Bitcoin's Price Pullback Risks Bear Revival Below $6.9K

On the other hand, the short term case would weaken whether the cryptocurrency finds approval under the 100-day moving average (MA) of 6,905.


  • A UTC near below $6,905 will confirm a spinning high speed reversal and strengthen the odds of a downside fracture of this rising wedge design.
  • An increasing wedge breakdown would signal a resumption of their sell-off from the July high of 8,507 and can yield a drop to $6,000 (February low).
  • A close today above the 100-day MA will keep the bulls from the match and allow a continued move over $7,200 from the next couple of days.

Bitcoin (BTC) bulls need to shield key support at $6,905, else the short-term bullish prognosis would be invalidated.

The pullback from the last day’s high of 7,139 does not appear as a surprise, even since the 21 percentage rally observed in the last two weeks was appearing overstretched yesterday.

Acceptance under the wedge support would confirm the downtrend from the July high of 8,507 has declared and a bullish-to-bearish trend change, that is, the rally from 5,859’s low has ended. In this case, lows could be revisited by BTC under $ 6,000.
