Bitcoin Price Prediction: BTC/USD clasps to consolidation above $9,200 – Confluence Detector


  • Bitcoin price embraces consolidation between $9,200 support and the key resistance zone at $9,400.
  • BTC/USD is still in grave danger of falling back to $9,000 especially if the short term trendline caves in.

Bitcoin lethargic trading has been very dominant since the week started. Following recovery from the drop to $8,726 in the last week of June, BTC/USD has not been able to trade above $9,400. Besides, sustaining the price above $9,300 has been an uphill task. For instance, at the time of writing, Bitcoin is in retreat towards $9,250. If the declines continue under the short term ascending trendline, we can expect Bitcoin to spiral below $9,200 and even retest $9,000.

For now, the biggest mission for the bulls is to reclaim the position above $9,300 and sustain the gains towards $9,400. Unfortunately, bears seem to be carrying the day especially with the RSI falling towards the midline. The MACD hit a snag at 68 after recovery from -25. However, the indicator has slowed down the downtrend, holding above the mean line (0.00). Consolidation is likely to continue as long as the MACD holds in the positive zone.
