Today’s move to $29,000 came after a high volume surge pushed through the $28,500 resistance but the battle for $30,000 is far from over.
Data from Material Indicators shows there are still sell walls near the $30,000 level at Binance and other major cryptocurrency exchanges.

Barring another sustained high volume surge in purchasing volume, the presence of sell walls suggests that a rally to $30,000 may trigger a strong sell-off and cause BTC price to revisit key underlying supports at $28,000 and $27,300 where the 20-day moving average currently resides on the 4-hour timeframe.
$30,00 then moon?
Many retail traders expect Bitcoin price to soar well above $30,000 once the psychological barrier is overcome but Nunya Bizniz, a popular trader on Twitter, points out that above $30,000 Bitcoin price begins to look a bit overextended as the 1.618 Fibonacci retracement is at $30,196.

Given that Bitcoin price has rallied 64.9% since the start of December, hitting the 1.618 Fib level could provide a signal that a pullback is on the cards but ultimately, volume will be the primary indicator of where the price may go.
Currently, Bitcoin price has gained 302.6% for the year and is vastly outperforming gold and traditional markets like the Dow and S&P500. For Q4, BTC has rallied by 168.32%, securing the second-best quarterly performance since 2017 when the digital asset gained 210.13% in Q4.
