Bitcoin in a big correction
Bitcoin has come off lows that were around $9,100 to its present price near the $12,000 level a recovery that confirms the position of the bulls. Last week BTC struggled with resistance at $9,800, $10,000 and $10,500. Then there was a compelling break through $11,000 an apparent signal for more buyers to jump in and propelling the price towards the$12,000 level.
The price reached a high of $11,871 and has since slid to $11,766. However all technical indicators point in a strong bullish direction.
The bullish outlook
The present value of BTC is about moving averages as well as the ascending trendline. The short-term 50 simple moving average (SMA) 4-hour double-cross above the 100 SMA 4-hour shows the growing momentum for the rally. Higher consolidation is likely if the price rise fails to break through the $12,000 hurdle.
Other indicators such as the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) and the Relative Strength Index (RSI) also are bullish. The MACD has continued rising even when the recovery stall. The RSI is leveling within the overbought which emphasizes the present of bullish buyers in the market.
