On February 23, the bulls make an upward move but were resisted at the $10,000 price level.
A second attempt at the $10,000 resistance resulted in another breakdown. The price dropped to a low of $9,600. The bears have narrowed down their defense to the $10,000 price level. In a situation like this, it will be an uphill task for the bulls to reach and break above the $10,400 overhead resistance.
Yesterday, the bulls are unable to break above the support line of the ascending channel. The resultant effect is that BTC dropped again. For the uptrend to have its proper perspective, the bulls must take price into the ascending channel.
At the moment, BTC is trading at level 52 of the daily Relative Strength Index and is still in the uptrend zone.
