BTC/USD – Daily Chart

Surprisingly, Bitcoin is showing some kind of weakness as it fell to $6,660. Unfortunately, the coin is showing some bearish signals which may create a further downward move. As the crypto continues to drop, we expect the market to reach a low of $6,400. The bulls and bears have a choice to make if the downward move reaches the low of $6,400. The market will move up at the $6,400 low if the bulls decide to hold that level.

However, if the $6,400 support cracks, the coin will find support at either $6,200 of $5,800. Nonetheless, it will not be a surprise if the selling pressure continues to a low of $5,500. Meanwhile, the bears broke the support line which is indicative of a bearish signal. Bitcoin is below 40% range of the daily stochastic. It indicates that the market is currently in a bearish momentum.
