BTC/USD: Technical picture

From the technical point of view, BTC/USD returned to 38.2% Fibo retracement for the downside move from July 2019 high to December 2019 low. This area stopped the recovery twice: at the beginning of March and at the beginning of April. If it is cleared, the upside momentum will gain traction and take the price to $9,500.

On the downside, the key support is created by the short-term upside trend line on the approach to psychological $9,000. A sustainable move below this area will increase the selling pressure with the next focus on $8,900 reinforced by a combination of 1-hour SMA50 and SMA100.
