Bitcoin to Form Golden Cross but It Cannot Guarantee a Bull Run [newsbtc.com]
The last of such moves occurred in April 2019, wherein the price surged by 170 percent three months after making a Golden Cross. Similarly, the same candlestick pattern in October 2015 followed bitcoin registering one of the history’s biggest price rallies – from $300 to $20,000 in just two years.

As it stands, Bitcoin might need some more time to regain its momentum and try again for the crucial ascending trend-line resistance. In any case, it’s important to pay attention to the $10,000 support level from below and the $10,500 resistance from above, which is also this year’s high.
