This Technical Indicator Points to a Near-Term Bitcoin (BTC) Rally
The price of Bitcoin (BTC) may finally be moving in the right direction after not hitting a new low since mid-December, and at least one technical indicator suggests a short-term rally may be in our future.
According to a recent report by Bloomberg, Bitcoin’s GTI Global Strength Indicator, a measure of upward and downward movements of successive closing prices, is nearing oversold levels and recently fell below 35.6 — its lowest level since mid-December.
According to the report, the GSI shows clear support around the $3,000 and $3,500 levels, suggesting Bitcoin may have experienced at least a short-term bottom in mid-December.
Bloomberg’s report also notes that Bitcoin briefly breached its lower VERA band on Tuesday (when it fell below $3,500) before rocketing back above the lower bound. According to the analyst, this type of movement indicates a short-term rally is likely in the near future.
Bitcoin is currently trading up 1.9% on the day to $3,607, bringing the digital currency to a $63.1 billion market cap.
