Bitcoin (BTC) returned above $30,000 support during Asia hours as buyers reacted to oversold conditions. The next level of resistance is seen around $32,000 and $34,000 given the intermediate-term downtrend.
The quick rebound above $30,000 is similar to the June 22 shakeout which preceded a brief price rally. Bitcoin was trading around $31,400 at press time and is up about 6% over the past 24-hours.
- The relative strength index (RSI) on the four-hour chart registered an oversold signal on Monday as bitcoin dipped below $30,000. The RSI is not yet overbought, which could keep buyers active towards $34,000 resistance.
- The 100-period moving average on the four-hour chart is sloping downwards as buyers have been quick to take profits on rallies.
- Short-term momentum is improving as bitcoin returns to a month-long range. The rebound above $30,000 suggests selling pressure from June is starting to slow.
