In the middle of the storm, Bitcoin dropped below $28k in the past hour, looking for support to hold pressure. It may suffer more losses in the hands of the bears. But if solid support is located, a major recovery will start in no time.
Bitcoin retested the $30k level as resistance in the past week but unfortunately rejected the level with a double-top pattern on the lower time frame.
It started to show signs of weakness yesterday and plunged to around $29k before slipping to $28.5k earlier today. It stayed around that price level during the New York session and closed the price at $28.1k.
Just an hour ago, the price dropped off the $28k after a small consolidation around the mentioned New York closing price. The daily engulfing candle formation is also a strong indication of big drops.
However, volatility may slow down a bit as the price nears a crucial support level at $27k – capable of releasing a massive sell-off at the lower boundary of the broadening wedge pattern once the price flips it. A strong push from this same level could as well fuel a fresh increase with a double-bottom pattern.
However, things might get uglier than this in the next couple of days as Bitcoin targets February’s high (as support) in the ongoing sell-off. The major price target to watch out for in this healthy correction is the March breakout level of $23k.
Bitcoin’s Key Levels To Watch
In the meantime, the close support levels to pay attention to are $27k and $26.6k. The $25.2k support level is expected to provide a small recovery. If a recovery fail, the price may extend bearishness to $24k before rising back.
A strong push above $28k could lure buyers back as the $28.8k resistance level stands for a retest, slightly above the resistance line. While the $30k resistance remains a crucial level for the bulls, the $30.7k and $31.5k levels would be their next targets for
