  • The critical resistance of $10,000 stays untouched so far.

Bitcoin (BTC) has extended the recovery from the intraday low into the US opening. At the time of writing, BTC/USD is changing hands above $9,700, mostly unchanged both on a day-to-day basis and since the beginning of Monday. On the intraday charts, BTC is supported by 1-hour SMA50 (currently at $9,600), while the ultimate bullish target is created by a psychological $10,000.

The short-term momentum remains bullish, with the RSI on the intraday charts pointing to the North, which means, the coin may continue the recovery.
