A key moving average is buoying low-timeframe BTC price action, which continues to preserve $27,000, data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView shows.

Bitcoin may have retraced from its local highs above $28,000, but bears have not yet sparked a full retrace of the move.

For some, this is increasingly positive news, as BTC/USD is now successfully holding a long-term trend line lost as support earlier in August.

This comes in the form of the 200-day exponential moving average (EMA), currently at $27,180.

Some hourly candles closing below into Aug. 31 were not enough to spark a more significant breakdown, and Bitcoin is tightly hugging the 200-day EMA into the August monthly close.

“Bitcoin is back above the daily EMA 200-Line,” popular trader Moustache told X subscribers.

“A lot of people are waiting for a better entry, but I don't think it's going to happen.”

That perspective contrasts strongly with the slew of more bearish market takes from various well-known sources, many of which call for a return to $25,000 or lower.

Still optimistic, however, is fellow trader Jelle, who likewise placed significance on Bitcoin holding above $27,000.

“This is exactly what I want to see after an impulse. Spike up, shallow retrace, hold at key HTF level. Send it higher,” he summarized on Aug. 30.

A subsequent update revealed plans for longs in preparation for BTC/USD “taking out” local highs.
