Daily chart for BTC/USDT (Source: CoinMarketCap)
BTC’s price has been able to break above the 20-day EMA line and is now looking to do the same with the 50-day EMA line. However, the daily RSI indicator suggests that BTC’s price has reached a short-term peak, and that its price will either consolidate at this level or drop down to the 20-day EMA line again.
Currently, the daily RSI line is sloped negatively towards oversold territory. The daily RSI line is, however, positioned above the daily RSI SMA line. This suggests that a price drop from the current level will not be too big.
If BTC’s price is able to maintain its position above the 20-day EMA line when today’s trading session closes, then the bearish thesis will be invalidated, and BTC’s price will look to target the $17,210.05 resistance level.
