The technical picture remains in an unhealthy condition. For instance, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) is stuck under the average at 50. Although not moving towards 30 at the moment, the RSI has been forming a lower high pattern. At the same time, Bitcoin is not oversold in the short-term. This means that there is more room for the bears to explore.

Consequently, the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) has finally crossed into the negative region. A bearish cross also suggests that bearish pressure is present. However, traders need to be on the lookout for a return above the mean line (0.0). This, coupled with an expanding bullish volume could signal a reversal above $9,200.

Meanwhile, Bitcoin is looking towards a falling triangle breakout. If the price can trade above the trendline resistance, BTC/USD will get a boost towards the short-term supply zone at $9,600 and $10,000 respectively.
