BTC/USD – Daily Chart

Bitcoin also has a second breakdown after an unsuccessful attempt to push the price above $10,400 overhead resistance. Thereafter, the upward move was hampered as the market takes a breather. BTC is consolidating with small body candlesticks like Doji and Spinning tops. These candlesticks describe the indecision between the buyers and sellers about the direction of the market. The market will take a stand after this consolidation.

On the upside, if the bulls fail to break above the overhead resistance, the bears will take the initiative. We will see a repeat of the price action in October and November 2019 where BTC fell to the low of $7,000. Bitcoin has fallen below a 40% range of the daily stochastic. However, the stochastic bands a making a U-turn indicating a bullish momentum
