As the bullish line for Bitcoin (BTC) begins to decline and the price enters a sideways pattern, crypto traders and investors are looking for signs that indicate when the next extension of the rally for the largest cryptocurrency by market cap may occur.
New price signal to watch the second part of Bitcoin bullish rally
Looking at the chart patterns, there are certain prominent signals that allow analysts to make reasonable assumptions about Bitcoin’s price in the near future, including observations made by crypto analysis team TradingShot using the TradingView platform on Jan.
Analysts first noted the implementation of the Adam and Eve (A&E) pattern (a double bottom pattern rising with twin bottoms at almost the same price), which has begun to form since the FTX boom in November and is consistent with its target.
“As you can see, Wednesday’s top was not only the result of the $21,500 resistance created by the November 5 top, but also completed a +18.00% rise from the December 14 high.”
According to the analysis, Bitcoin is currently trading sideways and moving to test the four hourly moving average at 50 data points (4H MA50) for the first time since Jan.

What to look for?
On the basis of these movements, “either this will lead to a correction or a prolongation of the rally” Confirmations or more precisely moving average convergence divergence ( MACD ) and relative strength index ( RSI ) indicators can be sought.
“First, take a look at the 4H MACD. A bullish cross would be a signal to enter round 2 of the rally. The 4H RSI has a clear higher low trendline as support and a lower high trendline is leading it there. A break above previous lower highs would again be a buy signal.”
As a reminder, a bullish cross occurs when the MACD line crosses above the signal line that presents an entry point or buying opportunity for traders, while a bearish crossover occurs when the MACD line crosses below the signal line that indicates a sell opportunity or a sell opportunity.
