Bitcoin Price Technical Analysis
Mass Psychology Analysis still reflects that a total disinterest phase is in effect, sending the bitcoin price action deeper into the disbelief phase. Additionally, a basic evaluation of support and resistance points the trend to the downside, with the possibility of a reversion increasing the closer prices get to $2,800 USD.
Confirming the conclusions drawn from support/resistance evaluation, a look at intermediate support shows the psychological support at $3,000 continually weakening as time goes by.
Applying Fibonacci Retracement Numbers to the last downward movement from $8,000 to $3,000, the charts keep going sideways. This pattern recognizes a resistance near $4,100 and an imaginary support at $3,000 based only on Round Numbers Theory.
Unfortunately, the real support remains at $2,500. However, if a delayed bearish swing confirms, the bitcoin price could bounce around $2,800, starting a new mid-term bullish cycle.
Japanese Candlestick Analysis shows that Demand´s Soldiers are not capable of driving the action beyond $4,100. However, Offer´s Crows are getting stronger as the lateral market continues and should break the trend.
That break would transfer the action to a lower level, from where new players would enter the market. Bollinger Bands show bearish signs at $3,900, but a 1000-point bearish swing and back to the current level could allow bullish reinforcements to overcome the $4,100 resistance.
