Bitcoin Price Analysis: BTC/USD glued to $9,000, amid lack of momentum

  • Bitcoin is hovering at $9,000, upside momentum is slow.
  • The critical resistance comes on approach to $9,600.

BTC/USD recovered above $9,000 to trade at $9,080 by the time of writing. The first digital coin experienced a massive sell-off below $9,000 on Thursday and hit the recent low at $8,800 where new buyers popped in and saved the game. Despite the recovery, BTC/USD is down nearly 4% on a day-to-day basis and mostly unchanged since the beginning of the day. 

BTC/USD: on-chain data

According to Intotheblock data, strong resistance is located between $9,346 and $9,616, as there are about 1.54 million addresses that bought 994,000 BTC around that price. A sustainable move above this area is needed to improve the technical picture and attract new short-term buyers to the market.

On the intraday charts, the above-mentioned $8,700 is followed by a stronger barrier of $8,600 created by 4-hour SMA200.
