Bitcoin (BTC) Price Prediction for September 18, 2019
Bitcoin is forming a bull flag pattern on the 4-hour time frame, following the August 29 rebound at $9300 area. This pattern is commonly a bullish breakout formation, which may play out if the buyers can surpass the $10434 resistance area but still holding the price in a consolidation mode.
Another thing to consider here is a potential channel break-up which may allow Bitcoin’s price to hit $10600 and $10800 resistance if a surge occurs. However, should BTC price keep rejecting at the channel’s upper boundary, we may see a price cut to $10000 vital support.
A further low drive could send the price to $9850, and $9550 supports. For now, the bulls are still defending critical support.
As we can see on the 4-hour chart, Bitcoin is coming up with a bullish formation that may take its price to the next parabolic phase. Currently, the bullish formation is yet to validate above the channel. The $10000 support is another area that is causing panic in the market.
However, the consolidation between the $10434 – $10000 price zones makes BTC fragile at the moment. We may have to wait for a clear breakout before initiating entry.
