The dominant cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, has started 2020 with a surge, rallying in excess of 23%, low-to-high, since last Friday. This rally has also pulled other cryptocurrencies off their multi-week lows with double-digit gains commonplace. The daily chart now throws up a mixture of bullish and bearish signals over the short- and medium-term.

Using the CCI indicator, the latest rally has pushed Bitcoin into heavily overbought territory and may signal a pull back in the short-term as the market looks to gain some equilibrium. The CCI reading is at its highest level in nine months. Bitcoin remains below the 200-day moving average, but the spot price is quickly catching up this long-term indicator.

Positive signs remain however with BTC breaking sharply above both the 20- and 50-day moving averages at the start of the week, a sign that the medium-term sentiment is bullish. The pattern of lower lows started in late-June last year has also been broken. For further confirmation that Bitcoin’s bear market is over, a close above the October 28 lower high at $9,957 needs to be made. This would also take out the 200-dma currently at $9,238. The average true range (ATR) indicator has picked-up fractionally recently but remains well below levels seen in mid-July.
