What to Expect from Bitcoin (BTC)

However, if the bulls continue to push the market above the recent daily high, then the market price could hit the resistance levels of $36,000, $36,200, and $36,400 respectively. Moreover, further bullish movement above these resistance levels may encourage further buying above the upper boundary of the channel.

Meanwhile, according to the technical indicator RSI (14), Bitcoin may continue to follow an upward trend as the signal line moves above the 85-level within the overbought zone.

If it fails to find support here, then traders can expect the correction to get even deeper, which may likely reach the support levels of $30,600, $30,400, and $30,200 respectively.
