Bitcoin price daily chart 04-10-19 Zoomed in

Looking at the daily chart, we notice on Sep 24 BTC/USD declined to a lower trading zone 7,426 - 9,073 eyeing a test of the low end of it.

Hence, a close below the low end could press BTC/USD towards 6,450. Further close below this level could send Bitcoin even lower towards 5,629. In that scenario, the weekly support area and levels marked on the chart (zoomed in) should be kept in focus.

That said, any failure at closing below the low level of the zone could reverse the price’s direction, sending BTC/USD towards the high end of the zone. Further close above the high end may push the price towards 10,289. Nonetheless, the daily resistance levels underscored on the chart should be watched along the way.
