Bitcoin’s price traded in red figures on Wednesday and closed -$130.6 for its daily candle.
The BTC/USD 4hr chart below from gautuwuu shows that BTC’s price is trading within a descending triangle, at the the time of writing.
The most integral fibonacci level for BTC bulls to control on this timescale in the interim is 0.5 [$49,735] which is currently acting as support. Overhead targets for bullish traders are 0.382 [$51,604] and 0.236 [$53,917].
Bearish traders conversely are seeking to break the 0.5 fib level [$49,735], then proceed to accomplish a 4hr and then daily close below that level to flip it from support for bulls to resistance. Below the 0.5 fib bears are aiming for 0.618 [$47,866] with a third target of 0.786 [$45,204].
The Fear and Greed Index is 29 and +1 point from yesterday’s reading of 28 Fear.
