Bitcoin’s bounce from lows of $7,714.70 on September 30th gave bulls a solid reason to be optimistic.
At that point, the number one cryptocurrency shed over 44% of its value from the 2019 top of $13,880. To some traders, this price action is not out of the ordinary. More importantly, they expect bitcoin to resume its uptrend soon.
Unfortunately, the bounce was short-lived and bitcoin resumed its bearish trend. While this move caught many retail investors off guard, one experienced analyst anticipated the move. In fact, the full-time trader believes that there’s more blood to come.
The dominant cryptocurrency became bearish after it broke down from a large descending triangle on Sept. 24. While it did bounce less than a week later, bitcoin failed to take out resistance of $8,500. That’s a bearish signal to technical analyst TraderSZ.
The full-time trader shared a chart with CCN and said,
That’s my thoughts…I believe we [are] head[ed] lower.
Looking at the analyst’s chart, he predicted that bitcoin will dive below $8,200 and then convert the support into resistance. That call has actually taken place. Bitcoin is currently trading close to $8,000 and falling rapidly despite oversold conditions.
Based on the chart, we might be seeing the prelude to the dive to $7,400.
It is not all gloom and doom for the king of cryptocurrencies. We spoke to Todd Butterfield, the owner of the Wyckoff Stock Market Institute. He believes that bitcoin is creating a higher low setup. He said,
I am still of the opinion that Bitcoin is making a MAJOR low here and will begin a move to all-time highs very soon.
When asked about the chances of the cryptocurrency to dump to $7,400, the top Wyckoff expert replied,
My current preferred count is that we rally from here. Worse case I think we have quick dunk to $7,400 then straight up.
