Bitcoin Eyes $6K After Key Resistance Fails to Hold

Bitcoin (BTC) risks descending to $6,000 in a subsequent 24 hours, though there is singular room for a dump next that level, a technical studies indicate.

BTC’s shelter from a weekly high of $7,509 to $6,600 not usually outlines a disaster on a bulls’ partial to reason prices above a pivotal insurgency of $7,240 (March 8 low), though also signals delay of a bearish “lower” highs settlement (marked by palm signs) as seen on a draft below.

As of writing, a cryptocurrency is changing hands during $6,565 on Bitfinex – down 3.9 percent from Thursday’s tighten (as per UTC) of $6,769.

Daily chart

The third reduce high (i.e. dump from $7,509 to $6,600) indicates a visual convene has ended. However, usually an acceptance underneath $6,425 (April 1 low) would settle a third reduce low and open a doors for a dump to $6,000 (February low).

That said, a hourly draft and linear-scaled daily draft next do prove a probability of a dump next a pivotal support.

Hourly chart

The downside mangle of a bearish pennant, a bearish delay pattern, indicates a sell-off from $7,509 has resumed and prices could dump to $6,355 (target as per a totalled tallness method, i.e. stick tallness subtracted from relapse price).

Interestingly, a downside, as suggested by a bearish streamer breakdown, is really nearby to a descending channel support seen around $5,365 on a daily chart.

Additionally, BTC seems to have found acceptance next a pivotal descending trendline support.

Daily draft (linear scale)

BTC is trade good next a rising trendline (drawn from a Jul low and Sep low), that is bad news for a bulls. The trendline acted as clever support progressing this week. Also, a sell-off seen in Feb had run out of steam nearby a trendline support.

Clearly, a charts are aligned for a bearish move. However, a dump next $6,000 will expected pull a daily relations strength index (RSI) next 30.00 (oversold territory) and could extent a sell-off. Note that a RSI now stands during 32.80.


BTC looks set to transparent a evident support during $6,425 and dump towards $6,000 (February low).

A serve dump towards $5,400-$5,300 can't be ruled out, though will expected be short-lived, as a RSI will expected uncover oversold conditions by then.

Bearish cancellation scenario: On a aloft side, a transparent mangle above $6,938 (previous day’s high), would supplement faith to prior day’s doji candle and boost a contingency of a pierce aloft to a falling-channel resistance, now seen around $7,580.
