Bitcoin Price Analysis: BTC $1,000 Daily Impressive Recover, But Still In The Danger Zone

On our recent Bitcoin price analysis, we mentioned that Bitcoin is breaking down the mid-term ascending supporting trend-line at around $11,200.

Since the breakdown, we saw Bitcoin plunging another $1400 on the daily to reach the significant support at $9,800. This was mentioned here as a possible support area since the level contains the daily chart’s 50-days moving average line (marked in purple on the following chart). As can be seen, this is also the lower ascending trend-line marked, which was started forming somewhere at the end of April of this year.

Looking at the daily, we saw a beautiful reversal candle, followed by a decent amount of volume. However, Bitcoin is still in the danger zone.

As can be seen on the macro-level analysis, Bitcoin had retested the seven-year-old ascending trendline (log chart) but from below, now as resistance.

Another thing to note is the RSI, which is producing lower highs on the daily chart. If the momentum indicator doesn’t go back bullish, at least above the 52-53 level, this can forecast some short-term bearish action for Bitcoin.

Some optimism is that the recent correction found support at $9,800, which on the daily level is higher than the prior low at $9600 (from July 2nd).
