BTC/USD increased by a total of 2.49% today to reach a high of around $8,976 as the buyers start to take control. The crucial thing to look out for is the closing price for Bitcoin.

More so, Bitcoin could face a setback for the moment but the coin may likely have a continuation bullish trend in the near term and a price rally could help it hit its monthly high again. Currently, Bitcoin is trading around $8,932 below the 9-day and 21-day moving averages. Any bearish movement could bring it to the support levels of $7,600, $7,400, and $7,200 respectively.Moreover, as the coin may be planning for a reversal, the daily chart reveals that the bulls are still in control of the market. Meanwhile, the $8,800 and $8,900 level may remain as potential resistance levels if the $8,700 level holds. However, a strong bullish movement might take the price to $10,000, $10,200, and $10,400 levels. But presently, the technical indicator stochastic RSI stays within the oversold zone.BTC/USD Medium-Term Trend: Bearish (4H Chart)Looking at the 4-Hour chart, the bears now dominates the market by trading around the 9-day and 21-day moving averages at $8,903.
