After the recovery of 11.81% on Thursday Some traders were waiting for the price to pull back to retest the lower supports. But since April 29, retailers have been buying with every drop.

Still, there are signs that Bitcoin needs a withdrawal. In the shorter periods, purchasing volume has decreased significantly, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) has also dropped from 77 to 63, and the dynamics in the MACD histogram decrease as the MACD moves below signal line value, while the price is between 9,750 and $ 9,900 remains.
Is the price of USD 9,300 BTC an option?
Since April 29, the price of Bitcoin has increased by 30%. This also means that the price has risen by more than 160% since Black Thursday autumn. thats why A retreat to retest lower support would be natural, and without the next halving, traders who bought at $ 3,750 and $ 7,600 would be eager to take profits.
In the event of a withdrawal below $ 9,800, the price is expected to find support in the zone of $ 9,400 to $ 9,300. The USD 9,400 level corresponds to the value of 20 SMA and the long-term downward trend line.
Meanwhile, $ 9,300 is targeted at a high-volume node in the VPVR. If USD 9,300 does not offer support, traders will focus on USD 9,000, which is close to the Fibonacci retracement of 78.6%.
