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.

    • Why is this stock unavailable to open for non-Pro clients? Surely a fund is less risky than an individual stock.
    • Hi @Kgrp74 Thank you for reaching out.  HMRC rules don't allow you to hold foreign currency in an ISA, but you can still buy international shares. The gains on currency conversions are only seen and credited in the account once you sell the shares if the currency rate is favorable to you. We also have to consider the 0.5% spread added to the exchange rate and commission charges which would normally offset your profits.  Thanks, OfentseIG
    • DAX/CAC Technical Highlights: DAX reclaimed broken support, but rally still not viewed as bullish CAC 40 has trend-line resistance ahead to watch on further strength   DAX and CAC 40 Technical Outlook: Rally Viewed as Likely to Fail Soon   DAX Daily Chart   DAX Chart by TradingView   The CAC is trading around resistance in the 6k area, with a trend-line from the summer high lying not too far ahead. A turn down could find some initial support in the 5700s, but the low at 5628 is the big level to watch. Broad outlook is of course very similar to the DAX.   CAC Daily Chart   CAC 40 Chart by TradingView   Oct 6, 2022 | DailyFX Paul Robinson, Strategist
