Bullish pennant hints at Bitcoin price breakout to $11,300

(BTC) price appears to have entered the weekend on the good foot after a relatively uneventful Friday saw the price continue to fluctuate between $10,200-$10,400.

At the time of writing the daily chart shows the top-ranked digital asset tightening into a pennant and since making a double bottom at $9,838, BTC has etched a pattern of higher lows which have now pinched the price into a tighter range.

While trading volume still leaves a lot to be desired, the moving average convergence divergence indicator shows the MACD pulling closer to the signal line and the shorter bars on the histogram indicate that selling is slowing down.

While encouraging, the RSI remains below the midline and even though BTC is now above the 100-MA a breakthrough the pennant to flip $10.5K to support is still the next step traders are looking for.

As mentioned in the previous analysis, if the price can push through $10.5K, bulls will attempt to exploit the VPVR gap from $10,500-$11,000 but it’s likely that the 20-MA ($10,900) will act as resistance before pushing moving higher toward $11,300.

While Bitcoin price continues to consolidate toward a more decisive move, altcoins moved higher to test key resistance levels that just a week prior were strong supports.

Yearn.finance (YFI) was a top performer, rallying 22.5% to $38,333. Binance Coin (BNB) gained 11.30% and ONT moved 13.19% higher.
