Bitcoin Price Outlook
Bitcoin is testing its recent lows as a range of technical indicators begin to weigh on the cryptocurrency. The recently supportive 200-day moving average is now under threat and a close below here – currently at $9,183 – would produce a short-term negative signal. The price is also pushing back through a cluster of recent lows and a break and close below the October 26 low at $8,890 would be another bearish sign.
This October 26 low is also important as it is part of a gap on the chart between the October 25 high at $8.870 and the previously mentioned October 26 low at $8,890. For Bitcoin to turn bullish again, this gap needs to be filled. One mildly bullish signal comes from the 20-dma crossing above the 50-dma, indicating short-term bullish momentum.
If Bitcoin does turn lower, then a re-test of the October 23 multi-month low at $7,300 may occur although with pockets of support all the way down, this low may prove to difficult to achieve. A break above the 200-dma leaves a retrace back to $9,930 as the first target.
