BTC/USD: Do the Bulls Have Enough Strength for a Continued Run?
Bitcoin (BTC) is finishing out the week with a 1.78% drop from the previous week. After a failed attempt to fix above $10,000, the leading crypto has lost 1,000 points and is now trying to hold the $9,400 mark.
Looking at the hourly chart, Bitcoin (BTC) has been trading between the narrow range $9,300 and $9,500 for the last 2 days. Trading volume remains low, which makes it difficult for buyers to buy back the coin.
If the bulls do not break the $9,500 mark shortly, then pressure from the bears will become more apparent and a retest of the $9,300 and potentially the $9,200 marks will likely occur soon. The falling lines of the Bollinger Bands also confirm this statement.
Looking at the 4H time frame, the bulls are also losing strength, which is confirmed by the low liquidity level and the decreasing trading volume. Bitcoin (BTC) made a false breakout from the $9,500 mark, which means that this level was an important resistance marker and was difficult to break from the first time. As for the more likely price forecast, the coin might face another drop between the $9,000-$9,050 levels before another wave of growth. However, if the bears fix below $9,000, then the bullish scenario will be cancelled.
Looking at the daily chart, a decline is also the most likely scenario as Bitcoin (BTC) needs to accumulate power in order to maintain the bullish trend. In this regard, the 78.6% level ($8,600) of the Fibonacci retracement is of significant importance. The drop might be stopped there if buyers show an effort.
At press time, Bitcoin was trading at $9,416.
