The Bitcoin price is trading inside a horizontal channel with resistance and support at $9,800 and $9,000 respectively. If the current price decrease holds, it will have major bearish implications based on the daily time-frame and the channel breakdown. BeInCrypto’s current market outlook is neutral, slightly leaning on bearish.
Bitcoin Price Highlights
- Bitcoin broke down from an ascending triangle.
- It is trading inside a horizontal channel.
- Bitcoin has fallen below its 200-day moving average.
- It is in the process of breaking down from the channel.
Bitcoin broke down from the ascending triangle it had been trading in since Oct 31. Following this, it validated the previous support line.
Currently, it has created a double bottom characterized by long lower wicks at $9,050, both signs of buying pressure.
Looking at the daily chart, we can see that BTC has finally decreased below its 200-day moving average (MA).
However, the price has yet to close below it, and there are more than 12 hours until the candle’s close.
Since the price is currently in a major support area, we could definitely see the creation of another lower wick if the price gains strength and initiates an upward move.
On the other hand, the bearish scenario would have us decreasing all the way to the previous resistance line at $8,700 in order to validate it, before beginning an upward move.
Looking at the horizontal channel, we can see that the price has breached the support with a wick and is in the process of breaking down.
However, it still has not done so, barely holding on to the support line.
As for future movement, Bitcoin could see a fake breakdown taking place followed by an upward movement towards the resistance line.
This would fall in line with the hypothesis laid out in the daily time-frame in which the price validates the resistance line before moving upward. In this case, it would make a low around $8,700-$8,800.
