BTC Price Prepares For A Massive Breakout

At the time of writing, Bitcoin price is hovering around $61,765.88, around 5% short of the April 14 ATH. This is the last barrier that is standing in BTC’s way from exploding to new record highs.

From this outlook, if Bitcoin can manage a close above the ATH above $64,000, there is a potential for an ”exponential upside” as BTC price discovery faces relatively little resistance zones while bulls will attempt for a go at $100,000.

This bullish outlook is accentuated by the fact that the BTC/USD price is trading above the October rising trendline with the upsloping 50-, 200-, and 100-day Simple Moving Averages (SMAs) providing robust support at $48,790, $45, 095 and $44,599 respectively. Its relative strength index (RSI) is positioned at 75 in the overbought territory and the upward movement of the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator above the zero line in the positive region validate Bitcoin’s bullish outlook.

However, if things go awry for the Bitcoin bulls, we could see a retracement for BTC price below $60,000 or even $58,000 support walls should the bellwether cryptocurrency fail to sustain the current bullish momentum.
