Digital Currency Revolution Series: Spotlight On FxWirePro’s BTC Long Hedges As Bitcoin Explodes With Fresh 1-Year Highs
Bitcoin price rebounds above $12k mark, the bullish price action has been impressive since Covid-19 saga. But for now, the bulls seem to have been exhausted at the stiff resistance of $12,400 - $12,500 levels.
Thereby, BTCUSD, at Coinbase, has decelerated bullish price momentum and plunges below 12,000 areas again that indicates the consolidation is likely to prolong ahead of a breakout to $12,500 levels.
Bulls are roaring with the fresh 1-year highs after decisive breakout of long-lasting range with the stern bullish candle on 17th (refer daily chart), technically, both leading & lagging indicators are also in line with the prevailing upswings with mild overbought pressures. But currently, the strong support is seen at 11,600 levels on intraday basis (4h chart).
On a wider perspective, BTC has spiked since mid-March, from $3,858 to the current highs of $12,486 which is 223% rallies. The major trend has also broken out of the range and retraced more than 50% Fibonacci levels of December 2018 lows to the all-time highs in 2017 (refer weekly plotting).
Along with such an upsurge in the underlying price action, Bakkt, the ICE’s subsidiary, has made commendable record numbers of trades for its monthly Bitcoin futures contracts as BTC prices is surging higher above $11,000 mark, so is the case with CME BTC futures.
Although we expect minor dips in the short run, but bounce back above 11,600 should not be surprised, hence, long hedges should be intact instead of fresh shorts as the major bull-run is foreseen.
