Bitcoin Analysis on Monday
Bitcoin’s price closed its day candle in green figures for the fourth time in five days and finished its daily session on Monday +$587.
The first chart we analyze today is the BTC/USD 1D chart below from RSibayan. BTC’s price rallied above $38,5k on Monday and bullish BTC traders are now hoping to really test the nearest overhead resistance at $40k. If bullish traders are able to actually penetrate the $40k level to the upside, they’ll shift their focus to their secondary target at the 0.236 fib level [$41,445.06].
Bears conversely are trying to defend the 0.236 fib and send BTC’s price back down to test the bottom of the current range at 0 [$32,933.33]. If bearish BTC traders succeed at breaking that level, the next major support for bullish traders isn’t until the $29k level which is where BTC’s price pivoted after making its initial top just below $65k in 2021.
