Bitcoin price technical picture

In the meantime, Bitcoin has formed an inverted head-and-shoulder pattern with a breakout move impending towards $6,400 (broken support). There was a correction from the losses witnessed earlier in the week but BTC/USD upside was capped at $6,330. Faint corrections with the highs on Wednesday found a support at $6,290.

The reaction to the inverted head-and-shoulder pattern has broken above the moving average and tested the resistance at $6,380. The 100 SMA is holding tight at the moment while technical indicators show strong buy signals during the Asian trading hours. The MACD at 16.84 is a viable signal for the bulls while the RSI has retracted from the overbought to show that the bears are present as well. The battle for the bulls is to take the price above $6,400 and preferably establish a higher support.
