Within the wake of the current crash in Bitcoin’s value, analysts have been rife with hypothesis concerning the market’s subsequent steps. The BTC value briefly dipped to a low of $24,800 final week, and with the Bitcoin concern and greed index plunging from impartial to 38 (indicating concern), market sentiment is palpable. Famend analyst Rekt Capital weighed in on the scenario, providing a radical technical breakdown.
“BTC is formally on the base of the double high. The double high has accomplished,” states Rekt Capital. Highlighting the market’s present vulnerability, the analyst continues, “Draw back wicking beneath ~$26,000 like in mid-June will happen. However a Weekly Shut beneath ~$260,00 is what would validate the double high and begin breakdown continuation.”
Although the double high’s completion has ratcheted up bearish sentiment, there’s no definitive breakdown but. “BTC has accomplished the double high however nonetheless no breakdown affirmation as BTC holds ~$26k assist,” Rekt Capital provides. The situation turns into much more intriguing as “vendor quantity has elevated in current days.” The evaluation reveals that the “vendor quantity would want to extend by about +30%” to match the sell-side quantity Bitcoin noticed throughout earlier value reversals.
Drawing consideration to Bitcoin’s quantity dynamics, Rekt Capital elucidates, “BTC fashioned its larger excessive at ~$31,000 on inclining quantity. However value fashioned the second half of its double high on declining quantity.” Though there was a spike in promoting quantity through the current crash, it stays removed from the vendor exhaustion quantity ranges seen throughout earlier BTC reversals. Because the analyst starkly places it, the present “vendor quantity would want to in all probability double” to reflect the degrees that triggered value turnarounds in March and June.
Remarkably, yesterday’s weekly shut noticed Bitcoin failing to retain assist above key bull market shifting averages, together with the 21-week EMA, 50-week EMA, and 200-week MA. “All of those bullish momentum indicators had been confirmed as misplaced assist with the weekly shut yesterday,” the evaluation factors out.
How Low Will Bitcoin Value Drop?

The analyst elucidates that “if we see a weekly shut beneath $26,000, adopted by a rejection from $26,000, then we in all probability see a confirmed breakdown from this double high.”
Nevertheless, each bearish be aware comes with a caveat. Rekt Capital provides, “It’s very easy to get caught up in bearish euphoria… So it’s actually essential to not get caught in these draw back wicks (beneath $26,000).” And for these searching for potential bullish situations, the analyst has one in thoughts: “Even when we break down from this double high… one of many essential areas is that this inverse head and shoulders formation that we noticed play out earlier this 12 months.” A retest of this sample’s neckline, roughly round $24,000, may spell bullish prospects for the premier cryptocurrency.
Historic knowledge additionally lends a hand in making sense of Bitcoin’s trajectory. “A drawdown of 18% to $24,000 can be completely regular for an August month,” the analyst shares, reminding traders that Bitcoin has usually underperformed in August.
