4-hour chart for BTC/USDT (Source: TradingView)
BTC’s price has consolidated in the past 16 hours following its break above the $29,200 resistance level yesterday. The next target for BTC’s price, should bulls be able to ignite a rally within the next 24 hours, will be the $30k mark. A successful attempt at breaking above the psychological $30k level will clear a path for BTC’s price to rise to $30.8k.
Traders will want to keep an eye on the previously-mentioned $29,200 level. A break below this level will result in BTC’s price dropping back down to $28,400 in the following 2 days. However, the 9 EMA line on BTC’s 4-hour chart trading above the 20 EMA line suggests that bulls currently have the upper hand and the bullish thesis is more likely to play out.
