As predicted, a big movement came for bitcoin following a week of consolidation. Analysts have been mixed all week but those that leaned towards bearish were right as the king of crypto plunged back into four figures a few hours ago.
Bitcoin Nearing New Low
A huge red candle resulted in a dump of over 9% for BTC a few hours ago. The pennant that was identified by analysts yesterday reached its conclusion and what appeared to be an upside breakout actually turned into a massive slide.
From an intraday high of $10,270, bitcoin dumped almost $700 in less than an hour. BTC found temporary support at around $9,650 before losses started to accelerate again an hour or so ago. The next slide went even deeper, bottoming out at around $9,330 according to Tradingview.com
The next support level lies at the previous lowest point which is around $9,000. If that cannot hold, BTC will fall back into the $8k region as many have predicted. Trader and analyst ‘CryptoFibonacci’ has been looking at the daily chart which shows support where a number of technical indicators align.
I just switched this Line chart over to a candle chart and put Fibs on this. And low and behold, look what we have. Fib cluster, 200 day ma, gap fill area and the old resistance/new support area. That is a massive area.
