Bitcoin faced a rejection at the $28,000 mark after the Wall Street open on October 5, failing to reach its six-week highs. This rejection resulted in a swift comedown for the cryptocurrency, with a subsequent 2.5% drop in its price, equivalent to $700.
Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView showed that Bitcoin bulls attempted to match previous week levels but faced difficulties beyond the $28,000 mark. On-chain monitoring resource Material Indicators had predicted this downturn and stated that another attempt could still occur.
Keith Alan, co-founder of Material Indicators, mentioned that the current spot price zone for BTC/USD had served as significant support/resistance flips during prior bull markets. He suggested that breaking out of this range and surpassing key moving averages could lead to a bullish trend. However, a close below the 21-Week MA would maintain Bitcoin’s range between $25,000 and $28,000.
Despite this setback, some analysts remained optimistic about Bitcoin’s future. Michaël van de Poppe, founder and CEO of MN Trading, described Bitcoin as “very much ready” to tackle the $30,000 resistance level. He highlighted the importance of holding above $27,200 for upward continuation, with a preference for a retest at $26,700-26,900 before continuing the rally.
Another trader and commentator named Ali revealed a trading method based on the relative strength index (RSI) for Bitcoin’s price. He indicated that waiting for the RSI to drop below a certain level (30.35) could present an opportunity to buy the dip. Ali’s chart displayed a previous sell signal and suggested the potential for a new buy signal alongside a local low in Bitcoin’s price.
