Key Levels:
Resistance Levels: $10,000, $11, 000, $12,000
Support Levels: $7,000, $6,000, $5,000

BTC/USD – Daily Chart

Bitcoin has been trading in the upside range between $9,000 and $10,000 since May 14. During this period the bulls made concerted efforts to breach the $10,000 resistance level. The several attempts proved abortive. Each attempt is accompanied by an equivalent selling pressure. On May 20, the selling pressure extended to the following day as price reached a low of $8,815. Nonetheless, the support at $8,800 was held as bulls made correction upward. The selling pressure would have continued if the $8,800 support failed to hold.

As the bulls recovered, the upside range is likely to continue. Bitcoin has entered the upside range between $9,000 and $10,000. A possible retest of the overhead resistance is likely. On the downside, if the selling pressure has continued below $8,800, the market will drop to $8,200. Subsequently, BTC can fall to the $8,000 low. A break below $8,000 will signal the resumption of the downtrend. Nevertheless, BTC is below the 60 % range of the daily stochastic. This indicates a bearish momentum. However, this is contrary to price action which is indicating a bullish signal.
