BTC/USD Technical Analysis

BTCUSD: Weekly Chart

Divergence patterns are known for either signaling a change in trend which could be a retracement of an existing trend, or they could signal the continuation of an existing trend, such is the regular bearish divergence pattern signaled on 24 June ’19 alongside an inverted Pin-bar candlestick pattern.

The bearish signal led to an exit of the overbought territory on 08 July ’19, and the RSI oscillator currently makes a lower low compared to price making a higher low, therefore indicating a buildup of hidden bullish divergence perhaps in the coming week.

BTCUSD: Daily Chart

If you are familiar with harmonic patterns you’ll immediately notice a Gartley pattern formed after the established low of $9,049.54 on 17 July ’19. Other than the Gartley harmoninc pattern, a hidden bullish divergence pattern is still in view, even in the face of last week’s bearish swing.

BTCUSD: H2 Chart

Last week 26 July ’19, the Bitcoin BTC price broke above the $9760.06 resistance increasing by about 4.5% before the bears increased the selling pressure and demand for the number one cryptocurrency by market-cap started drying up.

The breakdown of bullish accumulation, followed by double bearish divergence on 27 July ’19 signaled the increase an increase in BTC supply, for a counter 9.6% price drop.

A hidden regular bullish divergence pattern signaled at press time points to an increase in buying power as well as rejection of bearish resistance. 

Conclusion and Projection

Following recent breaks above bullish resistance levels on 28 July ’19 03:00 and on 30 July ’19 19:00, the Bitcoin price appears to be coming out of the five weeks price retracement as the bulls push the exchange rate higher on major Singapore broker platforms.

Prior to publishing this post, our price objective of $100248.41 is already achieved, as the BTC breaks above the MA-65.

We expect a continuation of the Bitcoin to dollar bullish trend as we enter a new month.
