Bitcoin (BTC) סיכוני נפילה לרמת תמיכת המפתח של $6,900, having failed to capitalize on signs of weakening bearish momentum yesterday.
The cryptocurrency’s technical charts saw a doji candle on Sunday, signaling short-term bearish exhaustion. למרות זאת, a corrective rally remained elusive as bitcoin ran into offers above $7,400 and closed (as per UTC) בְּ- $7,143 – the lowest daily close since April 12, according to Bitfinex.
Prices continued to drop today, with bitcoin hitting a 7-week low of $7,040 this morning. At time of writing, the price was at $7,130.
The losses signal a continuation of the sell-off from the recent high of $9,990 and indicate scope for a drop to $6,900 – a level that the bulls need to defend at all cost. If they can’t, prices may go as low as $5,000.
BTC created a bearish outside-day candle on Monday. These occur when a high is above the previous day’s high and the low is below the previous day’s low. In simple terms, it means trading on Monday started with optimism and ended with pessimism.
The bearish outside-day usually indicates a bullish-to-bearish trend change. למרות זאת, when viewed against the backdrop of Sunday’s doji candle, the bearish outside-day signals revival/continuation of the sell-off from the May 5 high of $9,990.
The above chart also shows the 5-day and 10-day moving averages (MA) are trending south in favor of the bears.
מדד העוצמה היחסית (RSI) has dropped to 30.00, indicating oversold conditions.
לפי historical data, bitcoin climbs every time the RSI on the daily chart drops to or below 30.00. למרות זאת, the historical pattern may not come into play this time, as BTC’s long-term technical studies have turned in favor of the bears.
לדוגמה, the weekly RSI is below 50.00 (in the bearish territory). נוסף, BTC recently closed below the 50-week MA for the first time since 2015, adding credence to the argument the long-run bull market is over. בינתיים, the 5-month and 10-month MAs are beginning to slope downwards in favor of the bears.
כתוצאה, it’s likely that BTC will drop to $6,900 (triangle support) soon – although it may not happen in the next 24 hours as the short-duration chart shows a temporary bullish setup.
BTC has created lower lows in the last 48 שעות, but the RSI has not followed suit – a bullish divergence that indicates scope for a minor corrective rally.
- BTC will likely drop to $6,900 (triangle support). This is the last line of defense for the bulls. A daily close (as per UTC) below $6,900 would open the doors to $5,400 (נוֹבֶמבֶּר 2017 נָמוּך).
- A minor corrective rally to $7,300 could be in the offing, but will likely be short-lived.
- A break above the 50-week MA, currently seen at $7,702 would abort the bearish view.
- Only a convincing move above $9,990 would signal a bearish-to-bullish trend change.
