In today’s Bitcoin price analysis, the coin surged above the $9,800 level before correcting lower. BTC is likely setting up for a break above the $10,000 and beyond.
Bitcoin Price Medium-Term Trend
After breaking above the $9,500 level, the price of Bitcoin (BTC) extended its upward move above the $9,700 level. Finally, the bulls pushed Bitcoin price above $9,800 and a new 2020 high was formed at $9,850.
However, at the time of writing this Bitcoin price analysis, the coin is consolidating gains above the $9,700 support area.
On the upside, if more buyers emerge, the crypto’s price will face resistance at the $9,900 level. A break above the $9,900 level could see the price surge towards $10,000. If there is a successful break above $10,000, it could initiate a strong rally to $10,400 or even $10,500 in the coming sessions.
Conversely, if there is an extended downside correction below $9,700, Bitcoin price might retest the $9,500 support. Any further downsides might discourage the bulls and the price could dip towards the $9,300 support level.
Meanwhile, the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) line and the signal line are above the zero line which indicates a buy signal.
