APRIL BITCOIN PREDICTIONS!
To better assess future price fluctuations, we analyze the price of Bitcoin alongside the RSI and the MACD.
Similarly, the RSI and the MACD made the first high on Apr 3. However, they have proceeded to generate lower values. This is known as bearish divergence and often precedes price decreases.
Using these indicators, it is likely that the price will keep increasing at the rate predicted by the channel until a breakdown occurs.
To better determine reversal levels and support areas inside the confines of the channel, we incorporate support and resistance areas into the analysis.
The closest support area is near $5330 and €4700. We believe the price will eventually reach this area.
The closest resistance area is near $5650 and €5000. We believe this is the ceiling of the price and it is unlikely that the price will break out above this area.
Conclusion and Summary
Bitcoin is currently trading within an upward facing channel. Its price will likely fall to the support area traced within the channel. It is also possible the price may push toward the resistance area. It appears possible that price may first drop toward support and rebound toward resistance.
Despite short-term losses, however, we believe we believe Bitcoin is likely to make long-term gains. To learn more, read out 2019, 2020, and 5-year price predictions by clicking on the green button below:
