BTC/USD Long-term Trend: Bullish (Daily Chart)

Key levels:

Resistance Levels: $10,700, $10,900 $11,100

Support Levels: $8,600, $8,400, $8,200

BTCUSD – Daily Chart

In a couple of weeks ago, BTC/USD has fallen as a result of a downward correction of the medium-term bear, which is steadily closing the vital support of $9,000. The market appears bearish on the daily chart after testing the $9,424 level today. The Bitcoin (BTC) is facing a slight drop after testing the immediate resistance of $9,948.98, with the selling pressure remaining strong.

However, if the price increases and Bitcoin manages to close well above the $9,700, we could see an upward price explosion, which could reach $10,000. A further increase could also reduce the price to $10,700, $10,900, and $11,000 resistance levels, a price at which traders could begin to consider an upward trend for the market.

Meanwhile, a break at the lower boundary of the ascending channel could lower Bitcoin price in long-term supports at $8,600, $8,400, and $8,200 respectively. The technical indicator RSI (14) is seen moving above 60-level, which is a good sign for the upward movement.
