The overall picture of the crypto market
The cryptocurrency market has a mixed picture on Wednesday. Bitcoin and all major Altcoins are trading in ranges with bearish bias against the backdrop of declining trading activity. The total market capitalization of cryptocurrencies dropped to $ 239 billion from $ 240 billion the previous day. Bitcoin’s market share dropped to 66.0%.
BTC is again at a crucial stage, with expectations from many traders for a rally at the end of 2019. But market players are also worried that the price may plummet again to 8,400. Altcoins have made unpredictable rallies since liquidity is restored for a smaller selection of coins and tokens.
Bitcoin is still looking for a bottom
BTC/USD had a bearish start earlier today after the bullish Tuesday. So far this Wednesday, the price of the largest digital asset has dropped from $ 8,832 to $ 8,715.1.
At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading lethargically above $ 8,700. But the $ 9,000 resistance must be broker in order the bulls to clear their way to the next $ 10,000 target. In the area of $ 9,020 is the upper limit of Bollinger bands on the four-hour chart and 23.6% Fibo correction level from $ 10 329 to $ 8 636.4.
At the same time, the resistance trend line of the downward price channel since the end of June on a daily chart has been tested many times, but unsuccessfully so far. A clear break above this downside channel could finally put BTC on a recovery path towards $ 14,000.
On the downside, there are 3 support levels at $ 8,760, $ 8,675 and $ 8,540. The $ 8,760 area collects the average Bollinger Bands curve, the 10-day SMA of the hourly chart, and the bottom of the previous 4-hour candle. A clear break below this support area will lead the bears to test $ 8,675. If the bearish momentum extend, it is possible to see a test of $ 8,540, where is a 50% Fibo correction of the rally from 3,227 to the high of June 13,960.
