The bears have continued to stay in the market as Bitcoin’s extend support to the $8500 zone overnight. Due to the price drop, the market has currently recorded a loss of about -1.2.6%. This time, if the $8500 support fails to suppress selling pressure, Bitcoin would further look for lower support.
Bitcoin (BTC) Price Analysis: Weekly Chart – Bearish
Key resistance levels: $8880, $9000, $9200
Key support levels: $8500, $8300, $8100
Bitcoin is looking bearish on the weekly chart, although it’s a necessary pullback which is likely to resume buying soon. But looking at the previous candle close, the bearish setup is just building up. We may see a weekly close of $8100 if the selling pressure elapses. Meanwhile, Bitcoin held immediate support at $8300 which could be the next selling target.
However, if the new support ($8500) can hold well, BTC could look for resistance around the $8800. Still, we need a weekly close above the $9000 resistance before we can validate a positive move. Once we clear the resistance, Bitcoin might reach $12000 in a couple of days. Currently, the technical indicators are on the downside, suggesting a bearish continuation.
Bitcoin (BTC) Price Analysis: Hourly Chart – Bearish
Looking at the hourly chart, Bitcoin is undergoing a lot of bearish pressure over the past few days. The latest price drop has made BTC to now trade in the $8500 zone. It appeared the market is looking for support around the $8000. It may take a few days for Bitcoin to reach this support due to the recent slow movement in price.
However, $8400 and $8300 may come in play soon. On the upside, there’s no bullish sign for BTC at the moment. Nevertheless, the $8700 and $8800 resistance may be explored if the bulls can push well. The technical RSI and MACD are defiantly bearish to show that Bitcoin is weak at the moment.
