The relative strength index is also bullish with a reading of 66 but the indicator is not yet overbought suggesting bulls could push the price higher. As mentioned previously, during strong rallies Bitcoin price can continue surging higher regardless of multiple indicators flashing overbought readings so traders are advised to keep a close eye on trading volume, the Chaikin Money Flow oscillator and also be wary if a double top candlestick pattern forms as this would be an early sign of a short term reversal.
