Bitcoin Price Analysis: $58,700 Level Crucial For BTC Breaking Out Upwards
Carrying out Bitcoin price analysis using the price action as displayed on the four-hour chart reveals that BTC/USD has formed a falling wedge. The BTC price is at $57,160 and must rise above the resistance line to rekindle hopes of an upward movement. A decisive bullish breakout will be achieved once Bitcoin price rises above the 100-period Simple Movign Average (SMA) at $57,769.
However, as things appear, BTC appears to be consolidating above the 50 SMA as validated by then flattening out of the Relative Strength Index (RSI) indicator. The Movign Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator is also flattening close to the zero line, adding credence to the consolidation.
