BTC/USD pair trades in the upside range because the $9,000-$9,300 support holds. In the $9,000 region, BTC fluctuates between $9,300- $9,800 for the upside range trading. Therefore, we should expect a retest of the $10,000 overhead resistance.
Resistance Levels: $10,000, $11, 000, $12,000
Support Levels: $7,000, $6,000, $5,000
As the $9,000- $9,300 supports holds, the next move for Bitcoin will be at the $9,600 resistance. When the bulls clear this resistance, the market will move to retest the $9,800 and $9,880 resistances. The breaking of these levels will not be an easy task as the bears will strongly defend the resistance zones. Assuming the bulls fail to break the $9,800 resistance, BTC will retrace to $9,400 and resume a fresh uptrend. Nonetheless, since the $9,600 and $9,800 resistances have been tested several times, this will lead us to break out on the upside.
When the bulls break the $9,600 and $9,800 resistances, price will accelerate to retest the $10,000 overhead resistance. A breakout on the upside is expected as bulls have tested the resistance on several occasions. Conversely, if the $9,000- $9,200 support fails to hold, BTC will drop sharply to $8,500 low or $8,200 low. When BTC drops sharply, it is because it has been tested several times. Meanwhile, the market is still consolidating above $9,300. The Relative Strength Index period 14 is at level 47. The coin is still in the downtrend zone.
