BTC/USD Analysis: Test of an Important Breakout Amid Scary News


The cryptocurrency market is shaken by claims from the SEC. The lawsuits by the US financial regulator against the world's largest cryptocurrency exchange Binance and its head Changpeng Zhao have added to the lawsuits against the Coinbase exchange, whose shares are traded on Nasdaq. In response, Coinbase representatives said that the exchange has no plans to ban the trading of crypto assets that the SEC considers securities, and does not plan to phase out staking services.

Cryptocurrency market participants anxiously monitor incoming news:
→ Hearings are scheduled for June 14 on the SEC request to freeze Binance.US assets.
→ A division of Binance.US has drastically reduced the number of cryptocurrency pairs available for trading.
→ Coinbase does not see the risk of losing customers or banking partners; the exchange has more than $5 billion on its balance sheet, available to maintain operations and pay legal fees.

Meanwhile, an important breakout test took place on the BTC/USD chart. The price of BTC/USD bounced several times (in late May and early June) from the lower border of the trend channel (1), which has been in effect since the beginning of 2023. But after the news about the lawsuits from the SEC against Binance, it had a bearish breakdown, and yesterday its test was formed on the chart – the price of BTC/USD turned down from the breakdown zone above USD 27k. The bearish breakout test suggests that the price of BTC/USD may continue to decline — consider a scenario in which it, moving within the red descending channel in the face of negative news, can reach an important psychological level of USD 27k.
