A reversal has occurred above $5,800 and BTC/USD is trading around $5,844 while supported by the 100 SMA as well as the EMA200. The brief flash drop caused the RSI to dive towards the oversold but reversed on touching 30.00. The MACD, on the other hand, had hit levels around +62.88 is increasing the divergence in the negative region to show that bears are gaining traction.

Technically, Bitcoin path of least resistance is upward sideways. The support atv$5,800 will stay put to the close of the session today while $5,900 is likely to be the barrier to the upside. It is now clear that the journey to $6,000 was not going to be that smooth.
