Bitcoin is on the brink of breaking out following a two-week consolidation period that saw the largest crypto hover between $27,000 support and resistance around $29,000, as established on Tuesday. With higher support at $28,100 now intact, it could only be a matter of time before Bitcoin price climbs to $30,000.

Traders Sit Tight as Optimism Builds for A Massive Bitcoin Price Breakout

According to Santiment, traders and investors “started the week with a big uptick in optimistic keywords like bullish, buying or bottom” as they expected BTC to keep trending north, with $30,000 as the short-term target.

Michaël van de Poppe, a renowned analyst told his over 652k followers on Twitter on Wednesday morning that Bitcoin is on the path to $30,000. In his opinion, BTC holding onto the “Crucial area at $27,900 held and breakout overnight upwards to $28,700” with the consolidation allowing it to build momentum ahead of the next breakout to $30,000.

Investors and selected analysts believe Bitcoin price has officially bottomed and this may be the beginning of a bull run. Captain Faibik asked his 54k followers on Twitter, is “a Bitcoin bull run officially starting with a daily close above the SMA500?”

“Historical Trends suggest that Bitcoin has Experienced Significant Bullrun after Breaking out above the SMA500,” Faibik added in the tweet accompanied by a Bitcoin price chart.

Assessing Bitcoin Price Profitability

Bitcoin price is trading in a narrow range between $27,000 and the seller congestion around $29,000. Last night’s rebound from support at $28,100 allowed bulls to launch another attack on the resistance area at $29,000.

The 50-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) (line in blue) strengthened the buyer congestion at $28,100, as bulls took back the reins.

Although a break and hold above $29,000 was yet to be achieved, Bitcoin is trading at $28,555, a position that might call more retail traders into the market to capitalize on the anticipated move beyond $30,000.

The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator upholds the positive outlook for Bitcoin price with a recently sent buy signal. This call to investors and traders to buy Bitcoin manifested as the MACD line in blue crossed above the signal line in red.

Three key levels may determine how Bitcoin price concludes this week’s trading, with a break above $29,000 likely to propel BTC above $30,000. Meanwhile, support at $28,100, made relevant by the presence of the 50-day EMA, is the pivotal level.

In other words, if Bitcoin does not break out to $30,000, it may be forced to continue with the consolidation around the pivotal level to give time for bulls and bears to resolve the stalemate.

On the downside, trading below $27,000 may trigger a sell-off as retail investors hold onto their positions in anticipation of a breakout to a $30,000 rush to protect their capital. That said, we cannot ignore the possibility that Bitcoin may drop to the 200-day EMA (line in red), slightly above $26,000.

If push comes to shove, the largest cryptocurrency could extend the dip to $24,000.

Bitcoin price shows a slightly different picture on the daily time frame chart with influence from bears likely to grow if it does not break and settle above $29,000 soon. The MACD dons a minor sell signal, which may not negatively impact BTC price unless the uptrend gets rejected from $29,000.

The On-Balance-Volume indicator reveals a gradually improving inflow volume at 1.246 million at the time of writing. If money into the BTC markets increases to significantly overwhelm the outflow volume, momentum would build behind Bitcoin and support the coveted upswing.

The crypto fear & greed index, presented by shows the market sentiment at 62, in the greed area of the chart as shown below. This index tracks and analyzes “the current sentiment of the Bitcoin market” on a scale of 0 to 100, where zero represents “extreme fear” while 100 represents “extreme greed.”

With the fear & greed index holding at 62 in early April, it implies that sentiment is positive, bolstered by the fear of missing out (FOMO). In other words, investors are likely to keep buying, afraid to miss out on the uptrend market, thus driving Bitcoin price higher.
