Bitcoin price prediction: Current price overview
The Bitcoin price is firm. After last week’s slides, bulls appear to be back in contention after a strong close of the week.
At the time of writing, the BTC price is changing hands at $10,680. It is down from intra-day highs of $10,759 and up from lows of $10,640.
At spot levels, bulls are in contention against the USD—at equilibrium in the last 24 hours. Notably, it remains flat versus ETH, a coin which also seems to be snapping back to bullish after last week’s fears.
Regardless of today’s trend, bears are in control in the immediate term. From a top-down approach, bulls may be in control.
However, for trend continuation, a sharp close above $11,000 and $11,200 complete with high trading volumes, unwinding losses of Sep 3 could be a breather for optimistic bulls.

In either case, a definite trend will be established once a break above or below the current consolidation.
Odds of a retest of $9,800 will increase if bears force Bitcoin prices below the primary support trend line while a moonshot to $12,500 will be in the offing once bulls overcome the strong liquidation zone of $11,000 and $11,200.
