Bitcoin price analysis

BTC/USD is trading under the moving averages as well as the two-month ascending trendline. Former support levels have quickly been turned into resistance zones. Besides, the prevailing momentum according to the RSI signals that movements north would continue to be scarce in the sessions to come. The RSI is holding the ground above $9,000 but remains relatively horizontal with the motion at 34. The 200-day SMA at $8,710 and the 50-day SMA at $9,306 are key resistance zones.
