Bitcoin (BTC) Holds in the Upside Range; Here is Why It Must Break This Deadlock

On May 30, buyers made their final retest at the $10,000 overhead resistance in May. As usual, the bulls were repelled and buyers were resisted at the $9,800 resistance zone. The market retraced to the $9,400 and the support was holding. Bitcoin has been consolidating above the current support in the last three days.

As the market consolidates above $9,400, can bulls sustain price in the upside range? Yes, depending on the volatility in June. In May, buyers were able to retest the $10,000 overhead resistance on several occasions. This was made possible because of the consistency in price movement in the upside range.

In the range, the price fluctuates between $9,300 and $9,800 to retest the resistance zone. The major resistance zone includes $9,950 and $10,000. In June, if bulls sustain price in the upside range, history may likely repeat itself. In other words, as long as price remains above $9,300, the price movement to $9,800 is possible.

In the meantime, BTC is still in consolidation, if the bears turn around and break below the $9,400, there will be an immediate bearish reaction. Bitcoin will first fall to $9,300 and later dropped to $9,000. The market will drop to the $8,800 if the $9,000 support cracks. The downward movement will continue if bulls fail to put a halt at $8,800 low. Bitcoin is in the uptrend zone as it is at level 54 of the Relative strength index period 14.
