Bitcoin Price: Trends and Highlights for September 10
- BTC/USD is trading inside a short-term descending wedge.
- There is support between $10,000-$10,100.
- Daily moving averages have made a bearish cross.
- BTC has created a bearish shooting star.
A look at the hourly time-frame shows that the BTC price is likely trading inside a descending wedge.
The support line has only been touched twice, so it is possible that the price follows a slightly different line.
The descending wedge is considered a bullish pattern, making a Bitcoin price breakout more likely.
Looking at a longer-term time-frame, we can see two minor support areas, one at $10,100 and the other at $10,000.
Since the descending wedge is considered a bullish pattern, a drop towards the second, validating the support line followed by a breakout could be likely.
Furthermore, connecting the lows beginning on August 29, the low discussed in the introduction, gives us an ascending support line that is currently right below our support areas.
This further increases the significance of the $10,000 support and makes it a likely place for the initiation of a reversal.
