Finally, Bitcoin [BTC] inflicted a bullish breakout above its 2-week range formation. Following a weekend price pump amidst a tentative US debt ceiling deal, BTC secured the $26.2k support and crossed $27k. 

The uptrend momentum was extended into the last week of May as the king coin climbed above the $26k – $27.5k range on 29 May.

At press time, the BTC’s price was $28k, up 0.32% in the past 24 hours, extending green across most altcoins.

However, the move to $28k has previously faced heavy headwinds as long-term BTC holders sought to lock profits at this level.

Between 11 – 28 May, BTC formed a short-term range of $26k – $27.5k. The pullback of the bullish breakout from the range on 29 May retested the range high at $27.5k. 

After the pullback retest, the confirmed uptrend sets BTC bulls to watch out for key resistance levels ahead. 

One of the resistance levels is $28.5k, a key price ceiling/range high during late March/early April price consolidation. A retest of $29k or $30k could be likely if BTC clears the $28.5k roadblock. 

But a breach of the range high and the 20-EMA ($27.5k) could shove back BTC to the range, derailing bulls’ efforts. Such a retracement could ease at the mid-range of $26.8 or range low at $26k. 

The RSI hit the overbought territory while the CMF retraced to the zero mark, denoting an increased buying pressure but easing capital inflows to BTC.

Out of the $1.56 million liquidated positions, $1.5 million were short positions in the 4-hour timeframe. While this paints a short-term bullish outlook, it remains to be seen if BTC will close above $28k at the end of May and extend the uptrend momentum into June.
