The near-term bearish trend, formed at late June 2019’s swing hi $13,764.0, remained firmly intact, reaffirmed by the March swing lo $4,000.

For the bulls, Bitcoin would need to break out from $10,000 levels to form a near-term bullish trend.

The Rest of the Pack

Bitcoin Cash ABC and Bitcoin Cash SV slid by 1.40% and by 1.17% respectively to buck the trend.

BTC/USD 13/05/20 Daily Chart

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to break back through to $8,900 levels to bring the first major resistance level at $9,010.80 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from Tuesday’s high $8,968.0.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely pin Bitcoin back on the day.

In the event of rebound, the second major resistance level at $9,210.20 would likely limit any upside on the day.

Failure to break back through to $8,900 levels would likely see Bitcoin fall back into the red.

A fall through to sub-$8,770 levels would bring the first major support level at $8,569.20 into play.

In the event of another extended sell-off, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$8,000 levels. The second major support level at $8,327.0 should limit any downside.
