Bitcoin (BTC) Price Analysis

  • A tepid dead-cat bounce at best.
  • Negative signals all over the chart.

Bitcoin Price Action - Lower for Longer Confirmation

After Thursday’s heavy sell-off across the cryptocurrency market, market leader Bitcoin continues to struggle to make any headway against a negative technical set-up with lower prices likely. The tight trading range breakout has seen BTC break below the decending triangle with little pick-up in trading volume. Bitcoin also trades below all three moving averages with horizontal support now seen between the June 24 low at $5,769 and the August 14 low at $5,887. A break and close below these levels turns the outlook very negative and coud see BTC decline back to the September 2017 low just under $3,000.

DailyFX analyst Paul Robinson wrote last week that Bitcoin “still has significant downside risk” and that it could decline another 85%.
