In today’s cryptocurrency chart analysis, we will dive into Bitcoin fundamentals and technicals.
Solid Price and Moving Averages
On technical side, Bitcoin has been above the $10,000 mark for 92 days for the first time in its cycle. Plus, a daily 21 EMA, a 50 MA, a 100 MA, and a 200 MA are showing upper side potential.
BTC is making new higher highs and higher lows, both raising the price average. Eventually, BTC will have a correction and level out near last year’s peak of $14,000 which coincidences with Fibonacci’s Golden Ratio. That price finished last year’s bull run as BTC had 70% retracement.
