Bitcoin Price Drops $1,000 or More Right at “Logical” Failure Point

This week, Bitcoin’s rally and potential drive upward back into a full-blown bull run and parabolic advance reached a high point of $13,200, before got the best of bulls who had kept pumping up higher and higher over the last 48 hours.

During the 2018 bear market, once Bitcoin’s parabolic advance was broken it ping-ponged between peaks and troughs before eventually bottoming. Will Bitcoin once again find a bottom now that more upside potential was rejected for now, and is $13,200 the new resistance to break before another attempt at $14,000 is made?

Indicator Inventor: to Fail at “Logical” Place

At just about 7:30AM EDT on July 10, traded at a high of $13,200 as it climbed its way back up towards previous resistance at $14,000 to make another go at breaking it and heading off to set new all-time highs.

Instead, Bitcoin price was rejected at the important level above $13,000, much like it was at $14,000, albeit less violently. hovered above a previous local high for much of the day before making an attempt much higher. There is stayed for hours before it ultimate was rejected by strong overhead resistance.

The resistance point was a “logical” place for failure, according to the creator of the trading indicator, the Bollinger Bands, John Bollinger. And failed it did, dropping nearly $1,000 instantly before a bounce at $12,000.

With $13,000 as the new psychological barrier to the bull run, anything below it now is bear territory, and bulls will need to stay on their toes. However, if a deeper correction follows here, it could be considered extremely healthy for the first ever crypto asset.

Many crypto and traders suggest that a return to retest former resistance turned support is they key to confirming the bull run structure is sound and sustainable.

Altcoins Capitulate Further if BTC Value Dives Deeper

Another thing that is consider healthy for Bitcoin, is the of altcoins. The asset class has breached support bottom support, and is at risk for plummeting much deeper. Some claim the fall from here could translate to another 50% drop – much like did when it finally fell through support at $6,000 and eventually bottomed out at $3,150.

Coupling that Binance’s exotic altcoins were off-limits for US-based investors, and Bitcoin’s rally since April absorbing all of the capital from the altcoin market, and most altcoins are currently sitting at lows relative to their BTC trading pairs. In USD, their values are still above bear market lows, but another dip in Bitcoin would cause altcoins to drop in value in both BTC and USD in the near future.

Like Bitcoin, though, at levels below here altcoins become a strong buy and also like Bitcoin, could rebound to new highs in a matter of no time once final capitulation sets in and sell pressure lets up.
