|Did Bitcoin Mark a Local Top? Here's the Level to Watch: BTC Price Analy...|
Bitcoin's impulsive rally seems to have temporarily halted, and the price will likely enter a correction phase before the next leg up. Overall, Bitcoin is facing significant resistance at the $30K level, which hasn't been tested yet.
The Daily Chart
After forming a pullback to the 61.8% level of the Fibonacci entrancement level at $19.6K, the price initiated a massive rally with a current high above $28K. However, the bulls couldn't reach the significant resistance region of $30K.
This price area also acts as a psychological resistance zone, as many traders believe that once the price surpasses the $30K level, the bear market will be officially terminated. Nevertheless, a clear divergence between the price and the RSI indicator can be identified, potentially leading to a short-term correction or consolidation stage.
The 4-Hour Chart
The impulsive bullish rally is more evident on the 4-hour timeframe. However, recent price action indicates that the bullish momentum has decreased, and the price is likely to enter a short-term consolidation or correction phase.
Bitcoin could retest two major support levels in this scenario: the $25K significant support level and the price zone between the 0.5 and 61.8 Fib retracement levels, roughly at $24.4K and $23K.
