The crypto has been able to navigate through the heavy resistance labeled on the chart seen above. Nevertheless, the interim price rally paused for a breather, indicating that traders are waiting for a bullish continuation before they buy bitcoin at local tops. It may lead to a sharp pullback to the downside.
As bitcoin aims to confirm an extended bull run, the cryptocurrency also has painted a historically accurate and super predictive Golden Cross. The bullish indicator is formed when an asset’s short-term moving average closes above its long-term moving average. Bitcoin traders typically watch 50-daily and 200-daily MA curves to confirm a Golden Cross – or its opposite, the bearish Death Cross. But those metrics have so far proven to be lagging.
The 20-50 MA combo instantly predicts bitcoin’s next potential moves. As of Friday, the 20-daily EMA is above the 50-daily SMA, hinting that the BTCUSD exchange rate is looking to head higher. A similar formation earlier this year had pushed the pair up by more than 40 percent. On the flip side, bitcoin is still trending higher inside a Rising Wedge pattern, as confirmed by two converging trendlines. The cryptocurrency could continue rising until it reaches the shape’s apex. After that, it could fall by as much as the height of the Wedge, leading it below the $5,000 level.
