Bitcoin price prediction: BTC/USD bulls snatch back the initiative  - Bitcoin confluence

  • BTC/USD is recovering from the recent lows.
  • The critical resistance is seen on approach to $10,500.

Bitcoin (BTC) has bottomed out at $9,894 on Wednesday and recovered above $10,300 during early American hours. While there are no clear reasons for the upside movement, the recovery may be triggered by technical and speculative factors as an inability to move below $10,000 discouraged short-term sellers.
