Technical Analysis for BTCUSD for 17th October 2022
Bitcoin Losing Steam, Anchored at Q3 2022 Support at $18.5k
Past Performance of BTC
Bitcoin Technical Analysis
Presently, BTC bulls have a chance. From the daily chart, prices are in range inside the October 13 bull bar, a net positive for buyers. The sharp reversal of prices from below Q3 lows with increasing trading volumes may point to the early stages of recovery and the end of the 11-month bear run. This preview, nonetheless, is valid if prices are above $18.5k and, preferably, $20.5k in the short term, breaking away from the current consolidation. If not, losses below last week's lows at $18.2k may see Bitcoin disintegrate, falling to register new 2022 lows.
What to Expect from BTC
BTC is within a bear formation, and traders are overly apprehensive. Unless clear breakouts signal the end of the bear run or the continuation of Q3 2022 bears, trades can stay on the sidelines. Gains (losses) above $20.5k ($18k) would mean the sideways movement of the better part of Q3 2022 was accumulation (distribution).
Resistance level to watch: $20.5k
Support level to watch: $18.5k
