BTC/USD – Daily Chart

Buyers are unrelenting as they came back above the $7,000 resistance. The market has been holding since on Thursday, April 16. Can the bulls sustain hold above the resistance and continue its upward move? Certainly, buyers will face resistance if they push price above $7,200 and $7,400 levels. Earlier attempts by the bulls were scuttled by the bears. On each attempt the market has nosedived to $6,600 low.

Bitcoin will be making a remarkable move if those levels are crossed. Firstly, the uptrend will resume in earnest and its target price of $8,000 will be achieved. The current momentum will extend above the $9,000. Nonetheless, if BTC failed to rise above $7,400, the market will fall or be compelled to a sideways move. Bitcoin is above 50% range of the daily stochastic. It implies that it is in a bullish momentum. The market has already risen above $7,000 resistance. The bulls have continued to sustain current momentum as price is above the EMAs.
