Good news, chronic bitcoin price watchers: it looks like the dip is finally over. BTC has consolidated just above $4,000, with bullish consensus building to push it even higher.
Bitcoin Price Technical Analysis
With the markets following the 5th phase of a major, upward-moving Elliot Wave, the bitcoin price could reach $5,500. If this happens, a major psychological barrier at $5,000 would be broken. With that barrier gone we may see a flag formation emerge, creating a sideways market until a long-term rally to $9,000.
According to Elliott Wave theory, the major 5th wave is growing upwards, bringing new zig-zag movements.
These zig-zag patterns create small profit-taking activity that does not drastically affect the price. At the same time, those patterns allow new investors to enter the market, building momentum for a coming rally.
While this activity unfolds, a sideways market may emerge as part of an “ABC” phase. Here we can find the first support level at $3,800, a well-established congestion area.
A flag formation broke upwards, sending the bitcoin price beyond the $5,000 resistance. Here, a short-term correction could occur before the bulls consolidate and continue pushing towards the long-term objective at $9,000.
A triangle figure has appeared in the chart with a technical objective at $5500. This indicator suggests that significant profit taking could occur at the $5500 level. From there, the bitcoin price may consolidate and initiate a new rally.
Additionally, negative coverage in the media may inform a large accumulation strategy, from which a major, price doubling rally could emerge upon the circulation of positive information.
