However, BTC has bounced back since, creating a doji candlestick above the $47,800 support area. BTC hasn’t closed below this level since March. This candlestick also had a bullish close. 

Technical indicators are neutral. While the Stochastic oscillator has made a bullish cross, the RSI has crossed below 50.

In addition, the MACD has crossed into negative territory for the first time since October 2020 (red arrows).

Short-term movement

The two-hour chart shows that BTC was rejected by the $51,125 resistance area, which is the 0.382 Fib retracement resistance level. 

Despite the rejection, technical indicators are turning bullish. The MACD has given a bullish reversal signal while the RSI has generated a bullish divergence and has crossed above the 30-line.

The next resistance area is found at $52,725, created by the 0.5 Fib retracement level.

BTC wave count

The wave count indicates that BTC is in the C wave of an A-B-C corrective structure. 

A target of $41,560 would give waves A:C a 1:1 ratio. In addition, it would take the price to the support line of the descending channel.

The sub-wave count is shown in red. It suggests that the price is in sub-wave four, which has developed into a symmetrical triangle. A breakdown from this pattern would likely confirm that the price is heading towards the support line of the channel. 

On the other hand, an increase above the sub-wave 1 low of $53,500 (red line) would invalidate this possibility.

Conclusion

Despite being at support, BTC has not shown any bullish reversal signs. Bitcoin could likely fall to $41,560 before resuming its upward movement.
