Bitcoin (BTC) Price Analysis

The 200-Day simple moving average is still above the 100-Day simple moving average, and this indicates that the path of least resistance is heading south. This means that the bears might takeover soon and continue the downward trend instead of a reversal.

The digital currency exceeded the dynamic inflection point of the 100-Day simple moving average to signal a bearish momentum but it’s still facing resistance at the 200-Day simple moving average. If this trend continues, then the value of the coin might decline below the $6k mark.

But if it holds, and the support at the $6,200 level prevents losses, then the value of the coin will surge higher and break the $6,800 mark to confirm an upward trend.

Bitcoin Price Prediction – Tom Lee
