Technical analysis of Bitcoin on the evening of Tet 1

Bitcoin (BTC) is showing strong bullish signals on the intraday but has yet to break its short-term horizontal resistance levels.

Weekly Outlook

Bitcoin recovered slightly in the week of Jan. 23-30, creating a small bullish real body to fit in the previous week’s bearish candle.

Currently, both the RSI and the MACD are falling. The RSI, which is a momentum indicator, has fallen below 50 (red symbol). This is considered a sign of a downtrend. However, the last time the RSI dipped below this level, it made only one deviation (red circle) before resuming the uptrend.

Overall, the weekly timeframe shows a relatively bearish outlook.

Current trading model

The daily chart shows BTC trading within an ascending parallel channel since April 13, 2021. Pressure. Since then, prices have gone up.

The next resistance is found at $40,800, a level that previously acted as support.

The daily RSI will give a bullish signal once it breaks above the 30 oversold level (green circle).

Previously, the RSI had dipped below 30 before regaining the level twice:

  • March 2020 – Nearly 1,000% surge ahead
  • May 2021 – ahead of 122% increase

As such, this is a historically bullish sign and often signals that BTC has bottomed or is very close to a bottom.

Short term volatility

The two-hour chart shows that BTC has broken the symmetrical triangle (green symbol) and is in the process of confirming it as support.

If it manages to reclaim the $37,800 resistance area, the main target will be between $40,000 and $40,300. This target area is found using the 0.618 length of the previous up move (white) and the 0.618 Fib retracement resistance.

If BTC breaks this level, the next target will be found at $42,500.
