BTC Price: Technical Indicators
The price of BTC is firstly analyzed alongside the RSI and the MACD, and secondly alongside the 10- and 20-period moving averages (MA) below:
On Jun 4, the Bitcoin price (BTC) made a low of $7770.00. It continued to decrease and made a lower low of $7501.00 the next day.
During this period, the MACD and RSI generated higher values. This is known as bullish divergence and often precedes price increases. In the case of BTC, it preceded the increase toward current prices.
Furthermore, on Jun 5, a bullish cross between the 10- and 20-period moving averages occurred.
This is often an indication that an uptrend has begun. However, both these occurrences are only visible in short-term time-frames.
We stated in our previous analysis that we believe that the BTC price is likely in a long-term downward move.
Therefore, this increase is only a short-term increase inside a long-term downward move.
The closest support area is now found near $7500. While it is not very significant, it provided strength for the price to begin an upward move. This can be seen by the bullish hammer formed when the price reached this support area.
The closest resistance area is found near $8200. We do not believe that the Bitcoin price will break out above this area.
The Bitcoin price is trading close to the support line of a descending channel. The technical indicators point to a short-term increase.
