Bitcoin Price Technical Analysis

Long-Term Analysis

According to Elliott Wave Theory, quotes should attempt to bounce upwards to the former support at $1100. From there, a “B phase” will occur, testing the last support at $850. If that support breaks, the bitcoin price will likely stabilize somewhere around $600.

Other bearish patterns seem to be active, such as a big head-and-shoulders formation that ended the bubble to allow the current downward movement. If this pattern tests the main support at $600 and fails to break it, the price will start another upward movement and return to the $850 level.

Mid-Term Analysis

According to indicators, the bitcoin price can’t hold at $850 for long. However, $850 can be analyzed as an upper level support and resistance in the event of a bounce-back from $600.

In anticipation of a possible plunge, a bear flag formation has emerged. With a technical objective at $700, the completion of that formation could act as a trigger for the projected drop to $600.

Short-Term Analysis

Currently, a theoretical support exists at $850. However, those supports are weak and depend on fluid volume and fundamental factors.

At the technical level, the short-term trading channel remains bearish with an $800 support level. $600 looks like the lower bound of the short-term trading channel. If reached, that $600 threshold will trigger a rebound to $850, solidifying overall bullish positions and bringing in new players from the sidelines who will ultimately push the price higher.
