- Bitcoin price in consolidation as the weekend session deals with low trading activity.
- A significant resistance lies at $9,441 and must be broken for Bitcoin bulls to shift the focus back to $10,000.
The king of cryptocurrencies has in the last 24 hours remained stable between $9,300 and $9,500. On Saturday, there was an attempt to break the resistance at $9,500 but buyers lacked enough volume to sustain the gains above $9,400. Instead, Bitcoin retreated towards $9,300. At the time of writing BTC/USD is dancing at $9,394 with its immediate downside protected by the 50-day SMA.
The sideways trading action is also held in place by an ascending trendline. If the losses resume, more support is anticipated at $9,200 and $9,000. For now, declines are unlikely as observed with the sideways moving RSI. It also vital that traders are aware of the downward inclined MACD whose bearish divergence highlights the presence of selling pressure, although it is mild. All in all the most prominent trend is the ongoing consolidation.
