On the other hand, the 4-hour chart illustrates a sustained technical picture. Applied technical indicators like the Relative Strength Index (RSI) and the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) suggest that BTC’s upward momentum still has strength. The RSI is holding ground at 80 while the MACD at +278. A positive divergence in the MACD hints of the higher presence of buyers and increasing buying entries.

In the event $10,500 support gives in to selling pressure, $10,250 is in line to offer support. The 100 Simple Moving Average and the 50 SMA will also come in handy in case of extended declines. The major support lies between $9,500 and $9,250.
