Bitcoin has successfully entered the key resistance area as yesterday's candle closed above $10,000. In the daily, we are looking at the nearest possible resistance around 10,500 and a possible bounce area around 9,900. With the recent price structure, moving averages are likely to trail (10 EMA and 50 MA respectively) and a break above 10,500 could push price to a full-on bullish scenario and retest higher key resistances. Otherwise, a break below 9,500 - 9,400 could invalidate the move.
Global market cap is at $284B, while BTC's market cap is at $186B.
