The price of bitcoin (BTC/USD) on Monday continues to experience strong resistance just below the $10,000 level in a slightly bullish consolidative triangle formation. Bitcoin is trading within a wedge formation with a flat top and a rising base. 

It is currently pinned at around the 100-hour and the 200-hour SMA positions in the 60-min chart. Bitcoin has recently pulled back to reject a cross-over to overbought levels of the 14-hour RSI.

Bitcoin Price Fundamentals Overview

From a fundamental perspective, the BTC/USD is trading at a time of increased market uncertainty amid the coronavirus pandemic. The ongoing protests in the US have also increased volatility in the market, which has boosted investments in safe-haven assets. Bitcoin is increasingly becoming a safe-haven asset with declining volatility and increased acceptability. Its most recent halving has made it rarer thus improving its store of value. This will continue to boost its price against fiat currencies.

The latest US economic data appears to be weakening the SU dollar, which arithmetically boosts the BTC/USD pricing. Last week, the US non-farm payrolls posted more than 2.5 million new jobs against a forecast fo 8 million job losses. This inadvertently affected the greenback adversely. The ISM manufacturing PMIs and the non-Manufacturing PMIs returned mixed data, which again increased uncertainty in the US markets.  This week, traders will be looking forward to JOLTs Job openings and the Fed interest rate decision for guidance.
