Skew data shows the decrease to $ 9,256, with $ 28 million settled in large BitMEX positions. As explained in a recent analysis, After rising more than 20% since May 11, Bitcoin’s price was expected to retest past resistance levels to see if it actually broke above the support.

The 1 hour chart suggests a consolidation period of $ 9,200 to $ 9,300. At the time of this issue, the RSI in the neutral zone (50) is flat and the MACD histogram remains negative. The Chaikin cash flow oscillator also remains below 0 and the price continues to set lower highs.

Climbers will find Bitcoin’s price on the 30-minute chart is already in the midst of an oversold recovery, but The sustained buying volume is the indicator of the best signal.

Bullish scenario

Despite the $ 500 correction, Bitcoin’s price remains above the rising trendline from the recent low of $ 8,200. The day before and during the halving, the price fell on this trendline, and today’s withdrawal to $ 9,256 took advantage of it again.

If the price holds above $ 9,300 and breaks above 20 MA again on the hourly chart, the bullish mood is ready to attempt a retreat above $ 9,600..
