Bitcoin loses more ground after failing to break the resistance at $10,400

Regrettably, Bitcoin has lost more ground after failing to break the resistance at $10,400. The bulls are battling to defend the $9,800 as the support cracks. On February 11, the bulls defended the $9,800 support and price rebounded to reach the overhead resistance. At the moment, the price has failed to rebound at the low of $9,800; rather the price seems to fluctuate and may resume selling.

It is like the price action of October 2019 is going to take the shape of the current price action. In October 2019, BTC has a price rally and the price spike reached above $10,000. The bulls could not sustain the upward movement as the price fell and consolidated below the $10,000 resistance. After consolidation, the market dropped to a low of $7,000. Today, the price action may not be different as BTC is yet to trade or rally above $10,000 since August 2019.
