Bitcoin (BTC) struggles to regain $50,000 and Ether stalls at $3,300

Kijun Weekly in support for BTC

In our previous analysis, we explained the important support role that the Kijun Weekly plays. This curve acts as a springboard during the bullrun and must allow the price to bounce back towards its All Time High (ATH) in order to resume an upward direction.

In the event of a downward break of the Kijun, there is a risk for price to retest the Tenkan or the cloud top, both around the $40,500 mark.

Bitcoin (BTC) still testing daily support

After the breakout of this symmetrical yellow bottom widening pattern several weeks ago, Bitcoin found itself stuck below historic resistance at $49,500. A rejection that led to a return of the price to the Tenkan Daily, currently under retest.

The Bitcoin (BTC) Daily chart

While the trend is back up on the daily chart, the break of the yellow wedge should take the price towards $57,800 in the coming weeks (breakout target). This target is the height of the wedge at the breakout point.

As long as the Tenkan at $47,200 and the Kijun at $43,400 remain below the price, we remain by definition in an uptrend and there is nothing to worry about. In an uptrend, the price regularly returns to test its Ichimoku curves, to allow the market to breathe.

An invalidation scenario will be activated if the price breaks back below the Kijun Daily, with confirmation of a breakout, as this will mean a re-entry into the wedge as well as a risk of a market reversal.
