Can Bitcoin bulls sustain the uptrend to $40,000?
The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator recently flipped bullish, affirming the recovery from $31,000 to $37,000. As the MACD line stroke above the signal line, a call to buy was heeded. Note that a break into the positive region (above the zero line) may encourage more investors to join the market, thereby adding credence to the bullish narrative.

The SuperTrend indicator has also flipped bullish with a buy signal, hinting at an impressive turnaround following the appreciably deep beginning of the week. This call to sell occurred as the indicator moved below the price and changed from red to green.
It is worth mentioning that the SuperTrend follows the trend of an asset while accounting for the volatility in the market. The buy signal implies that the general direction would be upward; hence investors should consider taking long positions.
On the flips side, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) shows that the bullish momentum from the support has fizzled out. This follows a possible correction before the RSI hits the overbought area. On the downside, a retreat toward the midline will indicate that bears are getting stronger. Support at the 100 SMA and the 50 SMA must be defended to avert another to $33,000 and $31,000, respectively.
