This allowed the trend on BitMex to give BTC price upward sentiment in the market, after breaking USD 7,500 levels when the first purchase of contracts for USD 4,279,093 at USD 7,513 was settled in Short.
On the 4H graph of the XBTUSD pair on BitMex, Bitcoin price managed to temporarily break the immediate resistance located at the USD 7,576.00 levels, after the BTC price recovered from its last swing to the green zone where it touched lower levels to the key support (EMA 21) of USD 7,344.93.
In addition, in a couple of perfect opportunities, BTC tested the levels of USD 7,576.
Now the price has generated a positive slope configuring a perfect bullish channel after a clear S-H-S pattern. If BTC continues to gain ground with such momentum, we could see its price at higher levels close to or break above USD 7,742.36.
If the price manages to take advantage of the good FOMO around the ecosystem and allows the bulls to take control, we would be predicting that Bitcoin would reach the psychological barrier of 8k by the middle of the month, and a few days after the end of the year, we could see a double-digit recovery up to desired levels of USD 8,393.00
In the most unfavorable scenario, we would bring the price back to the green zone, between the bands of USD 7,087 – 7,344.
To corroborate Bitcoin price recovery behavior, we look at the technical indicators for the same chart above. In that sense, the Aroon indicator is showing its bullish signal at the top of the chart, with its bearish signal at the bottom of the chart with no symptoms of showing a change in trend for now.
RSI points out the increased interest of investors in the purchase of Bitcoin, with values that already reach 60 and are projected to rise in the next few hours.
In that sense, the moving average of the Bollinger Bands point to USD 7,400.47 as the key support of BTC, as the last sail managed to test the immediate resistance above USD 7,500. Bullish behavior seems to be approaching in the next movement for the indicated time frame.
Does History Repeat Itself?
Although Bitcoin has remained practically all year long with levels very far from its historical highs, precisely at this moment in the weekly chart a pattern is being repeated that could encourage the resurrection of the price of the main market reference.
The cyclical pattern that characterizes the assets, is showing that we are at the beginning of an upcoming bull run that could mark a new ATH.
If the pattern of the year 2017 is repeated, then we must expect that next year BTC could enter into a sustained price growth that would take it to a maximum ATH of average levels in the 26k.
