BTC/USD 4-hour chart

Bitcoin struggles to find any momentum on Friday as it languishes under the 10K zone unable to mount an attack on the psychological zone, for now. On the technical front, the price is still in an uptrend but the wave high of 10428.00 will need to be broken for the trend to continue.

The indicators are slightly mixed, On the daily chart, the Relative Strength Index is making lower high waves while the price makes higher highs. This is called bearish divergence and can indicate that the bulls are running out of steam. The MACD is turning positive as the histogram breaks into the green and the signal lines are still above the mid-zone. 

Lastly, another positive sign is the fact that the price is trading above the 55 and 200 moving averages. There was a bullish cross on 13th May and the market still seems to be respecting the move higher. But the bulls will need to take out 10428.00 for the trend to continue in the right direction.
