Bitcoin (BTC) Price Prediction – February 16
Bitcoin (BTC) fell below $10,000 for the first time in a week after dropping $500 in an hour.
BTC/USD Long-term Trend: Bullish (Daily Chart)
Resistance Levels: $10,800, $11,000, $11,200
Support Levels: $9,000, $8,800, $8,600
The price of BTC/USD fell below the level of psychological support at $10,000 in the early hours of trading yesterday in the US market, as buyers take a break from the prolonged uptrend that the superior crypto has experienced since the beginning of this year. BTC/USD charts are now signaling an upcoming bearish run as the price experienced a $500 dump to trade at $9,910, as at the time of writing.
However, in one of the most shocking moves earlier yesterday, the Bitcoin bulls lost their strength holding on to the key support level at $10,000, as bears took over the market to push BTC’s price 5% lower. The BTC/USD looks set to drop lower as the market adjusts from the skyrocketing momentum in the past month or so.
Moreover, BTC/USD is trading just below the $10,000 resistance level. In case of an upward trend, the next possible target is the $10,200 support turned resistance level. The next major level is $10,400 before the 2020 high at $10,500. The potential resistance levels to watch are $10,800, $11,000 and $11,200 while the critical support levels are $9,000, $8,800 and $8,600 as the RSI (14) moves below the 60-level.
BTC/USD Medium – Term Trend: Bearish (4H Chart)
Looking at the 4-hour chart, the bears have been dominating the market tremendously, but the bulls are trying to defend the $9,800 support as well. Meanwhile, the $9,600 and below may come into play if BTC breaks below the mentioned supports.
But if the buyers can reinforce and power the market, traders can expect a retest at $10,000 resistance level and breaking this level may further allow the bulls to reach $10,200 and above. The RSI (14) crosses below the 40-level which indicates that more bearish signals are on the way.
