BTC/USD – Daily Chart

Unexpectedly, the downward move was temporarily interrupted as the market reaches the oversold region. The market fell to $8,500 low and continued a sideways move. In the oversold region, buyers emerge to push the coin upward. However, the market will remain in the oversold region if buyers fail to emerge. From the price action, if  BTC is  fluctuating the bears can push the price to the next support at $8,400.

Unquestionably, Bitcoin has fallen below 20% range of the stochastic. This indicates that the selling pressure of BTC is overdone. It also means that the market has reached the oversold region. In the oversold region, the bearish momentum is strong. Also, buyers are generated to push Bitcoin upward. Above all, the price is below the 12-day EMA and 26-day EMA which indicates that the downtrend has resumed.

Meanwhile, Bitcoin is trading at level 22 of the Relative Strength Index period 14. The market is now in the oversold region of the RSI. Sellers will be unavailable to push BTC downward. Rather, buyers will be on hand to push Bitcoin upward. There, we expect the market to go up.
