Why Bitcoin Price Should Retake $8,600 to Maintain Bull Trend

After a precipitous Bitcoin (BTC) price drop to $7,800 a level which analysts have said will make or break the cryptocurrency bull run on the weekend, investors were running scared.

But at the 11th hour, when all seemed lost, bulls stepped in. Since Monday, the leading cryptocurrency has recovered by some 10%to $8,600. Analysts say that it is imperative that Bitcoin claims $8,600, or else the bear trend threatens to continue.

BTC Needs to Hold $8,600

While Bitcoin has enjoyed some positive price action over the past 72 hours, the party has stopped or at least paused temporarily at $8,600. There, the cryptocurrency has found itself stuck, failing to break above that level.

This is for good reason. An analyst, whose analysis can be seen below, recently noted that at $8,600 exists a confluence of key technical trendlines that are preventing Bitcoin from heading higher. These include the 21-day exponential moving average, a level used to differentiate short-term trends; the 200-day exponential and simple moving averages, believed to be many to be indicative if an asset is in a long-term bull or bear trend; and the yearly VWAP.

They claim that if Bitcoin manages to decisively retake $8,600 on a daily time frame, which would mean a negation of any bearish implications caused by remaining under the aforementioned levels, it will be extremely bullish for the cryptocurrencys price outlook.

The abovementioned analyst isnt the only one accentuating the importance of $8,600. As reported by NewsBTC previously, trader Walter Wyckoff suggested that a rejection of $8,600 will lead to ramen for a while, or a long price lull, to cut the colloquialisms.

Why Bitcoin Recovered

With Bitcoin starting to look bullish, you may be wondering what is behind the recent move higher?

Interestingly, there isnt a single catalyst that analysts and investors have cited. Rather, there are three:


Announcements at Ethereum-centric Devcon:In acomment to Bloomberg, Galaxy Digitals Josh Lim said that updates regarding Ethereums Serenity iteration a new version of Ethereum slated to promote massive adoption due to scaling solutions and the unveiling of new apps on the blockchain has likely provided bulls with reasons to buy.
Bitcoin ETF hype:Joe DiPasquale, CEO of the cryptocurrency hedge-fund firm BitBull Capital, argued to CoinDesk that the hopeful comments from Bitwise Asset Management regarding its Bitcoin ETF application have bulls enthused. Bitwises head of research, Matt Hougan, said earlier this week that his firm is closer than ever in ensuring that a Bitcoin ETF gets through the U.S. SECs gauntlet. (Importantly, the application has since been denied by the SEC. BTC was unaffected.)
Federal Reserves resumption of balance sheet expansion: DiPasquale also looked to Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powells announcement that the Fed would be resuming the growth of its balance sheet. While Powell noted that this isnt quantitative easing a monetary policy that some have said is a key reason why Bitcoin matters many in the Bitcoin community have said that this latest decision only accentuates the cryptocurrencys disinflationary, non-sovereign, and decentralized nature.
