BTC/USD: Technical picture

Bitcoin has created a nice green candle on a daily chart, that took the price above the critical resistance level. The coin used $8,700 support (SMA200 daily) as a jumping-off ground to develop the upside momentum, which is now gaining traction. The next bullish barrier now comes at $9,250, which is created by a combination of SMA50 daily and 23.6% Fibo retracement for the downside move from July 2019 high to December 2019 low. Once it is out of the way, the upside is likely to gain traction with the next focus on $9,600 and, ultimately, $10,000.

On the downside, if the price slips back below $9,000, the bears will wrestle out the control over the situation very quickly. This development will serve as a major blow for the market sentiments as traders will interpret it as a sign of underlying weakness. The next important support comes at $8,700, which is followed by $8,300.
