RSI Pattern

In yesterday’s analysis, BeInCrypto outlined a possible RSI pattern indicating that a bounce could soon transpire. The pattern showed bearish divergence, followed by a price and RSI drop slightly below 50, succeeded by a bounce. The 12-hour RSI suggests that the second path has a higher likelihood of being accurate. The RSI is currently steadily above the 50-line and the price has bounced, so the fractal is confirmed and the price will likely move upwards towards the next resistance area at $10,400 and possibly higher.
