BTCUSD – Daily Chart

BTC/USD falls toward $10,300 once again as the largest cryptocurrency embarked on a support smashing exercise after failing to hold above $59,300 following a significant breakout in the last few days. Therefore, the bearish control is seen across the market with other major digital assets posting similar losses as they trade below the 9-day moving average.

Where is BTC Price Going Next?

BTC/USD is trading at $57,590.91 with an intraday loss of 2.3%. The prevailing trend is bearish with expanding volatility. The first digital asset is currently consolidating in a bearish flag pattern. Meanwhile, a break down from this pattern is supposed to continue in the direction of the previous trend. In this case, BTC/USD is expected to drop and stay below $9-day MA and could move towards the critical support levels at $52,000, $54,000, and $56,000.

However, should Bitcoin price remains above the moving averages; the price could rise to $60,000 vital resistance. A further bullish drive could push the price to $64,000, $66,000, and $68,000 resistance levels. The technical indicator Relative Strength Index (14) is revealing a sign of trend reversal, which shows a possible more bearish momentum may continue to play out.
