Analyst: No Volume on Current Bitcoin Top, Reversal Unlikely
Following another six months of downtrend starting in mid-2019, Bitcoin price escaped from the clutches of bearish traders and went on a powerful bull run beginning on around December 17, 2019.
Since then, the asset and the rest of the altcoins across the crypto market have been on a steady upward trajectory, and up until recently showed no signs of slowing down.
But the latest correction is nothing but a little bump in the road, according to one respected crypto analyst, who believes the Bitcoin. uptrend will resume very soon.

The current high of the 2020 rally rests at roughly $10,500, or slightly below it on some platforms, setting a lower high while setting a higher high on daily timeframes on others.
Above $10,500, Bitcoin price will need to break above resistance at $10,800, and then $11,500. Above those two levels rests $14,000 which caused a six-month downtrend after Bitcoin first revisited the resistance level following a year-long bear market.

After another six months of building up momentum and confidence, the first-ever cryptocurrency may finally have the strength to push through the level and head toward a retest of the former all-time high of $20,000.
A breach of the level would send Bitcoin into a full-blown bull market, and one where irrational exuberance and talks of Lambos and moonshots return in a major way.
