Bitcoin price moves toward $24K and traders expect further upside, after a support retest

The sight of green on the market on July 19, after months of price action that was “down only”, is a relief for crypto enthusiasts.

Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView data show that Bitcoin (BTC), breaking through resistance at $23,000, to reach a daily high $23,447 is the reason for much of the excitement. This was its first significant move above the 200-week moving mean.

Many have predicted a rise to the mid-$30,000 mark, but some analysts warn that this could be another fakeout pump. Let’s look at the perspectives of traders on Bitcoin’s rise to $33,000.

Bitcoin requires a weekly candle that closes above $22,800

Rekt Capital, a cryptocurrency analyst, has focused on the move above the 200 week MA. He posted the following chart, commenting that BTC was making a good effort to regain the 200-week MA support.

In recent weeks, the 200-week MA has been closely watched as it serves as a reliable indicator of bear markets and has historically given insight into when a bottom is reached.

Rekt Capital said,

#BTC must have a Weekly Candle Close of $22800 or more to confirm a claim for the 200-week MA support.

A pullback of $18,000 is possible.

Phoneix ICF provided further insight on what would be needed to confirm a bullish view on the gains of July 19. The following chart highlights the next major resistance level to watch out for.

Phoenix ICF said,

Wait for the 1st candle to close at $23K, then place long bets. If this is not the case, it will likely fall below $18K very soon. Avoid emotional trading and be patient

Crypto Patel stated,

“Scenario 1 – Break $22,900 Level, then ready for long with $28,400TP [take profit]. Scenario 2 – If you fail to have $$22,000.00, then it is possible to test the $12K level.

The chart below, based on current Bitcoin prices, predicts a possible run up to the resistance zone near $28,400 followed by a consolidation/pullback before BTC attempts at taking out the resistance located at $32,300.

The total cryptocurrency market is now worth $1.062 trillion. Bitcoin’s dominance rate at 42.1%.
