$4000, Doji, Bearish Pennant, and EMA Resistance

The break above $4,000 has not really changed the interim bias of the bitcoin market. The cryptocurrency on Wednesday remained largely unchanged on its 24-hour adjusted timeframe.

The silence in the bitcoin market also alarmed bulls of their fading dominance after an impressive rally this week. The BTC/USD…
