BTC Failed to Break $10,000 – How to Hedge Loss in Spot Trade?
Bitcoin’s 3rd halving was expected to be a bullish event for BTC investors. However, Bitcoin tried 4 times to break above the strong resistance of $10,000, but it failed. Since May 20, the price of BTC has declined nearly 10%, and reached the lowest of $8,800 on May 21, shifting traders’ focus from breaking the $10 resistance to now holding above the key support of $9,200.
At the press of time, Bitcoin price continues to retest the support at $9,200. And the steady downtrend momentum may eventually cause the price decline below the bullish pennant. Besides, the bearish move in the past 2 days have become intense as well.
Most Indicators Point to a Downside Correction
As shown in the daily chart below, we can notice that Bitcoin is still above 200-day moving average which is located near $8,000. And the price moves near the lower trendline in the ascending channel, which indicates that the power of bull is weakening. If Bitcoin drops below $9,000 again, a revisit to $8,500 – $8,000 may occur.
In addition, Bitcoin barely saw a minor pullback when it surged from $7,700 to $10,000. But, the bull power didn’t maintain and BTC failed to stand above $10,000, which also leave BTC vulnerable to a sizable decline.
