The bitcoin price has been going up and down quite a bit over the past week. However, the technical indicators still point to $5,500 in the near future, just with a little more up-and-down action than anticipated. So strap in, because we’re going to hit some turbulence on the way up.
Bitcoin Price Technical Analysis
Prices started the 5th phase of a major, upwards Elliot Wave. This movement could bring the bitcoin price up to $5,500, breaking the current psychological barrier at $5,000.
The first support level in this movement stands at $3,000. However, the critical support zone that gives the strongest bullish signal is evaluated at $3,800.
According to Elliott Waves Theory the major 5th up-wave involves a new zig-zag movement, similar to what happened in previous waves during March and July.
This time, a similar movement could bring prices as high as $5,500, after which a sideways market would emerge in an ABC mini-phase. A rising channel backs this theoretical criteria, and indicators further suggest that quotes could keep climbing, going as far as to surpass the $5,000 reference.
A flag formation in the short-term could prices above the $5,000 resistance, where selling pressure could start a small correction before consolidating and continuing to rise.
According to indicators, the bitcoin price will likely stabilize near $5,500 in the short term. Japanese Candlestick Analysis supports that analysis, showing accumulation activity that will reinforce the general strength of the market.
