BTC/USD Daily Chart
BTC/USD is consolidating beyond $13,000 after trading down from today’s high of $13,863. However, BTC may resume the recovery after a short-lived correction as the selling pressure will contend with a cluster of support around the $13,000 and buyers confluence zone. This area serves as a demand zone before the lift-off to $13,863.
A daily close over $13,250 may signify the end of the Bitcoin consolidation phase and the start of a new bullish cycle, from a technical perspective. If this prior resistance is validated as support, on the path to $14,000, there may be nothing to deter BTC. A price correction back beneath the $13,000 support area may present such an opportunity for short term sellers in the coming days.
