July 8, 2020 1:07 pm
Bitcoin (BTC) price pushed above $9,300 within the last few hours, after struggling to hold the $9,300-$9,400 level for the past three days.
On July 6 and 7, The move was accompanied by a notable surge in purchasing volume which is exactly what is needed given that the Bitcoin price formed a tweezer top and rejected at $9,374.
Currently on June 1, the price trades slightly above the 20-MA and the descending trendline from the local high at $10,377, but Bitcoin’s failure to hold the $9,300 level means that an extension at $9,600 remains out of reach.
Aside from the need for Bitcoin price to set a higher limit above $9,374, the Volume Profile Visible Range (VPVR) shows a high volume at $9,450 so bulls are not out of the woods yet.
Traders will be watching to see if the price can secure a 4-hour close above $9,300 and if Bitcoin can push through the $9,450 level then a surge to $9,600 is likely. If Bitcoin price fails to hold $9,300, the 4-hour time frame shows support at $9,225 and below this at $9,000.
