Bitcoin Technical Analysis

The price of the coin continues in a range-bound zone. The strong bearish pressure within ensures that the Bitcoin has made a new low of $6,524 on 23rd of October, as against the low of $6,535 on 22nd of October at the support zone.

The price of Bitcoin then reversed within the range with the bullish formation at $6,540. Before the trading session ended the price of Bitcoin was up at $6,580 in the resistance zone. However, temporary declines against further upward price movement occurred at the 50 Exponential Moving Averages.

The 100 SMA line is below the long term 200 SMA line which signals that the path of least resistance is towards the downward direction. In other words, the bearish breakout is more likely to gain traction than to reverse.

If the price of the coin fails to hold the $6,500 support than a downward rally towards the 11th October lows of $6,220 might be seen. Also, even more losses could be expected below this point.
