Bitcoin (BTC) Aiming for $7,000 Next?
Bitcoin Price Key Highlights
Bitcoin price is gaining traction on it bounce off the channel support on its 4-hour time frame.
A move to the next upside targets might be in the works and the Fibonacci extension tool marks these.
Technical indicators are hinting at weakening bullish momentum, though.
Bitcoin price looks ready to resume its climb and might aim for these upside targets marked by the Fib tool.
Technical Indicators Signals
The 100 SMA seems to be crossing below the longer-term 200 SMA to indicate that bearish pressure might return, but it could also be a delayed reaction to the latest slide. If the short-term MA is able to hold its head above the 200 SMA, it could reinforce the presence of bullish momentum.
Bitcoin price could aim for the 38.2% Fib extension from here as this lines up with the dynamic inflection points at the moving averages. The 50% level lines up with the mid-channel area of interest around $6,700 and the 78.6% level lines up with the top of the channel at $6,900. The $7,000 mark might also serve as psychological resistance just before the full extension at $7,075.
Stochastic is heading north so bitcoin price might follow suit while buyers are in control. However, the oscillator is nearing overbought levels to signal exhaustion and a possible return in bearish pressure. RSI has more room to go before hitting overdone levels, which means that buyers could stay in the game for a bit longer.
Bitcoin price seems to be rebounding from a rough start this week as a brand-new month is setting in. This typically brings more optimism and reopening of positions after booking profits at the end of the month, which also coincides with futures settlement.
Besides, the ICE Bakkt bitcoin futures are rumored to be in the works and might usher in stronger volumes and increased activity this November.
