Bitcoin price prediction: BTC/USD may break free from range to the downside - Bitcoin confluence


  • BTC/USD consolidates in a tight range around $9,500.
  • The strong resistance above the current price makes the bull's life harder.

Bitcoin (BTС) is oscillating in a tight range marginally below $9,500 handle. While the first digital asset managed to recover from the weekend low, the upside momentum remains to be weak, which makes it vulnerable to further sell-off. 

Low trading activity and the lack of new catalysts, keep Bitcoin and all major altcoins in the ranges. However, this may be the calm before the storm.
