Bitcoin price prediction: BTC/USD consolidates gains above $8,100  - Bitcoin confluence

  • BTC/USD managed to move above critical $8,000 and settled above $8,000.
  • The next critical resistance awaits BTC bulls at $8,200.

Bitcoin (BTC) has settled above $8,100 after a strong rally on Wednesday. A sustainable move above this barrier has improved the technical picture, though further upside may be limited due to the lack of follow through, most likely, the price will spend some time in a new range before another leg higher.
