The Bollinger Bands had remained diverged after the correction and surge. This push in the price has resulted in the bulls remaining in charge of the current trend. The signal line slipped under the candlesticks indicating the rising pressure. Despite the correction, the 50 moving average was noting that the Bitcoin price has been building higher as it remained under the price bars.
Meanwhile, the Relative Strength Index [RSI] highlighted that as the buying pressure in the market rallied the price also surged. At the time of press, the RSI value was 54, which was close to the equilibrium zone. Currently, the buying and selling pressures were equalized given the value of BTC.
However, despite the bullish market, the momentum has remained low. This indicated that the market may not be prepared for a price swing and may continue to move along the current price range.
The above chart of Bitcoin indicated that the sudden surge and fall has caused the current value to move sideways. This sideways movement may continue as the buyers and sellers evened each other out in the market while the momentum remained low.
