Bitcoin (BTC/USD) Technical Outlook: Lower To Sub-30k Looks Next

BTC/USD has lost a lot of its excitement in the past year, and that looks likely to continue as price action suggests we will see lower levels yet. Since the January low we have seen BTC try to put together a meaningful rally, but continually fail.

This price behavior is carving out a bear-flag, which implies another leg lower could be near. However, before trading offer further it is possible we see another swing higher as price sits on the lower parallel of the pattern.

If 37701 continues to hold then we must respect support, and would-be longs may look to this as a line-in-the sand for stop placement. On the flip-side, for those looking to sell they may want to use this as a reference point. Selling support or buying resistance is typically not a good approach, so waiting for the break is generally the most prudent approach.

In the event the bear-flag triggers, with a break below 37701 as confirmation (on a daily closing basis), then look for a run at major long-term support at 28600. There are several turning points near this point which fortify the zone from just above 30k to the 2021 low.

Trade to that point will be considered a major test of the long-term trend given it runs back to early 2021, furthermore a breaking of support would undermine the long-term tilt of the chart. A lower-low could prove to lead to much lower levels, next up I would be looking for the 2017 high at 19666 as the next stopping point.

    • The crypto market appears to be showing signs of recovery, with significant improvements in the Sharpe Ratios of Bitcoin, BGB, and Ethereum, according to an article published on Friday.  The Sharpe Ratio, a measure used to understand the return of an investment compared to its risk, has seen a notable increase for both cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin's Sharpe Ratio has risen from -2.4 to 0.68, while Ethereum and BGB have also experienced a similar uptrend. This change signifies higher returns at lower risk, which is expected to attract more investors to the crypto market. In addition to the improved Sharpe Ratios, increased network activity and trading volume as shown on CEXs like Bitget, Binance, and a few DEXs are suggesting a healthier market state. The current trading prices of Bitcoin, reflect this overall positive market sentiment. As of Friday, Bitcoin was trading at $27,069.73, BGB at $0.454 and Ethereum at $1,677.89. These developments are significant as they indicate reduced risk in the crypto market. The increase in the Sharpe Ratios for Bitcoin, BGB, and Ethereum suggests that these cryptocurrencies are becoming less risky investments, which could potentially lead to an influx of new investors into the market.  Could this rise in Sharpe Ratios coupled with increased network activity and trading volume point towards a recovering and less risky crypto market?
