BTC/USD Analysis: Bearish Arguments Become More Convincing


On March 18, we wrote about the activation of bears near the USD 70,000 level and the likelihood of consolidation forming near this psychological mark.

On March 25, we wrote that anxiety remains in the Bitcoin market.

Technical analysis of the BTC/USD chart with new data on the behavior of Bitcoin prices today relative to the previously designated levels and lines shows that bearish arguments are becoming more convincing:

→ the median line of the ascending channel acted as resistance (shown by the first arrow);
→ the price has formed a consolidation zone (shown in green) with a subsequent bearish exit from it;
→ after a bearish breakdown of the lower border of the ascending channel, it showed signs of resistance (shown by the second arrow);
→ the increase in B→C is about 50% of the decrease in A→B, which corresponds to the proportion of the normal intermediate recovery within the dominant bearish trend.

Attempts to reach the level of USD 70k for Bitcoin in April were unsuccessful. The inability of the cryptocurrency price to demonstrate bullish dynamics is alarming due to the approaching halving, which is considered a positive factor influencing the price of Bitcoin.

It is possible that further developments will provide more turning points for building a downward channel.
