Bitcoin has been on a constant growth since last year’s March crash to reach a new all time high in April 2021 at around 65,000 USD. Then, after the recent correction in May, price dropped to 29,000 USD.
Now, is this the end of Bitcoin’s Bullrun? Is this a similar scenario to the long term bearish trend we had back in 2018 that lasted for 3 years? Of course not! And in this article I will be going through Bitcoin Technical Analysis on several time frames for more confirmation on the overall trend in the short and long terms.
Let’s start with small time frames. Hourly chart seems like a good start. As you can see in the chart below, price has been consolidating around the 30,000 mark since May. We have formed what resembles a triple bottom formation which indicates a strong price reversal. We can also observe a squeeze bullish pattern that got broken recently. I expect the price to continue surging past the strong resistance at 41,000 USD towards 46,000 USD which is the minimum price target for the bullish squeeze formation. In case price decides to drop from this level, it has to maintain the 0.618 Fibonacci retracement level otherwise it will go more down.

If we zoom out of the chart to higher time frames, on the 12 hours chart, we can see that Bitcoin has been forming a massive rising channel since 2019. In the recent price correction, it touched the 50% retracement level (Mid channel line) and found support, and is now surging upwards to resume its macro-uptrend. Notice that volume was decreasing while price was dropping since May which indicates that the bears are losing control and trend is gaining some bullish momentum. The 50% retracement is a key level that Bitcoin has to maintain to stay bullish otherwise it will drop to 10,000 USD which is unlikely. In my opinion I expect Bitcoin to surge past its previous all time high to go near the 100K USD mark before the end of 2021.

Bullish divergence on the MACD indicator can be observed on the daily chart. The Ichimoku cloud area is reflecting and turning bullish. Price will have to stay above the cloud area to establish a strong support area before taking off to all time high.

Now, on the macro scale on the weekly chart, Bitcoin price has stayed above the 200 Moving Average line since 2015. In fact, on every attempt price tries to move down to form a death cross price goes up to nullify it and to resume its bullish trend. On the recent price drop, Bitcoin found strong support on the 50 Moving Average and is ready to go up again. Looking at MACD, we can see that it went down to the 0 line and now is ready to reflect and continue going upwards.

Based on all previous charts, I expect Bitcoin to surge past its all time high at 65,000 USD towards 100,000 USD and more in the near future.
