Waning Demand for Bitcoin Spells Trouble for Where it Goes Next
- Bitcoin saw a slight decline overnight that caused it to invalidate some of the strength that was previously guiding it towards $10,000
- It now appears that the crypto is positioned to see further downside as its technical outlook degrades
- Analysts are pointing to waning demand and growing supply as reasons why the benchmark crypto could soon decline lower
- It is important to note that this decline could lead BTC as low as the $7,000 region in the days and weeks ahead
Bitcoin has seen some immense turbulence in recent times, struggling to garner enough momentum to shatter the resistance that exists around $10,000.
Although the cryptocurrency has tested this region on multiple occasions throughout the past several weeks, each one has been fleeting and followed by intense downside.
Analysts are now offering somewhat cautious outlooks for the cryptocurrency, noting that it is a strong possibility that the crypto sees a notable decline in the days ahead.
One trader is pointing to weakening demand and a growing supply zone just above BTC’s current price level as reasons why he anticipates downside.
Bitcoin Posts Bearish Decline as Analysts Eye Major Downside
At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading down marginally at its current price of $9,650.
Although this is the price at which the cryptocurrency was trading at just a day ago, yesterday it did attempt to post a breakout upswing that ultimately let it to highs of $9,900 before it faced a swift rejection that sent it spiraling lower.
This marks the latest in a string of rejections around this level that have been seen over the past few weeks.
Analysts do believe that the crypto’s decisive inability to gain a foothold within the five-figure price region means that further losses are imminent.
One such trader recently offered a downside target of $7,800, explaining that there is significant demand in this region that would warrant opening a long position when it is reached.
“BTC 1D TF- Two Swing Ideas- Short to $7.7k-$7.8k, a lot of demand for Bitcoin at this level. Long the bounce after,” he explained while pointing to the chart seen below.
This Wyckoff Pattern Spells Trouble for BTC
The chart seen below shows this pattern, and he also notes that the “clear presence of greater supply than demand” spells trouble for where the benchmark cryptocurrency goes next.
“BTC Wyckoff Update: Clear presence of greater supply than demand (OBV too, but not shown). One caveat: volume bars + OBV can be misleading due to fragmented nature of exchanges. For accuracy, look at multiple exchanges,” he said while pointing to the chart seen below.
