BTC/USD: Not Enough Fuel to Conquer the $10,000 Mark?
The last day of the week started on a positive note for Bitcoin (BTC); however, it could not reach the $9,500 mark. This means that this was a false breakout.
Looking at the hourly chart, a long wick confirms pressure by the bears as well as a declining trading volume. What is more, the lines of the Moving Average Convergence/Divergence (MACD) are going down and already located in the red. All in all, this means that a drop is more likely to occur than a rise. The $9,070 mark is the nearest support level for one more potential bounce.
Looking at the daily chart, the decline can be even more profound as there is a potential for buyers based on analysis of the trading volume. The last level of support before the bearish scenario comes into play is at the $8,800 mark. However, the bears are unlikely to break it for the first time as it is a far retest. TO sum it up, the aforementioned support price at $8,800 may be attained by the end of the month.
Looking at the weekly time frame, Bitcoin (BTC) has been trading sideways for the last few weeks. However, such price action is more favorable to the bears as the trading volume goes down. What is more, there are lowering heights every week.
When applying the Fibonacci retracement to the chart, it is crucial to pay attention to the 38.2% level, which corresponds to $7,900. If the bulls cannot fix above $10,000 in the next days, then the previously mentioned support level may be reached next month.
At press time, Bitcoin was trading at $9,336.
