Bitcoin's price rose above $6,500 Thursday, offering some respite for the badly battered bulls.

The world's largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization had fallen to $6,138 Wednesday at 16:00 UTC – its lowest level in 26 days, according to Bitfinex data. Yet, bitcoin's price was last seen at $6,500, up 5 percent from its most recent low.

What to make of the move? Clearly, investors did not want to miss a small opportunity in the form of a pullback that started August 1 and lasted all of 10 trading days.

Supporting the view is that the broader market has seen an uptick as well, best depicted by the total crypto market capitalization, up $10 billion on the day where its value currently stands at $235 billion.

As a result, other well-known cryptocurrencies are posting gains. Names like ethereum (ETH), EOS (EOS) and bitcoin cash (BCH) have each appreciated by at least 3% percent over the last 24-hours.

Daily Chart



So, where to for bitcoin? Right now, there are hints if no conclusions.

The Tweezer bottoms, identified by two equal-sized bearish and bullish candlesticks with minor wicks, demonstrates a reversal in the current trend.

Also worth noting is that the MACD indicator, which identifies trend changes and momentum, has printed its first bullish sign in 10 days after ticking up slightly back toward the neutral zero line.

But while all of that is true, the relative strength index (RSI) is approaching well-known resistance at 45.92. Further, the exponential moving averages (EMA 21-day and 55-day) have crossed, sending a mixed signal that would otherwise see prices fall and are requiring backing from other indicators, which currently show bullish.
