The RSI is also moving on the neutral territory due to the consolidation of Bitcoin.

For the day ahead, BTC will need to break above the 9-day EMA and revisit the horizontal resistance of $34,788.08. If the bulls succeed to break above this price level, uptrend for the market will resume and traders can leverage on the anticipated broken resistance to long their position.
