Technical Analysis for BTCUSD for 10th January 2023

Bitcoin Off to a Strong Start, will BTC Bulls Prevail?

Past Performance of BTC

Bitcoin prices started the week strongly on January 9. While the coin is trading above $17k and banding along the upper BB, pointing to interest, it remains to be seen whether the uptrend will continue. BTC bulls must close above the immediate resistance line for trend definition. From the daily chart, the January 9 bar closed as an inverted hammer with a long upper wick pointing to liquidation in the NY session.

Bitcoin Technical Analysis

Overly, bears are in control, considering the formation in the past few months. Critical resistance and support lie at $17.5k and $16.5k, respectively. Even so, the expansion of prices on January 10 and the surge above $17k is bullish. Presently, traders can look for entries, but only once there is confirmation of yesterday's gains above $17.5k. In that case, buyers can load the dips, targeting $18.5k or better. The liquidation in lower timeframes may cancel the uptrend, slowing down buyers. Subsequently, BTC may drop lower due to subsiding upsides. Still, if BTC remains above $16.5k, buyers stand a chance.

What to Expect from BTC

Buyers are confident that the bear run is over. Nonetheless, for trend definition, there must be substantial gains above $17.5k and $18.5k in the near term. If the surge confirms the gains of January 9, BTC may float to $18.5k and even $20k in the coming weeks.

Resistance level to watch: $17.5k

Support level to watch: $16.5k
