Bitcoin: USD/BTC (BTC=X) Bulls Targeting Key Resistance At $7,800
Bitcoin is on a sharp rise in 2020 with price breaching $7,500 USD. Bulls are regaining strength in the market with a third straight green candle on the daily charts setting bullish indicators that signal a possible test of the $7,800 resistance level. A call for entry?
Bitcoin (BTC) is finally taking shape as price shortly spiked above $7,500 USD in the past 24 hours. Following the $400 spike on Jan. 2, from $6,900 to over $7,300 USD (a spike heavily associated with the Iran-US tensions), BTC is showing prospects of a possible bullish momentum as price set higher lows.
Despite still being in a downtrend from the yearly high set in June 2019 at $13,900 USD, BTC/USD recording higher lows signals an upcoming reversal. The price has narrowed through the bearish channel on the higher timeframe channels and a break above the resistance provides a perfect time of entry.
Looking at the daily charts, a breakout above the wedge channel and major resistance looks set in stone as bulls gain strength in the market. Make no mistake though, the price is still in an extended downtrend since the Xi pump in late October. However, a period of sideways trading since late November and a rectangular formation on the chart signals a major breakout ensues on BTC/USD.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.
The projected upper bound is: 8,082.40.

Three white candles occurred in the last three days. Although these candles were not big enough to create three white soldiers, the steady upward pattern is bullish.
