Currently, BTC is consolidating horizontally between strong resistance and support levels. The MACD shows sustained bullish momentum as the price looks to break in the $16,000 zone. Looking at the IOMAP, one can see that the resistance faced by the buyers isn’t as strong as the support wall holding it up. Upon break past the $15,600 resistance, the next viable barrier lies at $16,500.

In fact, not only is the chart on the verge of flashing a sell signal with a green-nine candlestick in the TD sequential indicator, but the relative strength index (RSI) is on the brink of entering the overbought zone. Looking at the price history in this time frame, there looks to be a strong support at $9,900.
