- Bitcoin recovers above $7,400 after strongly defending $7,000 key support.
- XBT/USD is nurturing a possible triangle breakout targeting $8,000.
Bitcoin is relatively bullish ahead of the weekend trading session. The shallow recovery follows several days of struggling to defend $7,000 and sustain gains above $7,200. XBT/USD surged briefly on Thursday breaking past the crucial resistance at $7,400. However, the psychological $7,500 resistance was tested but not broken.
In the meantime, Bitcoin is trading at $7,396 above the Exponential Moving Averages (EMA). The EMA 50 on the 1-hour chart is crossing above the EMA 100 in a reflection of the improving technical picture. Besides, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) is back above the average and holding ground at 56. The RSI has brushed shoulders with the oversold twice in December; on Dec 1 and Dec 4.
