BTCUSD – Daily Chart

The daily chart has revealed that BTC/USD is back to trading above $5,000 following a bearish correction to levels under $4,500. Today, the Asian session is characterized by a renewed upward trend whereby BTC/USD has recovered from intraday lows at $4,889 to highs around $5,456.

Moreover, if the market makes a quick turn to the south, the BTC/USD price may likely drop to $4,000 and should this support fails to contain the sell-off, traders may see a further roll back to $3,800, $3,600 and critically $3,400. The stochastic RSI suggests an upward movement for the coin as the signal lines move towards the north.
