BTC/USD pair was able to attain a fresh 2020 high at $10,406. However, it is now focusing BTC a new bullish wave over $10.5k in the near term.
In recent times, there was a downside retracement under supports at $10k and $9,850. The price was able to test the $9.7k zone thereby forming a modest support base.
This led to a new upsurge over the $9,850 barrier and the 100 hourly SMA. Further, the bearish channel of the previous day was crossed close to $9,760.
It paved the way for additional upsides over $10k resistance. The price eventually surged past the $10.2k barrier and attained a fresh 2020 high at $10,406. Right now, the pair is correcting gains beneath $10,350.
