? Opinion: the price of Bitcoin has already pushed off from the bottom

In the next few days, a bitcoin corrective price rally may develop, which, apparently, felt the bottom near the $4,000 mark – CoinDesk analyst Omkar Godbole shared his opinion. The main theses of his analyze:

“Bitcoin could rise above $5,000 in the next few days, as per the oversold RSI on the 3-day chart.

The overall bearish outlook would be invalidated if the corrective bounce ends up pushing prices well above the 10-day EMA of $5,242.

The sell-off would resume if BTC finds acceptance below the 200-week EMA of $4,182, opening the doors for a drop below the psychological level of $4,000.”
