At the end of the week, the volume of purchases did not grow much and remained at an average level. If the pair consolidates in the area of the Volume Profile indicator line, buyers will try to break through the resistance of the 100% fibo level ($19,666) once again.

On the 4H chart, Bitcoin (BTC) remains bullish despite the drop from $19,400. The selling volume is low, which makes it difficult for bears to fix below $18,000. Thus, most of the liquidity is located above $19,200. In this case, there is a high chance of seeing $19,500 this week.

On the bigger time frame, buyers are also dominating according to the last two candles. Thus, the lines of the MACD indicator are about to switch to green, which will confirm the rising potential to the resistance at $19,900.

Bitcoin is trading at $19,085 at press time.
