Bitcoin’s Sideways Drift Has Shifted Price Recovery Target to $3.7K

View Bitcoin’s six-day-long consolidation near $3,600 has neutralized the bullish view put forward by a falling wedge breakout confirmed on Feb. 8. The follow-through to that bullish breakout has been extremely weak with prices unable to challenge the highs above $3,700 hit last Friday. A move above $3,711 (Feb. 8 high) would validate the bullish outside reversal candle seen in the 3-day chart and open the doors to the psychological hurdle of $4,000. That looks likely as BTC has witnessed another falling wedge breakout on the 4-hour chart. Bitcoin risks…

Bitcoin Making Little Headway as Resistance Caps Price Gains

View Bitcoin is struggling to cross the 50-day moving average hurdle for the fifth straight day. The repeated failure at that key hurdle has neutralized the bullish outlook put forward by Friday’s falling wedge breakout. A convincing move above $3,630 (50-day MA) would revive the short-term bullish outlook and open the doors to $3,730 – the neckline of a potential inverse head-and-shoulders bullish reversal pattern on the 4-hour chart. A violation there would confirm a bearish-to-bullish trend change and could yield a rally to $4,130 (target as per the measured…

View Bitcoin has backed off 4 percent from three-week highs seen on Friday, but looks to have formed a bull flag – a bullish continuation pattern – on the 4-hour chart. A move above $3,630 would confirm a flag breakout and open the doors to $4,000 (target as per the measured move method). Acceptance below the lower edge of the flag, currently at $3,546 would weaken the short-term bullish case.
