After the bullishness that dominated in the week ending 10 October, top cryptos should duck the week’s pivot points to support breakouts in the coming week.
BTC-USD increased by 13.37% during the week that ended on 10 October. With an 11.7% uptick from the previous week, the largest cryptocurrency ended last week at around $5.691. Mixed price reactions had BTC plunging to an intraweek low of $46,897 on Monday.
Overpowering the initial crucial support area at $42,965 saw Bitcoin surging to an intraweek peak of $56,450 on Sunday. That way, Bitcoin broke past 23.6% Fibonacci of $50,473 and the first resistance zone at $51,357.
The continuous rally witnessed BTC overshadowing the 2nd crucial resistance area located at $54,473. Meanwhile, the token closed the week past the second massive resistance despite plummets to sub-$55K levels. Bitcoin recorded five days in green, including Wednesday’s 7.43% upswing. That contributed to the week’s uptrend.
BTC’s Week Ahead
Bitcoin has to prevent the pivot around $52,679 to bolster a rally towards the initial massive support at $58,462. Meanwhile, the virtual coin will require broad market backing to overcome its previous week’s peak of $56,450. However, the first resistance will prevent BTC’s further uptick.
An extended surge might take Bitcoin towards the 2nd resistance at $62,232 before pullbacks. Breaching the pivot of $52,679 will see BTC hitting 23.6% Fibonacci of $50,473 and initial support around $48,909.
