  • BTC on the verge of witnessing a golden cross pattern.
  • Immediate term, slight resistance abound, may break on the upside.

Bitcoin, the poster boy of cryptocurrencies, is on the verge of witnessing a golden-cross technical pattern, which is bullish for the prices, even as in the immediate term there is a resistance that might try and halt the   party for time being.

BTC/USD is up two cents of a percent at $5,301 and trading in less than 1 percent range for the day, not a hallmark of a breakout – thanks to a key resistance on the hourly chart of the largest crypto that has been acting tough all this month.

Perhaps golden crossover would prove a key to breaking this resistance on the hourly. A golden cross occurs when 50 days SMA crosses past 200 days SMA on the upside, opposite of the Death cross which is bearish for the prices.
