At the time of writing this article, the BTC/USD is hovering around $9,819, with a short-term bearish bias. The coin has lost about 2.3% in the last 24 hours while the pair is being affected by the current slowdown in the entire crypto market and has halted all attempts to recover since the fall of last week.

BTC/USD pair may drop to $9,200, $9,000 and $8,800 supports if the $9,500 support fails to hold. In the opposite direction, if critical support can continue to provide support for the market, definitely we can expect the Bitcoin price to come back to a resistance level of $10,300 before the market experience a rise far above the channel formation to reach the potential resistance levels at $10,700, $10,900 and $11,100 respectively. But as things stand, BTC is down and there is a high chance for a break than a bounce. The stochastic RSI is at the oversold zone, a further drop may cause the Bitcoin price to fall more but a buying pressure may visit the market soon.
