Bitcoin Price Analysis
After the last rocket climb to $8,000 flipped up all indicators, the Disbelief Mass Psychological Analysis phase gave way to Hope. Due to a bullish consensus recovery, targets at $8,000 were surpassed amid strong support from Fundamentals, News, and traditional media to reach the $9,000 level. The most probable scenario can be analyzed with prices entering a sideways lateral movement between $8,000 and $10,000, possibly with $7,000 as a strong support level if prices exit that range. Upper resistances (if an upward movement starts) are at $10,000 and $12,000, depending on external factors.
When quotes reactivated the $8,000 target, Formation analysis showed a new Diamond in the chart, bringing back a Wait and See attitude among operators. The current lateral market seems to recognize $9,000 as an upper resistance and $8,000 as a primary support — building another Diamond formation in the process. If values break out to the up side, the next resistance can be confirmed at $10,000. Mathematical indicators reflect high volatility, and bullish consensus increases from positive traditional media coverage on bitcoin’s recent performance.
After a long term lateral market, an uptrend that started on April is driving the action through the current $9,000 scenario. New formations and figures reflect stability inside the rising channel recently conquered. If values consolidate around the $8,000 level by sustaining a lateral market, bitcoin’s next step would be to rise to $10,000. If a Wait and See attitude prevails among operators, a new Diamond formation could delay any upward movement until some external factor backs the Bullish Consensus and Hope psychological phase. This could give way to Optimism with neutral positions re-entering. However if the $8,000 support is broken, the next support remains at $6,000.
