The volumes were declining in a channel, with the rising price, which implies decreasing participation by the buyers. When the market is rising while volume is declining, big money is not the one buying, more likely slowly exiting positions.

As per the analysis, the expected downside target could be around $19,500. To find targets for the Flag pattern, the Fibonacci extension indicator is used, which gives us more than 70% accurate targets. 

As shown in the chart, the price has been in a downtrend for so long, making lower lows and lower highs. The price earlier gave a bearish impulse move from $32,375 to $17,650, after that for more than three months, the price takes a pullback to 50% Fibonacci retracement and started to fall after that from its recent highs of $25,000, which also acts as a psychological level.

Further, the Bitcoin price broke the 50-day exponential moving average & is sustaining below that level. If the price breaks the recent low ($20,780), then we can expect a sharp fall in the short term.

The nearest support is $20,780, whereas the most immediate resistance is found near $22,380. There is a higher probability of the downside break.

On the other hand, a break above the $21,500 level could invalidate the bearish outlook. If that occurs, the first upside target could be $22,000 followed by $22,700.


BTC is bearish on all time frames. Below $20,780 closing on the hourly time frame, we can put a trade on the sell side.
