Bitcoin: Quick Technical Insight
Bitcoin is facing a make-or-break moment following the latest selloff between November 2021 and February 2022. On the technical side, the cryptocurrency remains is a positive momentum according to the MACD (12, 26, 9) readings and it has just touched the overbought territory in line with the RSI (14). Although those two measures show the possibility of the new long-term uptrend forming, it is worth to note the price of Bitcoin is trading well above the 50 days MA which recently changed its direction upwards. Moreover, the digital currency has started testing the 200 days MA resistance level. If this level is broken we may see the Bitcoin price to go well above the level of $50k.
Things look very interesting also on the relative basis. The Bitcoin vs. SPX ratio has just started trading above the 200 days MA. Is this the right moment to short the S&P 500 Index and go long Bitcoin? There is no simple answer to this question, but the relative value technical investors are probably wondering what is going to happen next.
