BTCUSD pushes through key resistance level
Bitcoin/USD Index (BTCUSD) Technical Analysis Report for Apr 15, 2018
Moving higher for the 6th day in a row, BTCUSD finished Sunday at 8350.34 gaining $360.19 (4.51%). Today's closing price of 8350.34 marks the highest close since March 25th. The bulls were in full control today, moving the market higher throughout the whole session. Closing above Saturday's high at 8195.34, Bitcoin confirms its breakout through the prior session's high having traded $241.69 above it intraday.
Sunday's trading range was $415.99 (5.19%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $553.34. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly above the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.
Breaking through the key resistance level at 8237.16 today, it is now likely to act as support going forward.
Although BTC is experiencing a short-term up trend, this might just be a correction, as both the medium and long term trends are still in negative territory.
Even though both sentiments are bullish for the next trading day, the classical technical analysis metrics are only slightly bullish while our quantitative statistics show a very bullish sentiment.
