BTCUSD – Daily Chart

A couple of days ago, BTC/USD blasted over $1,000 to a high of $13,200 and has reignited interest in the crypto market once again in a major way. Meanwhile, a new 2020 high has been set on the BTC/USD pair, but a higher peak over the 2019 top has yet to be reached. However, the leading cryptocurrency by market cap has just set a new all-time high – a stage where it has not reached since the beginning of the year.

What to Expect from Bitcoin (BTC)

In the early Asian session, the Bitcoin price faces a strong rejection after touching the daily high of $13,037, resulting in a sharp decline towards $12,700 again. At the time of writing, BTC/USD is trading down marginally at its current price of $12,956. The recent bearish movement has not been enough to push Bitcoin below the crucial level of $12,700. Nevertheless, the support level of $12,500 could be the next logical target if this continues to hold strong.

However, the entire market trends next may likely depend largely on the supports of$12,300, $12,100, and $11,900 respectively. Meanwhile, until buyers begin to regain some control, its technical outlook remains somewhat unclear and may slightly favor the bears. The resistance levels to watch are $13,800, $14,000, and $14,200 as the RSI (14) remains within the overbought zone.

BTC/USD Medium – Term Trend: Bullish (4H Chart)

According to the 4-hour chart, after touching the $13,022 resistance level, the Bitcoin price dropped slightly to touch the low of $12,722 below the 9-day moving average. Meanwhile, should the price continue to drop further and move below the 21-day moving average, it could reach the support levels at $12,700 and below.
