Technical Analysis of Bitcoin

Bitcoin is one of the best performers on the cryptocurrency market in the last several days, in less than five days the price of Bitcoin has advanced from $5 077 to $5 823. The beginning of May has been very positive for the cryptocurrency market so far, the price of Bitcoin is above $5 700 and this is certainly a positive thing for all other cryptos. Bitcoin is the first cryptocurrency to have existed and receive wide acceptance, it enjoys the support of both developers and users communities. Bitcoin cannot be stopped by the “hardfork” and this cryptocurrency can be accessed by everyone on the internet. The highest price of Bitcoin was above $19 000, a number of reasons have pushed Bitcoin to record highs, such as legalization of the currency in Japan for payments, boosted interest from other big countries, as well as the conclusion of a debate about the future of the cryptocurrency. When we look at the 1-year chart we can see that Bitcoin is moving in “downtrend”.  Short term support and resistance levels are $ 5 000 and $6 000 – If the Bitcoin jumps above $6 000 that would be a “BUY” signal and the open way to $7 000. If the Bitcoin jumps above  $10 000 that could be a strong signal of the trend reversal and the open way to $12 000. On the other side, if the BTC falls below $4 500 that will be a strong signal “SELL” signal and the next target could be around $4 000 or even $3 500.

Advice: The price of Bitcoin currently stands around $5 730 and there is a correlation between the price movements of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. This is a highly speculative cryptocurrency and still very risky, I also think that there are lots of other cryptocurrencies with bigger potential and with less risk. As for the technical picture, the Bitcoin remains in bearish phase but if the price advances above $6 000, short-term traders can enter the position with the stop loss at $5 800 and take profit at $6 800 or even $7 000.
