Bulls failed to push Bitcoin price above the minor resistance

Yesterday, the bulls failed to push the price above the minor resistance of $10,200. The resulting effect on Bitcoin was another downward move. Just 48 hours ago, BTC survived an earlier downward move where it failed to break above $10,400 overhead resistance. The bears succeeded in breaching the support levels of $10,200 and $9,800 but were stopped at $9,600.

Immediately, the upward move resumed but found penetration difficult at $10,200 which has earlier been broken. Nonetheless, if $10,200 resistance persists, Bitcoin may resume a sideways move between $9,600 and $10,200. BTC is currently falling and if the support at $9,600 is breached, it will drop to the low of $9,200. The selling pressure may continue to the low of $8,400 if the bulls fail to defend $9,200 support.

What Is the Next Direction for BTC/USD?

Yesterday, the downward movement of Bitcoin was terminated at a low of $9,600. Today the upward move is terminated at a high of $10,400. It is anticipated that if these levels are well defended, Bitcoin will be compelled to a sideways move between $9,600 and $10,200. The bears will be favored if the low of $9,600 is breached. The bulls will be in a better position if $10,200 is broken above.
