Source: TradingviewAs for the technicals, both the moving average lines and MACD are sending a bullish signal. Volume has also held steady, with the last volume spike taking place during the latest bull run. There is also a triangle pattern forming that may constrain BTC price in a range between $9,240 and $9,280 for the rest of the day. Should BTC break above $9,320, the next major target would be $9,500. This is a pivotal level for BTC to go back to $10,000.
