Bitcoin is on the road to recovery. Strong bull buying pushed the price above hard-up resistance to $18,388 on January 12. This is the first sign that the bears may be losing their grip.

The sharp rise of the past few days has pushed the Relative Strength Index (RSI) into overbought territory, indicating a possible correction or consolidation in the near term.

If the bulls prices do not dip below the breakout level of $18,388, this would indicate a change in sentiment from a rally sell to a dip buy. The BTC/USDT pair can then continue its recovery towards the next major resistance at $21,500.

If the Bears want to slow the positive momentum, they will have to quickly pull the price back below $18,388. The pair could then reach its 20-day exponential moving average (EMA) of $17,378.

The 20-day upsloping EMA at $266 and the RSI near the overbought zone indicates buyer gain. If the price falls below $300, support can be found at the 20-day EMA of $266. A strong bounce from this level could catapult the BNB/USDT pair into the $318 to $338 resistance zone.

Contrary to this assumption, if the price eases and slides below the moving average, the pair could retest the $250 to $236 support area.
