This upside breakout comes after the BTCUSD pair dropped following news that US President Donald Trump had rejected a proposal from the House of Representatives for another round of stimulus.
Indeed, the BTC price has shown resilience in the past week in the wake of bad news in the crypto space that would have sent prices plunging in a bear market. However, the support at $10,500 has held strong.
Traders are now watching to see if the bulls will generate enough momentum to push prices back beyond $11K.
Decisive Move is Coming For BTC
According to one momentum “algo” analyst, the trading range for BTC is tightening as volatility levels drop. This price action points to an imminent breakout move that will set the trend for “coming weeks.”
Mohit Sorout, a founding partner at Bitazu Capital, tweeted these remarks while sharing the chart below. The analysis demonstrates the two levels that BTC must breakthrough in either direction to set the coming trend.
According to Sorout’s chart, the breakout range for confirmation of trend change stems from $10.2K to $11.2K. A break to the upside would begin a new bull market, while a breakdown below $10.2K could push the BTC price to the unknown.
