    Bitcoin could be facing a retrace in the short-term

    The flagship cryptocurrency is up 13% in the past 48 hours after a massive announcement from PayPal to support digital assets like BTC, ETH, BCH, and LTC. Bulls are eying up $20,000; however, there is a chance that Bitcoin will face a pullback first.

    The TD sequential indicator has presented a sell signal on the 12-hour chart, the first since September 18. Additionally, the RSI is heavily overextended, which also adds further selling pressure to Bitcoin.

    The In/Out of the Money Around Price chart shows the next substantial support area to be between $11,721 and $12,107, which means that Bitcoin could see a pullback down to $12,107 and possibly the psychological support level at $12,000 to re-test it.

    Another concerning trend can be seen using the BTC Holders Distribution chart. It seems that the number of whales holding between 10,000 and 100,000 coins has decreased by seven in the past week, indicating that they are taking profits.

    Nonetheless, most time frames are still in favor of the bulls, which are holding the uptrends. The 4-hour chart is presenting a possible bull flag with a MACD gaining a lot of strength. The price is way above the SMAs and EMAs.

    Observing the same IOMAP chart above, we can also notice that resistance above the $12,899 level is feeble compared to support. Another breakout above the $13,000 point can drive BTC up to $14,000.

    Crucial price levels for Bitcoin investors

    Despite Bitcoin's bullish sentiment and the entire cryptocurrency market, the flagship cryptocurrency could be facing a short-term pullback before climbing to its all-time high of $20,000. Validation of the sell signal on the 12-hour chart can push BTC down to $12.000.

    On the other hand, bulls are still in control over most time frames and are eying up $14,000 as the next price target. A breakout above the new psychological resistance level at $13,000 can achieve this goal as the IOMAP chart shows very little opposition to the upside.
