Regarding the short-term predictions, market observers could benefit from watching a handful of key price levels, noted analysts.
“Persistent buying momentum (at the moment, it looks like RSI will push towards 80) has allowed bitcoin to retest/break key resistance of $8442 and is currently completing a Kumo breakout,” said Brookins.
“If that holds, it would confirm a resumption of the bull trend,” he continued.
