Bitcoin bulls on Friday failed to extend the price of the pioneer cryptocurrency above the $7,600 key level amid three successive gains through Thursday. The price o bitcoin pulled back on Friday to trade at around $7,508 as the bulls moved to take some profits.

From an extended view, the price of bitcoin is now trading within a slightly rising channel. It remains several levels above the 100-hour and the 200-hour SMA lines in the 60-min chart. The 14-hour RSI has pulled back off overbought levels to oscillate within the normal trading zone.

Bitcoin Price Fundamentals Overview

From a fundamental perspective, the price of bitcoin has suffered from the adverse effects of the coronavirus pandemic. However, just like the rest of the markets, that impact is now fully priced in and any positivity from simmering through the cracks of the global financial markets is bound to generate some upward momentum. This is exactly what has happened in the last few days. 

According to data collected last week, asset managers investing in cryptocurrencies are still inclined to the bear side of the market. Last week, total additions to their books showed 316 short positions versus 218 long positions added. Leveraged funds also appear to be following in the footsteps of asset managers albeit mildly. Last week they added 172 short positions versus 134 long positions. 

Given this week’s surge in the price of bitcoin, we could see a very different picture once the date for the week is out next week.
