Bitcoin retains $17,200 after an overnight squeeze takes BTC price action to within reach of one-month highs.
Bitcoin attempts new monthly high
Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView showed BTC/USD cooling volatility once more after hitting $17,300 on Bitstamp.
The pair had begun by taking liquidity at the Dec. 8 Wall Street open, this snowballing to see it challenge one-month highs from Dec. 5.
For those already betting on upward continuation, the move came as little surprise, with the coast still clear to add to the gains.
“The move to 18-19k $BTC continues,” popular trader Credible Crypto summarized.
A previous tweet from Dec. 7 explained the rationale, with invalidation set at $16,000 support.
“Lows cleaned up and as if on cue Binance apes showing up to support the mid 16k’s,” part of accompanying comments read:
“Maybe one more push into 16.4-16.5k and then expecting a reversal back up and continuation to 18-19k targets.”
Fellow trader Cheds, meanwhile, eyed potential continuation of volatility, with BTC/USD tagging its upper Bollinger Band on 4-hour timeframes.
At the time of writing, 4-hour candles remained near the upper band, with both still expanding in a classic prelude to increased volatility.
