Bitcoin is back up after a consolidation phase that lasted one week. Today, BTC reached a yearly high of $9,400 and according to several analysts and professional traders, could be preparing for new highs this upcoming week.

Bitcoin Technical Analysis

According to Thomas Lee, the CEO at Fundstrat Global, the bear market is over and investors could be about to “FOMO” in and take Bitcoin into a massive rally just like it happened in the 2017 bull market.

The sentiment on the market seems to have changed completely and as more crypto enthusiasts, such as Max Keiser, the host of RT’s Keiser Report, are speculating that the $20,000 milestone could soon be reached once again and Bitcoin could go even higher.

Jeremy Allaire, CEO of Circle, points out that the market could be preparing for a massive bull rally that will be triggered by Facebook’s launch of Libra and BTC could hit $10,000 as soon as June 21.

As the market valuation of Bitcoin rises to new yearly highs, the hash rate—the computing power consumed by the network—reached a new all-time high of 62 million terahashes per second on June 14. As more mining nodes become active, more security is added to the BTC blockchain reducing the risk for malicious attacks.

A similar pattern can be seen in the number of bitcoin transactions that are back above 1 million. According to Vortex, the host of the Bitcoin News Show on The World Crypto Network, and Mati Greenspan, Senior Market Analyst at eToro, these two network fundamentals are positive signs for the price of Bitcoin.

On the other hand, @XRPcryptowolf believes that the recent upswing is solely attributed to Tether. A sum of 100 million USDT were minted today that could have been used to pump the market. This year more than 1.5 billion Tethers have been added into the market, which is equivalent to around 9 million new USDT per day.

Whatever the reason might be for the rising valuation of Bitcoin, the bull trend seems to continue and @BigCheds, a technical analyst, suggests that a similar golden cross between the 8 and 34-week exponential moving average to the one on Oct. 2015, which initiated the rise to the high of $20,000 on Dec. 2017, could have developed once again signaling that a new bull market has started.

As a matter of fact, the sell signal given by the TD Sequential Indicator with a green nine candlestick on the 1-week chart seems to have been invalidated since the current week’s candlestick has managed become a bullish engulfing candlestick pattern trading above the previous high of $9,090.

A buy signal will be given under this timeframe by the TD Sequential Indicator once and if next week’s candlestick is a green two trading above the close of the current green one candlestick, which could set BTC up for another seven weeks of upward movement.

On the 3-day chart, the support trendline was able to hold the price of Bitcoin from a further drop. Now that BTC was able to break the $8,200 level of resistance, the next level of resistance is around $9,600. Breaking above this price barrier could take BTC up to $10,000 or $11,500 as explained by the economist Alex Krüger.

Based on the recent price action BTC has had during the last few days, the $9,600 resistance could act as a selling point for many investors triggering a new consolidation period between $8,200 and $9,600.

Bitcoin has reached the upper Bollinger band on the 1-day chart. This could indicate that a pullback to the middle band (20-day moving average) will come before the continuation of the bullish trend.

It will all depend if volume starts picking up since the recent move does not seem to be supported by strong buying pressure, or as Jacob Canfield, a technical trader, described it “dwindling volume.”

Overall Sentiment

The bullish trend seems strong as Bitcoin continues making new yearly highs and more Tethers are minted. Different sell signals based on technical indicators, such as the TD Sequential Indicator, have been invalidated adding more credibility to the idea that the bull market started.

As Facebook prepares to launch a new cryptocurrency, all eyes are on Bitcoin waiting to see if the “King of Cryptos” will be affected by the introduction of this new crypto.

@Rhythmtrader believes nothing will be able to stop Bitcoin since the last time it broke above $9,000, the big players in the tech and financial sector were not interested in it.

Bitcoin, currently ranked #1 by market cap, is up 2.59% over the past 24 hours. BTC has a market cap of $160.9B with a 24 hour volume of $23.33B.
