To better assess future price fluctuations, we incorporate technical indicators into the analysis. We begin with volume
Volume is a tool used by traders which measures the amount of an asset trading in a given period of time. Combined with breakouts and breakdowns it can be used to confirm the validity of a move.
Volume is shown alongside price below:
Bitcoin Breakdown On Apr 3, the price reached a high of $5345. A rapid downward move began which took it to a low of $4800 in a span of three hours. The breakdown occurred at a significant volume—more than twice the average hourly volume. Using this indicator, we can conclude that the breakout was legitimate and the price is likely to create new resistance and support areas below the channel.

Reversal Areas

Support areas are created when the price revisits the same level several times. They can be used to find likely areas of reversal if a breakdown occurs.
Bitcoin Support Areas The closest support area is found near $4800, followed by the support area near $4700. It is likely that the price will fall to at least one of these areas before it creates a different trading structure. We also believe it is possible that BTC/USD rises to touch the support line of the channel before falling.
