Bitcoin price chart

The arrival of December brings with it the hope and joy that comes with the upcoming Christmas and other holidays. These festivities often manifest in the stock and crypto markets as a leg up, otherwise known as a ‘Santa Claus rally’. Will bitcoin’s price break out of the current resistance zone to give bullish investors a holiday gift?

The holiday sentiment has not made itself clear in the stock markets or crypto markets yet, unfortunately. BTC is currently trading above $17,000 and is up by 0.3% on the day after being rejected below $17,400, while US stock indexes are down by 0.98% to 1.36% so far today.

However, BTC’s support of the fib 0.236 level was held over the weekend and things are looking good for Bitcoin and the cryptocurrency market short term if the leading crypto can hold this support level. However, if the crypto market succumbs to the wider risk market sentiment, Santa Claus may not be coming to town for bullish investors after all.

Bitcoin Price Prediction and Technical Analysis

Leading Indicators – RSI and MACD

After spending almost a month below an RSI of 50, Bitcoin’s RSI has risen to 51.49 and is looking to reclaim this level today. If it closes above RSI 50, this would be the first indication that BTC is finally reversing direction.

Currently, the MACD is also looking promising, with a bullish crossover and both moving averages moving upwards while steadily widening the gap between one another as exhibited by the histogram.

Support and Resistances

Bitcoin price chart

Fib level 0.236 held at $16,800 over the weekend, meaning that this area, including the previous resistance point of $17,000, is now acting as a support in the event of a failed breakout.

If we plot an extended Fibonacci level for the recent price swing, it reveals that there is resistance at $17,700. This is in confluence with the daily EMA50 and a previous resistance back on November 10.

It’s still early in the month so if Bitcoin and the wider crypto markets can’t hold their recent gains, it’s still possible to see a rally closer to the end of the month, but either way, be cautious, as always.

In preparation for either a bearish or bullish scenario it’s wise to diversify your portfolio beyond BTC into some lower-cap gems, as well as some projects with strong fundamentals that are still in presale.
