Bitcoin price embarks into  discovery phase

Bitcoin price action has been contained inside of an ascending parallel channel for nearly three months. This technical is obtained by connecting the two higher highs and three higher lows using trend lines.

However, the recent spike in bullish momentum has created a new all-time high at $62,741.

In doing so, the Momentum Reversal Indicator’s breakout line at $61,185 was a crucial level preventing the pioneer cryptocurrency from venturing higher. However, the recent spike in buying pressure has undone this level, suggesting a sharp rise in the market value of BTC.

The potential targets that bulls are eyeing include the channel’s middle line at $68,145 and the 141.4% Fibonacci extension level at $75,291.

Supporting this optimistic outlook for the flagship cryptocurrency is the recently spawned buy signal from the SuperTrend indicator.

If BTC fails to produce a decisive daily candlestick close above the breakout line at $61,780, a retracement to the ascending channel’s lower trend line at $58,640 seems plausible.

A breakdown of the said level might trigger a 6% sell-off to the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement level at $54,798.
