On April 13, bitcoin (BTC) broke out above the previous resistance area and managed to reach a new all-time high price.
BTC has continued its ascent today, so far reaching a high of $64,854.
New BTC all-time high
BTC had been struggling to move above the $61,500 resistance area since reaching the level for the first time on March 13.
Yesterday, it finally managed to break out and has reached a new high of $64,854 on April 14.
Technical indicators are bullish and support the continuation of the upward movement. The MACD has given a bullish reversal signal and both the RSI and Stochastic oscillator are increasing. The former is very close to crossing above 70.
The closest resistance area is found at $68,724. It’s found by using the 1.61 external retracement on the most recent drop.
Due to the readings from technical indicators, BTC is expected to reach this level.
The two-hour chart shows a breakout from an ascending resistance line. After this movement, the BTC increased to the new all-time high.
Neither the MACD nor the RSI show any clear signs of weakness in the form of bearish divergences. Despite this, the latter has reached overbought territory.
Significant increases can still occur inside the overbought region. Therefore, this doesn’t appear to be a cause for concern.
BTC is expected to reach the aforementioned resistance area.
The resistance line from which it broke out from is now likely to act as support.
