BTCUSD Forecast for BTC
Bitcoin sets a new ATH on all crypto platforms, and starts a bearish campaign in the last weeks of January. Are we seeing the start of a total change in trend polarity from bullish to bearish, or is this simply a price correction?
Read on as we uncover the chart patterns and news events driving the BTCUSD exchange rates.
BTCUSD Technical Analysis
The Bitcoin exchange rate corrects by about -27% from its all-time high and trades close to the monthly open price in January.
Analysts speculate on the recent price decline being an effect of profit-taking by miners and investors.
An accumulation of sell orders is revealed after last week’s closing price, indicating the likelihood of a price slump below the MA10 and towards the 24.5K area.
A bearish price close below the 28850USD price level from last week will signal a confirmation to jump in on the bullish train.
On 21 January ’21, the bears forced a hidden bullish divergence break, highlighting the Bitcoin bulls’ further weakness.
Regular bearish divergence setups on 08 January ’21 already showed that BTC whales and miners might start moving out their BTC profits.
We may see a continuation of the up move if the BTC/USD exchange rate soars above the bullish divergence trend line.
We anticipate a further price slump below the 30K mark before considering going all-in towards the upside.
Meanwhile, following a dollar-cost average lot allocation, traders can consider scaling in right away on the spot market.
Although the general BTC market sentiment points to the upside, intraday traders may consider taking quick short-sell entries with tight stop loss, as the BTC price could still do a sharp plunge below the MA-10 on the weekly-TF.
