- Bitcoin is flashing signs of overt strength at the present moment as it trades above $9,500
- This marks the first time in many weeks that the cryptocurrency has been able to post a sustained movement higher
- Analysts are now closely watching whether or not it can surmount the resistance laced within the upper-$9,000 region
- It is important to note that the selling pressure here is quite significant
- This region also coincides with some crucial technical levels
- One analyst is noting that a break above some of these levels could put into play a sequence that leads Bitcoin to fresh highs
Bitcoin and the aggregated crypto market appear to be entering a consolidation phase as BTC hovers within the mid-$9,000 region.
After seeing some slight momentum that allowed it to rally from $9,300 to highs of $9,600, it has now been trading sideways for the past 24-hours.
Despite this being positive for the cryptocurrency’s short-term outlook, for it to see long-term strength, it must surmount the heavy resistance that lies just above its current price.
A recent accumulation trend seen amongst investors may help provide it with further strength.
Bitcoin Faces Accumulation Trend as Buyers Slowly Push It Higher
After witnessing a multi-week consolidation phase between $9,100 and $9,300, Bitcoin investors were thrilled to see the $200 movement that sent its price surging up past $9,500.
Although it has not posted much follow through on this movement, analysts do believe that the crypto is technically strong.
One sign of strength is seen while looking towards a recent accumulation trend that closely preceded this latest push higher.
A popular crypto analyst pointed to this in a recent tweet, offering data showing strong buying pressure in the lower-$9,000 region.
“It looks like there was a lot of accumulation going on the past couple of days,” he explained.

This Technical Sequence Could Provide BTC With Major Momentum
Another respected analyst explained in a tweet that it is a pivotal moment for Bitcoin.
While pointing to a multi-year descending resistance line that currently sits just a few hundred dollars above BTC’s current price, he said that a break above this level and $10,500 could lead it to all-time highs.
“Bitcoin just retested the 3 year DTL dating back to Dec 17′. This week we could have our first ever close above it. We could also see a HH put in which could allow us to test 10.5k. This sequence could lead to new ath’s w/ break of June 19′ high,” he explained.

Although Bitcoin may face some resistance at its 2019 highs of $13,800 if this breakout takes place, it may have enough momentum by then to shatter through this level.
