At the time of writing, BTC/USD is changing hands at $10,300, having gained over 6% in the recent 24 hours and 3.45% since the start of Monday.

BTC/USD 1-hour chart

On the intraday charts, BTC/USD stays above the upper line of the 1-hour Bollinger Band at $10,295, which now serves as a local support. Once it is out of the way, the sell-off is likely to gain traction with the next focus on psychological $10,000. This barrier served as a former resistance. Now it may slow down the bears and create a new bullish impulse.
