Bears have the advantage as Bitcoin’s $9,000 support broken

Bitcoin has consistently hovered above $9,200 as BTC shows signs of weakness. The bottom line is that after the last bearish impulse of June 25, Bitcoin has been consolidating between $9,000 and $9,500.

Buyers have tested the $9,500 resistance to break into the previous highs. The bulls were overwhelmed as prices dropped into the price range. The coin is weakened as it can hardly push above $9,200. On the other hand, the Bears have the advantage as the $9,000 support was broken on three occasions but price corrected upward. 

Besides, the $9,000 and $9,200 support has been holding consistently. The major advantage of Bitcoin upside range trading is that the lower region of $9,000 has been holding. Nonetheless, if buyers push BTC above $9,500, the price movement will accelerate. There is also the possibility of a breakout if the current consolidation continues to hold. Any breakout will attempt to breach the $10,000 resistance. Once the $10,500 resistance is broken, a rally $11,500 is likely.
