BITFINEX:BTCUSD   Bitcoin / U.S. Dollar
A move above resistance at $8,500 would provide confirmation bitcoin's bear market has ended, the technical charts indicate.

Over the weekend, the cryptocurrency clocked a three-week high of $8,458 on Bitfinex, adding credence to the short-term bull reversal confirmed last Thursday. Further, the 30 percent rally from $6,425 (April 1 low) proved that the much-feared "death cross" indicator was in fact a bear trap.As seen in the chart above, the descending trendline , representing a series of lower price highs over the last four months, is still intact. The trendline hurdle is seen around $8,500. The 50-day moving average (MA) is also lined up at 8,516.

A high volume break above the confluence of the trendline and the 50-day MA could be considered the final confirmation of the bearish-to-bullish trend change.

That said, BTC's first attempt to scale the key resistance failed - running out of steam at $8,415 and falling back to $8,100 this morning. As of writing, the ascending ( bullish biased) 5-day MA is capping the downside in prices.

There may be clues as to the reason for the retreat in the short-duration chart below.
While that may be true, a convincing move above $8,500 (falling trendline hurdle as seen in the daily chart ) could be considered as an advance indicator of an impending break above $11,700. That's because the breach of the trendline hurdle would signal the end of the downtrend from bitcoin's December all-time high of around $20,000.
Comment: 1st Level of Resistance Broken
Is is better to miss 100 trades rather than facing 50% loss
I've been looking for new info regarding this 5th of the month pattern we've seen since 1/5/18. Curious as to how long this would last. So far it looks like the pattern has followed through. Things still look bullish after like 4/6/18. If the pattern still continues then we should see a downfall after 5/5/18. From what I've been reading it seems that this 5th of the month may come from Mt Gox selling off.
