After selling off into the weekend, Bitcoin’s volatility dwindled on Sunday with an explosive move up on Monday. This is technically a bullish engulfing outside reversal with Sunday’s daily candle going outside of Saturday’s followed by a bullish daily candle on Monday that engulfed the entire last few weeks of selling.
The move up also reclaimed MicoStrategy’s break even price around $29800. The price is now within the range of consolidation that occurred in May and June 2022. It is likely Bitcoin will reconsolidate in this range again as old resistance levels tend to become new support levels. Outside of this consolidation range the next major resistance is not until $33k which represents the Jan 2022 low. This also coincides with the Monthly resistance level given by the cheat sheet.
One should be cautious with how high Bitcoin is trading above its 50 day and 200 day moving averages. If you are long from much lower prices consider taking profits or setting tighter stop losses. If Bitcoin is in fact in a bull market there will likely be trips to retest the 50 and 200 day moving averages. You can see exactly this behavior in March, and how profitable an opportunity it was to buy near the 200 day MA.

Possible Course of Action
Short near $33k expecting retest of $29.8k or even 50,200 day MA

Take profits if long from far below
