  • BTC/USD staged a nice recovery above the psychological $9,000.
  • The further upside is limited by the next resistance of $9,300.

BTC/USD is changing hands at $9,150 amid short-term bullish bias with shrinking volatility. The sustainable move above $9,000 improved the short-term technical picture, though $9,300 still blocks the way and separates BTC bulls from a sustainable recovery. BTC/USD has gained over 3.5% in recent 24 hours, while its market share increased to 65.9%

The intraday chart shows that the RSI stays flat in the overbought territory. It means that the coin may retreat to $9,000 before another growth attempt.
