- It is growing increasingly clear as to just how important $10,000 is for Bitcoin’s macro price action, as this level has been ardently defended by bulls on multiple occasions
- BTC has been trading around the level for the past several days, with each dip below it proving to be highly short-lived
- Bulls’ slight displays of strength whenever the crypto dips below this level are a positive sign for its near-term outlook
- One analyst is now noting that this price action has allowed Bitcoin to remain above its 128-day moving average
- The defense of this level seems to indicate that upside may be imminent in the near-term
Bitcoin and the entire cryptocurrency market are beginning to stabilize after facing some turbulence over the past few days.
Much to the chagrin of bears, the selling pressure around $10,000 has not been enough to spark any type of sustained dip below this key support level.
The continued defense of this level is a positive sign that indicates upside may be imminent.
It has also allowed BTC to remain above a key moving average. This is an overwhelmingly positive sign for its near-term outlook.
Bitcoin Bears Struggle to Shatter $10,000 Support
Over the past few days, analysts and investors alike have been growing incredibly bearish, widely noting that the sharp descent BTC saw from highs of $12,200 to lows of $9,900 struck a lethal blow to its market structure.
It is important to note that this decline has firmly ended, with buyers absorbing the selling pressure each time it dips below the five-figure price region.
Where it trends next may depend largely on its continued reactions to this support level.
Following a test of $9,950 yesterday afternoon, bulls stepped up and sent the crypto surging up to highs of $10,250 that were tapped earlier this morning. It has been consolidating ever since.
BTC Continues Defending Crucial Technical Support Level
Another analyst explained in a recent tweet that Bitcoin has been testing its 128-day moving average.
Although it has been defended thus far, he notes that a continued defense of it is required in order for it to catalyze bullish momentum.
“BTC testing the 128 DMA – historically often a level of support/resistance on trending price. Also testing HTF support – the LTF doesn’t have me convinced yet. If LTF can show strength I want more longs – until then I’ll sit in spot,” he explained.
