Bitcoin Bulls have been having a great go in the past few days as its latest upward trend sees Bitcoin taps a three months high this week. Amid regulation controversies from the US government on taxation, the Bulls are shining but bearish divergence is seen to have formed, and short-term correction looms.
Having backtested the 200 day MA about twice this week, forming bearish divergence, the possibility of a near-term correction looms. Normally, Bitcoin would need to cement in a range around the 200-day MA to avoid falling below critical levels.
Obviously, Bitcoin’s mid to long-term trend has improved significantly in recent times, and momentum continues to strengthen. Bulls are now waiting for a major buy signal to flash on the weekly chart. Trading volume needs to pick up the pace, only when that happens a potential bull rally can be expected.
Overall, the outlook looks bullish in the long run.

What Experts Are Saying
Analyst and Bloomberg Intelligence senior commodity strategist Mike McGlone believes in the possibility of Bitcoin playing catch up to meet with ETH 2021 gains, and that if this happens, we could see BTC approach $100,000 this year.
In terms of ETH and BTC rivalry, McGlone maintained that from Ether’s past indices, Ether could surpass Bitcoin’s market cap by 2022 or 2023, however, he held strongly the opinion that Bitcoin will hit the $100,000 target.
Pseudonymous Twitter analyst, Rect Capital noted that the $45200 has recently been a hard nut to crack for Bitcoin. If Bitcoin is able to hold this level, price is expected to move higher.

CryptoCaptain Sentiment Analysis: 75% bearish
Bitcoin hit a 3-months high this week, market sentiment however remains bearish though bullish factors keep growing. Another correction lingers, though a short-term one.
Bitcoin Market Outlook
Bitcoin is in an uptrend but faces resistance around 47k to 48k. A recent correction to 44k was followed by a solid bounce today. CryptoCaptain sentiment is still bearish, but we expect a quick reversal to the bullish territory. Truly breaking resistance at 48k means continuation because at that level the crash in mid-May 2021 was initiated and reclaiming it is a bullish sign.
However, a fake-out above resistance, especially over the coming weekend is possible. That means it seems quite likely that we get some correction before continuing the uptrend. This correction, if it comes, might be a good opportunity to enter the trend for latecomers.
