BTC/USD technical outlook
The RSI indicator on the daily chart edged slightly lower below 50, suggesting that the pair is struggling to gather enough bullish momentum to stage a convincing rebound. Resistances for Bitcoin could be seen at $9,200 (20-day SMA/Saturday high) ahead of $9,400 (50-day SMA) and $9,780 (Jun. 22 high).On the downside, a daily close below $9,000/$8,750 region (Jul. 16 low/100-day SMA/Jul. 5 low/Fibonacci 23.6% retracement of March-June rally) could ramp up the bearish pressure and cause the pair to extend its slide to $8,500 (200-day SMA). Additionally, there is a descending triangle, a bearish continuation pattern, that seems to have formed on the daily chart. It looks like the price will reach the end of that formation toward the end of the month.
