Published 1 hour ago

Bitcoin price trades on a lower note as the bulls could not sustain the higher levels. But, this could not be taken as a sign of a bearish probability. The 24-hour trading volume declined by more than 12% to $30,856,174,070, with the fall in the price. As a general rule, a fall in price with volume is a sign of a weak bearish trend. That means market participants are not interested in aggressive selling.

  • BTC price extends the losses for the fourth straight day.
  • However, the buyers find good support at around the $22,000 level.
  • A dip buying opportunity for investors as the candlestick formation suggests consolidation.

As of writing, BTC/USD reads at $22,278, down 1.90% for the day.

On the daily time frame, after giving a bullish breakout, the BTC price faces rejection near $24,270. This also coincides with the critical 50-day EMA (Exponential Moving Average). Thus making it a crucial level to trade.

In addition to that, the formation of multiple Doji candlesticks indicates indecision among investors.  For the past four-session, the price has been consolidating in a range of $$22,300 and $24,300.

The bulls would take the front seat once again if the next candlestick gives a daily close above $23,000, the high of the previous session. However, to sustain and continue with upside momentum more buyers are needed. An aggressive buying could take off the $26,000 mark.

On the hourly chart, BTC  breaks the lower trend line of the ascending channel, indicating a probable correction is on the cards. Further, the volume and price contraction pattern is forming near the higher levels. To sum up, bears capped the gains in the lower time frame.

If the price breaks it’s intraday low, then, we expect a good fall up to $21,800.


BTC could continue with its consolidation and little corrective pullback. However, traders are advised to enter the long position near the lower levels to capitalize on the fall.
