BTC`s downward trend reached all the way down to $31,200 support level yesterday. And today it was able to break the crucial $30,000 support and continue the decline. At the time of writing this article it stands at $29,700 and the risk of it reaching $28,800 is still high. In this article, we shall take a closer look at BTC`s past 24-hour chart and by technical analysis try our best to make short-term predictions about it.
- Bitcoin`s downward movement continued in the past 24 hours and broke the $31k and $30k support levels.
- As of now, BTC is under $30k and the price candles are located below the SMA100
- The downward hourly price channel has also been broken, giving it a solid chance of coming down to $28,800
Taking a look at the 1-hour chart, we will see that BTC is on a downward price channel. Yesterday, on its way down, the broke the $31,200 support level. After that, it reached $30,500 and finally, in the past couple of hours, the price came under $30,000 and has even touched the bottom of the channel at $29,500.
Bitcoin went all the way down to $29,488 and had a reversal to make up for the loss. On its way, the $30,000 is the very first important resistance level followed by the $30,500 and $30,700. This resistance level is closely located to the 50% Fibonacci retracement (in the latest drop from $$31,920 to $29,488). If BTC manages to break these resistance levels, the $31,200, the SMA100 and the $31,900 zone will be the next important resistance levels. However, it also could be a temporary pullback as it could continue the bearish trend after a short upward movement.
On the other hand, if BTC fails to break the $30,000 and $30,500 resistance levels, the bearish trend will surely continue. In that case, the first support will be at $29,500. If the price manages to move down beyond that point, we should expect the $29,200 and $28,800 levels to support the price. However, if the decline is persistent enough to go below the $28,800, the next support level will be at $28,000.
