While prices remain near an all-time high, Bitcoin is showing a weaker price by the day. Everyone was eying this dominant cryptocurrency, awaiting the long-awaited price of USD 20,000 before the end of the year, though chances are getting slimmer of strong price-action that creates a strong rally up. Today, major technicals are about to confirm a potential end of a strong uptrend. What are those technicals and why everything might change within hours?
Bitcoin Price Forecast – Technicals showing the END of a strong uptrend
If we were to summarize the last two months for Bitcoin, it would be done the following:
- November 2020: Massive price increase from USD 13,700 to the all-time high of USD 19,835
- December 2020: Price adjustment from the all-time high back to previous strong support levels of USD 17,650
There isn’t anything offsetting by the above price-actions, talking about “breathers” here at Cryptoticker was always a highly discussed topic. In fact, plotting the Fibonacci Retracement on the current BTC price chart in figure 1, we can clearly see a natural breather that would take not only hours but even days.
This above Fibonacci retracement is considered a very powerful technical standpoint, as its coordinates (specifically the 50% retracement level) coincides exactly with the previously plotted support level of USD 16,500.
Two scenarios currently come to play:
- The price reaches the 38.2% level and rebounds back, creating a sideways trend since the beginning of December 2020
- The price fails to rebound and drops further below the USD 17,000 psychological price
In fact, the price officially for the second day dips below the uptrend channel (figure 2).
