This week, Bitcoin has gained an amazing 22 percent as it confronts the $40K resistance level. As previously stated, bitcoin’s price has been fluctuating between $30K and 42K for the past two months. This week ($41.3K according to Bitstamp), it reached its highest level since June 15th.
BTC has had a good week after breaking out of a descending wedge pattern and ultimately breaking through both the 20 and 50 day moving average lines. This was the first time since early May that the cryptocurrency has traded above the 50-day MA. The price increase is mostly contained within a well-constructed ascending price channel.
Despite the bulls’ positive momentum, BTC is currently testing substantial resistance in the $40-42K level, which is the upper limit of the previously indicated range. Bitcoin hasn’t been able to end a weekly candle over $39K since the meltdown on May 19th. As of writing these lines, the region also includes the 100-day moving average line, which is currently around $40.3K.
Furthermore, after eight consecutive green daily candles, it appears that Bitcoin may need to cool off a bit, as bearish divergence is seen on the 4-hour chart, which is the short-time frame.
However, if BTC manages to break through the $40-42K resistance region with a daily and/or weekly close above it, the road to $50K for BTC might be extremely short.
