Oscillator has had five straight red sessions.

The bulls need to overcome resistance at $9,313.50, SMA 20 and 9,880.95 to reverse the ongoing bearish momentum. The bears should aim for support levels at $8,948.70 and $8,600 to continue the downward momentum.
