Daily chart shows trader $30,000 target

TradingView and Cointelegraph Markets Pro data showed that BTC/USD rose overnight to regain its top trading range.

Although the pair failed to break above $23,500 range resistance, it appeared that the pair was still in limbo as of this writing. However, there were hopes for bullish continuation.

Material Indicators, an on-chain monitoring resource, wrote that “expect more volatility over the next wknd” in its most recent Twitter update on Aug. 5.

“If the Bear Market Rally is able to push BTC above $25k, there’s not much friction between 26k and 28k range. A loss of the trend line could be disastrous for bullish hopes.

$28,000 would be nearly two months high and more than 20% above the current spot price.

Material Indicators provided a chart that showed the trendline at $22,000, which is around Bitcoin’s current realized value.

Further, the chart showed that bid support was increasing below spot and major resistance at $24,500.

Because of a lack liquidity on exchange order book, retail traders dominate weekend trading. Institutions and professionals wait until the next trading week. This causes volatility in price action.
