Bitcoin prices are moving to new lows with BTC/USD prices dipping to USD 7,100 levels within this trading session. All this selling pressure is expressed under a period of decreased trading volumes. Signals are indicating that the bear market might still be holding strong.

The day’s signals

  1. BTC/USD experiences losses around 4% in the last 24 hours with the more recent dip around USD 7,100 levels.
  2. Sizable downward spikes appear to be the moving force behind the price decline amid a stagnant trading session with low volumes.
  3. Bitcoin traders only appeared to be taking consideration for a few hours before each new price fall.

GDAX BTC/USD charts are showcasing the market’s lack of support as prices keep falling. Bitcoin markets experienced a dip from price levels slightly below USD 7,400 down to sub USD 7,200 levels. Traders don’t seem to flinch with such downward pressure under such a bearish market sentiment. The reaction traders appear to have to downward spikes of that size goes to show that the market’s sentiment is bearish as ever in the last few weeks.

OKEX BTC/USD weekly futures charts showcase a similar mood. Futures traders are mirroring movements of live markets closely. The spread between futures rates and spot prices remain minimal with futures staying especially close to live markets during each dip. Provided that downward spikes keep being the driving force behind all notable moves in the market, Bitcoin futures traders are cautiously following what happens in live markets.

The overall outlook of Bitcoin markets looks grimmer day after day. On the plus side, the state of Bitcoin markets might not be just as bad as certain altcoins. Bitcoin’s fall is prompting a market-wide downtrend though. And with new lows being reached day after day, the market would need something more than just volumes to form support and break through the pressure.

  1. Bitcoin prices fell from the day’s peak at USD 7,700 price levels with a drop down to USD 7,300 levels earlier today.
  2. While a recovery was realized above USD 7,500 prices, a selloff had traders taking consideration at USD 7,400 levels.

GDAX BTC/USD charts are indicating the shattering of support levels with today’s downward spike. While markets did recover, the downtrend keeps prices from rising. Through more recent hours, a fall further down to USD 7,300 levels keeps seeming more plausible. It’s obvious that consideration after the recovery didn’t manage to last too long. Traders succumbed to a bearish breakout with the downward spiral even continuing after it. It’d be safe to assume that resistance levels might be starting to form below USD 7,500 levels with the markets even being vulnerable to further price falls as volumes remain low.

OKEX BTC/USD charts showcase that futures traders are continuing to support closely mirroring spot prices. There hasn’t been much space for a difference between the two markets with so much uncertainty around. Traders in markets for bitcoin futures have surely gotten wind of the worsening market sentiment that’s driven by uncertainty. With trading volumes continuing to go down from being already low in previous trading sessions, not much confidence can be placed in markets.

All in all, traders seem to be preparing for even worse outcomes in spite of the already worsening conditions experienced in bitcoin markets. Volumes kept going down in spite of already being low in previous trading sessions. It is such signals that lead traders to exercise more caution and ultimately markets end up with even thinner support. With new lows reached through yet another day, indicating that there’s no positive sign showing that the downtrend might be close to an end.

Bitcoin Price Analysis, 23rd May 2018: BTC/USD Dips Below $7,500 in Wake of Bearish Breakout

Bitcoin markets are under a bearish market sentiment with prices undergoing strong selling pressure.  Today’s trading session had traders experience major breaches in Bitcoin’s price, with prices continuing to be following a downward spiral.

The day’s signals

  1. Bitcoin markets continue experiencing breach after breach with no sign of support being present.
  2. BTC/USD levels now reach USD 7,300 price levels only a day after USD 8,000 price levels were breached.
  3. Markets aren’t appearing to take much consideration for positive price movements. Resistance appears to be bringing selling pressure even after price falls.

GDAX BTC/USD charts are showcasing the disdain traders have towards any and all positive movements. The market’s sentiment has worsened considerably, and traders don’t seem to think twice when giving in to selling pressure. Large sell offs have dominated the day’s course, making up a significant portion of the day’s trading volumes in spite of the largest spikes happening momentarily. It’s no wonder that periods through which the most selling pressure was expressed accounted for the bigger chunk of the day’s trading volumes.

OKEX BTC/USD weekly futures charts are showcasing how futures markets are pricing in for Bitcoin at lower prices than spot trades. This is a trend that was kept up throughout the day. Larger downward spikes continue being reflected with accuracy on futures markets. All that while futures markets appear to show hesitation when it comes to following. It is clear that the shift in the market’s sentiment has also lead to an overturn of the mood in futures markets.

Overall, a very sharp shift in the market’s sentiment is now being embraced by traders. Bitcoin markets are struggling to maintain any level of support that could prove viable with each bearish breakout followed by another. Markets are not looking good with traders drifting away from the potential of a recovery.

For an improvement in the market’s outlook, a lot of liquidity would have to come in the form of support. The need for such moves becomes apparent in trading sessions like the more recent one. Lower trading volumes are known to  leave markets susceptible to further breaches.

Bitcoin Price Analysis, 18th May 2018: BTC/USD Recovers From Sub $8,000 Slump

The day’s trading session was followed by notable volatility with bitcoin price falling to a low of 7,950 levels. However, the breach below USD 8,000 did not last long as prices recovered briefly. In the more recent hours, markets keep trading around USD 8,200 levels following a recovery.

The Day’s Signals

  1. A major selloff caused prices to go from USD 8,200 levels to hovering above USD 8,000.
  2. The followup to the downward spike included yet another selloff that this time caused a breach below 8,000.
  3. Interestingly enough, the breach appears to have kickstarted a wave of buying pressure. Such trend is not yet showing any signs of longevity though.

GDAX BTC/USD charts are indicating that support for USD 8,000 might be underlying. The fact that a breach was observed today wouldn’t normally bring confidence, but the market’s reaction begs otherwise. Traders shouldn’t be too quick to judge of course, as the day’s trading volumes have gone down in comparison to the last few days. Big orders causing price spikes appear to be a driving force in today’s trading session. The market’s response to the spike that pushed prices to a breach certainly does showcase some support though. The market taking consideration on the recovered USD 8,200 brings on a more positive outlook in the following of a breach.

OKEX BTC/USD weekly futures showcase a tendency of futures traders to exaggerate selling pressure to an extent, which becomes more apparent at the time of the day when greater selling pressure was observed. Futures markets did, however, break out of this sentiment with prices moving up again. The difference in futures prices and markets rates grew to a bigger difference with futures maintaining higher prices.

In summary, today’s response to the sizable downward spike that was experienced was notably positive. It’s worth pointing out that markets appear to be on an overall downtrend over the span of this week. With that in mind, support for a recovery after a breach might showcase that underlying support could be holding up for USD 8,000 levels. Of course, a day with decreased volumes would not set a sentiment of support in stone. For that reason, the sustainability of the recovery remains to be seen.
