Bitcoin’s (BTC) Rally is a Picture Perfect Advance So Far – Bollinger

In brief:

  • According to John Bollinger, Bitcoin’s current rally is a picture-perfect advance. 
  • BTC has broken the $12k ceiling and managed to turn it into a support zone. 
  • $13,000 could be in sight if Bitcoin’s momentum is maintained. 

The inventor of the popular charting tool/indicator of Bollinger Bands, John Bollinger, has stated that Bitcoin’s current rally is a picture-perfect advance so far. Mr. Bollinger made the comments via Twitter and added that the move by Bitcoin above $12k followed a textbook path within its Bollinger Bands.

His comments were as follows.

I imagine that someone is complaining about the $BTCUSD rally. Not me, a picture perfect advance so far.

Squeeze, confirmed break out, walk up the upper band, consol, support at middle band, mini-Squeeze, break to new highs. How much more could one ask for?!

$13k Could Be In Sight for Bitcoin

Prior to Bitcoin (BTC) breaking $12k, the King of Crypto had printed an ascending triangle. By breaking the $12k ceiling, Bitcoin has set itself on a path to test the 2019 peak value of $14,000.

However, before Bitcoin traders can look forward to a retest of the $14k price level, BTC has to go through another difficult zone between $12,900 and $13,100.

For a better feel of Bitcoin’s price movement, the 6-hour BTC/USDT chart below will be used to provide clues as to what the future holds for BTC.

From the chart, the following can be observed.

  • As explained by Mr. Bollinger, Bitcoin’s rally above $12k was picture perfect.
  • BTC broke the ascending wedge as anticipated.
  • Bitcoin’s current price at $12,200 is above the 50, 100, and 200 moving averages confirming a bullish environment.
  • However, the 6-hour MACD and MFI point towards some exhaustion for Bitcoin on the 6-hour chart.
  • Trade volume is also in the red highting of a possible dip to the $12k area to test this area as support.

However, zooming out to the daily MACD, it is observed that it is about to cross in a bullish manner hinting that BTC could be gearing up for another move to retest its recent peak of $12,500. If the $12,500 resistance area is broken, Bitcoin could well be on a path to retest the $13,000 area.

As with all analyses of Bitcoin, traders and investors are advised to use stop losses and low leverage when trading on the various derivatives platforms.
