Daily Price Outlook

During Friday's Asian trading hours, Bitcoin managed to set aside concerns regarding the resurgence of banking unease and sluggish U.S. economic growth, maintaining a comfortable lead above $29,000.\_Woods0/status/1651839446218838016?s=20

The price of the largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization was recently around $29,500, reflecting an increase of nearly 2.2% over the last 24 hours. BTC reached a high of $30,000 at one point; however, it still trails its peak of approximately $31,000 set in April.

Despite heavy liquidation of both short and long positions, as well as unverified reports of Bitcoin sales by the US government and the defunct Mt. Gox platform, investors seem to have put Wednesday's dramatic volatility behind them, when the cryptocurrency plunged to around $27,200 before bouncing back.

US equity markets rose as concerns over the modest 1.1% growth in the first quarter GDP and the issues faced by regional bank First Republic were overshadowed by surprisingly strong earnings from tech giants Microsoft, Google, and more recently, Meta.

The S&P 500, which has a significant technology component, and the tech-focused Nasdaq Composite both experienced gains of 2.4% and 2%, respectively.

In recent days, the performance of bitcoin demonstrates investors' confidence in the cryptocurrency's ability to maintain value under challenging conditions, according to Bob Baxley, Chief Technology Officer at decentralized finance (DeFi) platform Maverick Protocol, as reported by CoinDesk's Jocelyn Yang.

Retail investors must exercise caution with every move of Bitcoin, as it has experienced a highly turbulent month, and its future remains uncertain.

It is important to note that the cryptocurrency's price is still approximately 65% below its all-time high. Macroeconomic conditions in major markets, such as the U.S. and the UK, have contributed to this volatility.

BTC/USD – Technical Outlook

Bitcoin's price started a fresh increase above the $29,000 resistance, with the potential to rally if it moves above the $30,000 level. The price remained stable above the $28,000 support zone, with BTC bulls pushing it above $28,500.

A significant contracting triangle has formed with support near $29,250 on the hourly BTC/USD chart. Immediate resistance is near $29,800 and the $30,000 zone follows the triangle trend line. A close above $30,000 could lead Bitcoin toward $30,500, possibly the key barrier at $31,200. If Bitcoin's price fails to clear the $29,800 resistance, a fresh decline may start, with support near $29,250 and the triangle region.

A downside break below the triangle might send the price towards the 50% Fibonacci retracement level from the $27,258 low to the $29,882 high, with the next major support near $28,250 or the 100 hourly Simple Moving Average. Further losses could take Bitcoin towards $27,800 in the near term.
