11:19THIS “DEATH CROSS” SUGGESTS BITCOIN COULD SEE IMMENSE TURBULENCE
Bitcoin’s recent break below $19,000 was a grim technical development, as it is what led the cryptocurrency to decline as low as $17,600 before it was able to find some strong support.
Whether or not this support will hold strong in the mid-term should depend largely, if not entirely, on the cryptocurrency’s reaction to $18,000. It is rapidly moving to test this level, but it may face a rejection here.
One analyst is now noting that the cryptocurrency’s cloud formation is also beginning to post what is referred to as a “death cross.” This could mean downside is inbound.
BITCOIN TRIES TO RECLAIM $18,000 AS BULLS SHOW SIGNS OF LIFE
Ever since Bitcoin first broke below $19,000, it has been slowly inching lower as buyers struggle to take control of its price action.
At the time of writing, the cryptocurrency is trading down just under 2% at its current price of $17,980. This is around the price it has been trading throughout the past 12 hours.
Whether it can gain a firm and lasting foothold above $18,000 should provide some serious insights into where it will trend next.
BTC’S CLOUD FORMATION IS BEGINNING TO FORM A “DEATH CROSS”
One sign of turbulence in the near-term is a forming death cross on the cryptocurrency’s cloud formation.
This has led one analyst to claim that some immense volatility could be imminent in the days and weeks ahead.
