With sustained selling the BTC price is poised for 6% before hitting a significant support.
- A new resistance trendline governs the ongoing correction in Bitcoin price
- The $27000 mark stands as an important support of coin holders
- The intraday trading volume in Bitcoin is $18.4 Billion, indicating a 74% gain.
Last week’s recovery in Bitcoin price fails to surpass the last swing high of $30700 and takes a U-turn from the psychological resistance of $30000. Joining the peaks of these highs, a new resistance trendline can be drawn to mark the direction of the ongoing correction phase.
With a significant price drop today, the BTC price plunged below the local support of $28875. This breakdown may accelerate the selling pressure and plunge the prices 6% down to reach the combined support of $27000 and 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level.

A potential breakdown below it will give additional confirmation for a prolonged downfall and tumble the prices by another 7% to reach the $25000 psychological support.
Anyhow, the Bitcoin price may continue the ongoing correction phase until the overhead resistance trendline is intact.
Relative Strength Index: the daily RSI slope back to the midline indicates a neutral sentiment among market participants.
