Bitcoin Price Technical Picture
According to applied technical indicators on the daily chart, Bitcoin is likely to extend the break below a two-month-long ascending trendline. With the RSI sinking fast towards 30 (oversold region) there is a possibility that bearish pressure will continue to hover a while longer. Moreover, the widening gap between the 100-day SMA and the 50-day SMA clearly shows that the bears are comfortable in the driver seat. Support is expected at $9,500, $9,300 as well as $9,000.
