On a weekly scale, traders Josh Rager and Escobar suggested that a retest of the 21 EMA is very likely. The 21-EMA on weekly is currently at $9,208. Rager also tweeted,

Bitcoin price breaks through current support area on the daily and through the 20MA

If buyers don’t step in the next couple days, we’ll see Bitcoin retest the previous support in the low $9ks. A break from there likely leads to $8k

The volume of trading has also been significantly low in the past few days.

However, as Bitcoin is testing the 20 MA with a 50% probability of a break-out, Rager is leaning bullish, looking for a break above $12k.

Moreover, on the daily Bitcoin closed below 2% lower than the previous days. According to Sawcruhteez, it sets up for a bearish trend on the sequential. The 50 EMA at $10,315 is currently acting as resistance to Bitcoin in the short term. He also cited the death cross between short term medium term moving averages also indicate a downward movement.

Furthermore, the fear of the break below the descending triangle is growing significantly. Mati Greenspan, the Senior Market Analyst at eToro, also reiterated similar concerns of a break. His bearish targets are somewhere around $7,500-$7,700.

Nevertheless, the increasing hash rate and various other market sentiments are pointing towards an upside. B. Biddles shared a rare instance of a descending triangle breakout. While a break-out in the negative direction occurred, it only lasted for three days. Hence, there was no bearish trend per se. He tweeted,
