Bitcoin rate (BTC) will always stay with the Proof of Work algorithm. In the picture a Bitcoin on a circuit board.
The Bitcoin price is well below the resistance zone of the old all-time high of 2017. Now it just has to break through this zone sustainably. Are investors‘ hopes that prices will continue to rise justified or will we soon see a longer correction phase? In the weekly, daily and 4-hour charts, we want to approach this question from a technical point of view.
Still bullish during the week
First, let’s go back to the superordinate weekly time unit. There you can get a good overview of the entire course. Currently important support and resistance zones can be determined quite easily for long-term investors. However, these zones are also relevant in the lower time units.
If you look at the last weekly candle, you can see that the Bitcoin price fell by a crisp 1,800 dollars shortly after the week opened. In our last report we suspected a correction in the zone between $ 17,500 and $ 17,600, which was also hit exactly. After that, the price rose almost back to the opening level.
The Relative Strength Index (RSI), an indicator that shows purchasing power, was unable to move away from the expensive, overbought area during the week. The alarm bells continue to ring for long positions.

Bitcoin price shows strength again
After a correction this week, the bulls were able to hold their own again. The still acute resistance zone above the Bitcoin price is being attacked again. Once again, the bulls are driven out of this zone by the bears and rallied again this week for an attack.
Both market groups, bulls and bears, are well represented above and below the price. The price range in which the price moves is getting smaller and smaller. The course is being squeezed violently on both sides. And what happens when two opponents push against each other with all their might? Correct. One of them will eventually run out of strength and the winning opponent breaks through with momentum. So should an outbreak come in one direction or the other, it will very likely be massive.
The RSI has returned to normal thanks to the correction this week. This means that there is again a lot of space for the Bitcoin course on both sides, upwards and downwards. The RSI only has a limiting effect in the overbought or oversold area.
