Bitcoin is currently trading above its first and second resistance levels and looks to be eyeing further gains. The coin broke through these levels along with a 50% retracement from its 13-week high low. Additionally, when the coin moved above $10,500 the coin crossed above its medium-term 40-week moving average.
In terms of momentum, RSI is pointing upwards and still has a lot of room to go before it reaches the overbought territory. For these reasons, it’s expected that the resistance levels at $10,399.73 and $10,647.08 will hold as future support levels. If the bulls have their way, we could see a test of the $11,000 psychological mark as the coin moves to its third resistance level.
If prices cross above the $11,000 mark it will be a 38.2% Fibonacci retracement from a 4 week high, thus making it a realistic goal. Beyond $11,000, if bitcoin reaches $13,159.18 the RSI will still not be overbought at 70%.
