On the 8th of November, Bitcoin dropped below $9,000. On the same day, 1.7 MM shorts and 57 Million longs were liquidated on BitMEX. Furthermore, on the 23rd of October, more than 200MM shorts were liquidated on BitMEX. That day Bitcoin price plummeted by 9% reaching $7,546.

Bitcoin is looking south after continuous losses and multiple rejections at key price resistance. Furthermore, the Bitcoin has also failed to cross the 3.5-month trendline sloping downwards from the 2019 high of $13,880.

It is likely that Bitcoin price further dips to $7,000 range. If the bulls manage to take control it is likely that Bitcoin will break the $9000 range. Bitcoin price has major support levels at $8,400 and $8000.

While leading crypto moguls have time and gain predicted that Bitcoin price will be in millions. The price charts suggest else wise. It will be interesting to note if the Bitcoin price manages to cross $10,000 before the end of the year. In the present case scenario, Bitcoin price is expected to trade range-bound, until a major event manages to shake its price.
