Bitcoin bulls take charge as SOL, AR, GRT and FTM flash bullish signs

Bitcoin (BTC) has risen over 8% this week, indicating that lower levels continue to attract buyers. Generally, in a range, traders buy near the support and sell close to the resistance. This suggests that the price may reach the top of the range at $73,777, but clearing this hurdle might be difficult.

Analysts are divided in their opinion about Bitcoin’s next directional move. Some believe that the correction is over and Bitcoin will break out to a new all-time high, while others expect Bitcoin to turn down to retest the $60,000 support and go lower. It is difficult to predict the direction of the breakout from a range with certainty. Hence it could be prudent to wait for the price to start a new trend before establishing large trading positions.

The 20-day exponential moving average ($64,109) has started to turn up, and the relative strength index (RSI) is in the positive territory, indicating that the path of least resistance is to the upside. If the $68,000 level is crossed, the BTC/USDT pair could retest the formidable overhead resistance at $73,777.

If bears want to prevent the upside, they will have to quickly yank the price below the moving averages. If they do that, the pair could slump to $59,600 and later to the May 1 intraday low of $56,552.
