Bitcoin Price Analysis: Bitcoin halving dilemma surge to $19,800 or nosedive to $4,000 – Confluence Detector
Bitcoin is currently exchanging hands at $8,683 at the time of writing. The price has recovered slightly from the dip to $8,100. An intraday high has been achieved at $8,812 (short term resistance level). Glancing further up $9,000 is the next resistance; that if broken could pave the way for the leg up to the critical resistance at $10,120 (previous week high).
In the event $10,120 is broken riding on high trading volume, the following target is $10,650 (a very strong seller congestion area). Most traders anticipate that if $10,650 is broken, rally to new all-time highs would come into play.
On the flip side, if the rally is rejected at $10,120 post-halving, Bitcoin is likely to spiral under the recent support at $8,100 and refresh levels in the $7,000’s range. It is vital that support at $7,800 holds for a bullish scenario. However, if broken BTC/USD could nosedive to $6,000 and you can expect a retest of $5,200 and $4,000 support areas respectively.
In the meantime, reward halving is to take place in less than 24 hours. Bitcoin dumped to $8,100 two days before the event; the fall is likely to allow more people to join the market. However, resistance under $9,000 continues to limit the bulls’ efforts.
