- After facing an intense influx of selling pressure yesterday, Bitcoin has been able to recover some of its recent losses as it navigates back into the mid-$9,000 region
- The cryptocurrency is showing some signs of strength due to the rebound seen from its overnight lows
- Analysts do not believe that this recent movement was enough to invalidate its macro strength, and some are still offering near-term targets as high as $11,000
- In order for this to be a real possibility, it is imperative that bulls confirm the crypto’s monthly open as support
Bitcoin has making its way back into the mid-$9,000 region after a brief period of intense weakness as it traded within the lower-$9,000 region throughout late yesterday.
The cryptocurrency bore witness to an intense influx of selling pressure yesterday that caused it to decline down to lows of $9,000. This came about in tandem with the selloff seen by the stock market.
It is important to consider that buyers were able to post an ardent defense of its recent lows and its rebound towards $9,500 is a positive sign.
Bulls now need to confirm the benchmark cryptocurrency’s monthly open at $9,400 as a support level and it could be well on its way to reaching one trader’s next target of $11,000.
BITCOIN REBOUNDS FOLLOWING YESTERDAY’S SHARP SELLOFF
Yesterday, Bitcoin plummeted from daily highs of $10,050 to lows of $9,000. This drop came close on the heels of the over 5% decline seen by many of the major stock indices.
It also marked a bearish resolution to the long-held consolidation channel that the crypto had been caught within around $9,700.
Presently, Bitcoin is trading down just under 3% at its current price of $9,470.
Analysts are noting that the rebound seen overnight could play in bulls’ favor, as it may allow the crypto to confirm its monthly open at $9,400 as a level of support.
If this occurs, it could provide BTC with major momentum.
“Turn the monthly into support and we can have [bull] dreams again,” one popular trader noted while pointing to the chart seen below.

BTC REMAINS POISED TO RALLY TOWARDS $11,000 IN COMING WEEKS, CLAIMS TRADER
The next high time frame price level that analysts are closely watching for sits at $11,000.
Although there is significant resistance lying between Bitcoin’s current price and these highs, one analyst there is a strong chance that this is where BTC ventures next.
He reasons that the strength needed to propel it up to these highs will be provided by the consistent closes above its 50-day moving average that it has been posting.
“As long as we keep closing days BTC above MA50 I look up to 11k+,” he stated.

His chart does show that a failure to hold above this key MA could spark a movement down to $8,000.
