  • Bitcoin price consolidation above $10,000 is key for the next leg towards $11,000.
  • Bitcoin’s sideways action is likely to take center stage in Monday’s trading sessions.

Bitcoin had a very rewarding weekend as it jumped above the $10,000 milestone. The bull rally extended toward $10,200 but formed a high at $10,195 (new 2020 high). The approach to the ‘moon’ appears to have hit a snag as the price reversed towards $10,000. However, BTC seems to have found balance above the $10,000 support and is now trading at $10,107. Bulls are working hard to push BTC back into the green thereby correcting the subtle 0.7% loss on the day.

Bitcoin price technical picture

Bitcoin is in the hands of the bulls in spite of the failure to break above $10,200. The RSI’s sideways movement above 70 suggests that action will be limited to the upside. However, downward movements are also unlikely. Therefore, consolidation is the most probable in the near term. Apart from the support at $10,000, other key areas are $9,750, the 50SMA on the 4-hour chart, the 100 SMA, the main trendline (black continuous) and $9,000. The consolidation above $10,000 is key for the run-up to $10,000.
