The week closed at $23,174. Bitcoin prices held at above MA200 and continued to move in an upward direction. We managed to gain a foothold above the RSI trend line, which is in the bullish zone on the daily timeframe. Volumes continue to grow while BTC has already made 3 attempts to gain a foothold above $24,000.
Globally, the bearish trend continues and the RSI is still in the bearish zone. The delta is in the negative at -$326 million. Huge liquidity is concentrated in the support zone, which increases the chance to go down.
The priority of movement in the upward direction remains with targets of $24,000 and $26,000 as well as a test of the global resistance zone in the $29,000-$32,000 range. The Fear & Greed Index is at 42 points; not far from the neutral zone.
Altcoins show good bounces. Ethereum is ahead of Bitcoin in terms of movement dynamics and has already shown more than 50% growth. If the BTC continues its upward movement, we can expect the emergence of a long-term trend.
