In the past two sessions, bitcoin price gained bullish momentum above the USD 9,200 resistance. BTC is up almost 8% and it even tested the USD 9,550 resistance zone. If the bulls remain in action, there are chances of a sustained upward move above the USD 9,550 and USD 9,650 levels. The next key resistance is near USD 9,880, followed by USD 10,000.
