BTC/USD is trading positive on Wednesday for the fifth day in the last six as the pair consolidated support at 6,880 on the last days of August and it built a leg for a new bullish move that drove BTC/USD to price above the 7,400 level.

Currently, BTC/USD is trading 0.40% positive at 7,390 on Wednesday. Since the August 14 bottom of 5,860, the cross has gained 26% to trade as high as 7,430 this week.

CoinDesk analyst Omkar Godbole affirms that bitcoin is adding indicators signaling a long-term bullish reversal. “The latest to join the list is the MACD histogram, which has moved above zero – turned bullish – for the first time since January. The MACD, which oscillates above and below the zero line, is one of the most popular technical indicators used to determine a trend’s reversal and momentum.”

“So,” Godbole adds, “it seems safe to say that the outlook as per the weekly chart is bullish. As a result, BTC could explore the upside towards the July highs above $8,500 in the next few weeks.”

With BTC/USD trading at 7,390, if the pair extends gains, it will face immediate resistance at the 200-day moving average at 7,800 level. Above there, 8,250 and July’s highs at 8,500.

To the downside, with a rejection of the 7,400 area, the pair will face support at the 50-day moving average at 7,070, and 6,840. Below there, please see for the super support below the 6,000 area.
