The largest cryptocurrency fights to keep support at $28,000 intact at the start of the new week after breaking out to a 10-month high of $29,216 in March. Bitcoin and Ethereum are the two best-performing assets across global markets even as regulators battled to mitigate the effects of the banking crisis in the United States and Switzerland.

Bitcoin price is trading at $27,800 at the time of writing, after printing two consecutive bearish candles on the four-hour chart. With support at $28,000 no longer viable at the moment, bulls could be looking at $27,730 to tap into the liquidity provided by the 100-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA).

In other words, failure to keep the price above $28,000 on Monday may have forced buyers to resolve to wait for a lower price level, before jumping in and pushing for the much-anticipated climb above $30,000.

The performance Bitcoin put out in March was remarkable, to say the least. As the banking crisis in the US wreaked havoc in other global markets, Bitcoin not only held its cool, it gained over 24% in value.

Experts believe that Bitcoin has over the years matured to be considered a reliable hedge against some uncertainties in the traditional financial sector.

The second-largest crypto Ethereum continues to follow closely in Bitcoin’s footsteps amid predictions of a run up to $3,000 as soon as the psychological resistance at $2,000.

According to Captain Faibik, a popular analyst with about 54k followers on Twitter, “a weekly close above $29k will open the doors for a rally to $38k” citing the challenges bulls are facing when “struggling to retain the 29k S/R crucial level.”

On-chain data by CryptQuant suggests “the end of surrender (capitulation) period” is here—and the path with the least resistance is to the upside. “It may be a boring period, but the fact that we have already passed the undervalued phase excites us,” CoinLupin an author at Crypto Quant said.

Where Is Bitcoin Price Headed?

Bitcoin’s technical outlook from the four-hour timeframe chart depicts a short-term bearish trend until bulls are able to take back the reins. Notice the position of the largest crypto asset beneath the 50-day EMA (line in red) at $28,000.

If bulls fail to reclaim this support at $28,000 in Friday’s session, we could be looking at a retest of $100-day EMA (line in blue) at $27,333. If push comes to shove, and overhead pressure overwhelms the buyer congestion, Bitcoin price might drop to the region between $26,841 and $26,632.

For now, the path with the least resistance is to the downside, as Bitcoin is weighed down by a sell signal from the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator. Notice the MACD line holding below the signal line in red and crossing below the mean line at 0.00 into the negative region.

Traders looking forward to shorting Bitcoin price may, however, want to wait until the asset breaks support at the 100-day EMA, mentioned at $27,730. Otherwise, BTC may have taken a breather ahead of another significant breakout beyond $30,000.

The daily timeframe chart affirms the same bearish outlook as Bitcoin price fights to hold short-term support at $27,800. As much as investors would want to see BTC above $28,000 and subsequently $30,000, it is not prudent to ignore the possibility of a bearish outcome, at least in the short term before bulls can tighten their grip on the uptrend.

Adding credence to the bearish outlook is the Relative Strength Index (RSI) bearish divergence, which occurs when the RSI, a momentum oscillator, forms lower highs while the price action forms higher highs, as illustrated on the chart.

This often signals that the bullish momentum in the market is fading and a bearish trend will likely follow. Traders use the RSI to identify possible trend changes in the market and the ongoing retreat from the overbought region shows that sellers have the upper hand, for now.

If the RSI line in purple stays below the moving average in yellow, Bitcoin price may continue to explore downstream levels at $27,730 as analyzed. A break and hold below $27,000 could open a can of worms with BTC likely to meet a significant sell-off to the 50-day EMA (line in red) at $25,000.

According to the On-Balance-Volume (OBV), indicator inflows in BTC markets fall slightly below outflows. This means Bitcoin faces a higher probability of sliding lower than the prevailing market value of $28,858 as opposed to immediately jumping to $30,000.

That said, some of the key levels investors and traders would be watching on Monday are the pivotal $28,000, the 100-day EMA on the four-hour chart at $27,730, and the position of both the RSI and the MACD in reference to this analysis.
