BTC Price Update 08/20/2021

Looking good so far

Bitcoin has been on fire since my last article Bitcoin Price Update 08/05/2021 make sure to read it first to see how the market reacted over the past two weeks.

Let’s start with the chart analysis as I always do. I first show the charts from my previous article and discuss how the price reacted and then give my opinion on where I think the market will go in the future.  

BTCUSD - 1H Chart (Click to View)

Looking at the hourly chart from my previous article, Bitcoin was going up as expected after it broke out of the bullish squeeze formation and got rejected at the strong resistance at 41,341 USD and was ready to continue going up towards 46,000 USD: 

Now two weeks later: 

As can be seen above, price continued to surge past the strong resistance at 41,341 USD and achieved the minimum target at 46,000 USD. 

Zooming into the chart we can see that relative strength index, RSI is overbought and it might cause more selling pressure on Bitcoin price on the short term:

Now moving on to the 4H chart, from last article, price has been moving in a falling channel: 

So far, we are still going up after breaking out of the falling channel. Also, looking at RSI and MACD indicators they show bullish momentum building up. Price has yet to go up above 50,000 USD in the near future:

BTCUSD - 12H Chart (Click to View)

The 12H chart remains bullish above the 50% channel retracement since the last article. I still believe it has the potential to go beyond all time high towards 100,000 USD. There are no updates on the chart:

BTCUSD - 1D Chart (Click to View)

Looking at the daily chart of the last article we can see how price continued to surge upward after breaking out of the Ichimoku Cloud and as long as price is above the cloud we remain bullish on the daily chart. MACD indicator crossed the 0 line to go in the bullish zone as shown below:

Now two weeks later price found resistance at the 0.618 Fibonacci level. This level has to break to resume going up to 0.786 level which should be around same target as that in the 4H chart.

The weekly chart remains bullish since it found good support at the 50 MA. The MACD indicator is close to the 0 mark and the fast MA line is crossing above the slower one which indicates the continuation of the uptrend:

So to sum it up, my overall sentiment on Bitcoin is still bullish. On short term there might be a correction on the hourly chart but it shouldn’t last since the 4H chart is still bullish and has to go beyond 50,000 USD. 12H chart remains bullish above the 50% channel retracement level. Daily chart is still bullish above the Ichimoku Cloud. Finally, the weekly chart still on strong support at the 50 MA and MACD is showing bullish crossing.
