Bitcoin’s price closed its daily candle at its lowest level since December 16th, 2020 on Monday. When traders settled up to close Monday’s session BTC’s price was down nearly 16% and -$4,183.
Monday’s daily session also saw the highest daily volume on BTC since May 19th, 2021.
Today we’re leading off our analyses with the BTC/USD 1D chart below from CryptoPatel. BTC’s price has clearly broken down from support at the $29k level and the measured move on BTC from the last breakdown was 29%. A move that resembles the prior breakdown could send BTC’s price back down to the 2017 bull market top just under the $20k level.
The primary target for bearish traders of the BTC market is obviously the $20k level and then the former ATH. Conversely, bullish traders seek to reverse course and retest the $29k level which was strong support for bulls for nearly a month.
