A BTC price report by AMBCrypto on 19 October highlighted the possibility for more gains after the king coin climbed to the $28.5k price zone. This analysis was validated over the past 48 hours, with buyers making another strong push from the $28.5k level.
This saw BTC flip the $29.4k level to support and underlined the bullish prospects for sustained gains above $30k.
Bulls cleared another major obstacle
The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator highlighted the intensity of the current bullish rally. It posted a bullish crossover above the zero mark to signal a strong bullish bias.
Nevertheless, the Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) showed that capital inflows were subdued, as it hovered around the zero mark. With the Relative Strength Index (RSI) hitting the overbought zone along with muted capital inflows, a minor pullback could be experienced in the short term.
This could see BTC retest the $29.4k support in the coming days before a continuation of the bullish uptrend, with $31k the long-term target for buyers.
On the other hand, a sharp rejection at $30k could reintroduce bears back into the market with a downward move. This is a possibility if the $29.4k support doesn’t hold on a retest.
