Bitcoin: USD/BTC (BTC=X) Strong Resistance Exists Around $5,800

Despite being caught in a bout of sideways trading yesterday, Bitcoin has been able to maintain its upwards momentum and has now surged above the $5,600 level. This upwards momentum has so far been relatively isolated to BTC, as most other cryptocurrencies have not yet surged.

Although Bitcoin may be in the process of gearing up for a big move to $6,000, one prominent analyst believes that BTC’s strongest level of resistance exists between $5,800 and $6,000, which may prove to be an arduous task for the cryptocurrency to break above.

Bitcoin (BTC) Rapidly Surges to $5,600

At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading up nearly 5% at its current price of just above $5,600 and is up from its daily lows of just above $5,300.

Today’s upwards surge marks a continuation of the upwards momentum Bitcoin first built earlier this month when BTC surged from the low-$4,000 region to highs of $5,400 – where the crypto found a significant amount of selling pressure that pushed it back down to roughly $5,000.

Since then, Bitcoin has been tepidly advancing higher, and is now nearing its next key battle zone that exists between $5,800 and $6,000, which may act as a strong level of resistance.

Overall, the bias in prices is: Upwards.

Momentum Indicators

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.

Stochastic Oscillator

One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 88.3182. This is an overbought reading. However, a signal is not generated until the Oscillator crosses below 80 The last signal was a sell 3 period(s) ago.

Relative Strength Index (RSI)

The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 72.27. This is where it usually tops. The RSI usually forms tops and bottoms before the underlying security. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a sell 13 period(s) ago.

Commodity Channel Index (CCI)

The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is 172.This is an overbought reading. However, a signal isn’t generated until the indicator crosses below 100. The last signal was a sell 3 period(s) ago.
