Bitcoin (BTC) Price May Rally, Market in Heavily Oversold Territory

Nick Cawley, Strategist

Bitcoin (BTC) Price Outlook, Chart and Analysis:

  • CCI indicator highlights oversold nature of the market.
  • Retail remain heavily long of Bitcoin – are they right?

IG Client Sentiment Datashows how retail are positioned in a variety of cryptocurrencies. See how daily and weekly positioning can affect our trading bias. Bitcoin (BTC) trade data shows 78.7% of traders are net-long, a strong contrarian bearish signal. However, recent daily and weekly changes in sentiment give us a stronger bearish contrarian trading bias.

A Guide to Day Trading Bitcoin and Other Cryptocurrencies.

Bitcoin’s recent heavy sell-off has left the cryptocurrency in heavily oversold territory, according to the CCI indicator (bottom of the chart), leaving the market open to a short-term upside rebound. The July 2 spike-low at $9,640 remains in place for now, and if this remains the case a move back to $10,800 before $11,470 and the recent double-top around $11,900 cannot be discounted. The 50-day moving average, just under $10,000, also remains supportive if it survives a re-test. A decisive break lower could see a re-test of a cluster of trades between $8,600 and $9,600.
