Bitcoin Tech Analysis – Recap and Mid-Morning Review – 21/08/19The Bitcoin bears take another bite through the early morning. A move back through to $10,400 levels would signal a rebound…
Bitcoin saw red on Tuesday, falling by 1.33%. Partially reversing Monday’s 5.9% rally, Bitcoin closed out the day at $10,792.1.
A spillover from a late Monday rally led to an early morning intraday high $10,993 before Bitcoin hit reverse.
Selling pressure at $11,000 left Bitcoin short of the first major resistance level at $11,174.67.
The reversal through the morning saw Bitcoin fall to an early afternoon intraday low $10,584.
Bitcoin managed to hold above the first major support level at $10,490.67 to bounce back to $10,800 levels late on.
Unable to move back into positive territory, Bitcoin slipped back to $10,700 levels in the final hour.
The extended bullish trend, formed at 15th December’s swing lo $3,215.2, remained firmly intact. In spite of a pullback from a June swing hi $13,764, Bitcoin continued to steer well clear of the 60.2% FIB of $7,245.
Of greater significance was a rebound through the 38.2% FIB of $9,734 to bring the 23.6% FIB of $11,275 back in to play.
At the time of writing, Bitcoin was down by 5.81% to $10,165. A particularly bearish morning saw Bitcoin tumble from a start of a day high $10,825 to a mid-morning low $10,080.
Falling well short of the first major resistance level at $10,995.4, Bitcoin slid through the first major resistance level at $10,586.40 and second major resistance level at $10,380.7.
For the Day Ahead
A move back through the second major support level at $10,380.7 to $10,400 levels would signal a rebound.
Bitcoin would need the support of the broader market, however, to break back through to $10,300 levels.
Barring broad-based crypto rebound, Bitcoin would likely fail to move back through the first major support level at $10,586.4.
Failure to move back through the second major support level at $10,380.70 could see Bitcoin take another hit.
A fall back through the morning low $10,080 would bring the sub-$10,000 levels and the third major support level at $9,971.7 into play.
We would expect Bitcoin to steer clear of the 38.2% FIB of $9,734, however, in the event of an extended sell-off.
