Bitcoin (BTC) rallied back above $24,000 at Wall Street’s open on Feb. 17 as analysis favored a “consolidation and continuation” higher.

Bitcoin faces a key level to “break” the bear trend.

Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView showed that BTC/USD recovered some overnight losses after falling to $23,369 on Bitstamp.

The pair had made fresh six-month highs the day before, which faced strong resistance in the form of two weekly moving averages (MAs) and a strong sell-off wall.

Scott Melker, the trader and podcast host known as “The Wolf of All Streets,” emphasized the importance of levels acting like lines in the sand for bulls.

“$25,212. I’ve been yelling at this number for weeks. A break above that (ideally close) will result in a higher high for the first time since $69,000,” he said tweeted on the weekly chart on February 16th.

Examining activity in the exchanges and monitoring material indicators for resources identified rising supply support with the spot price taking a hit.

“The infamous BTC buying wall that we have been tracking for the past 5 weeks has just strategically shifted again, this time just above the 21-day moving average,” it reads written down next to a chart.

“This entity seems to play the technique level by level.”

Accompanying data from Binance’s BTC/USD order book also showed resistance rising as high as $25,600 – well above the location of the 200-week ma, which flipped from support to resistance last August.

Traders: Crucial support at $22,800

Cointelegraph contributor Michaël van de Poppe, meanwhile, expressed optimism demand “Consolidation and continuation.”

“Bitcoin sees a rise off the high and declines a bit there, but that doesn’t mean we’re going to $12,000,” he argued in a tweet that day.

The day before, Van de Poppe argued that the period from March to June should be a “party” in all crypto markets.

“It’s hard to define a proper strategy when everyone around you is yelling the opposite. That’s what happens at these aid rallies,” he said continued on the current state of crypto sentiment.

“People are stuck in the mindset of the past 18 months and can only expect further downside. So they keep closing.”

It was long traders who still felt most of the pain on Feb. 16, as Bitcoin’s decline liquidated $45 million in positions, data from Coinglass shows. Cross-crypto long liquidations hit nearly $125 million.
