Looking at the short-term price scenario, BTC is on the verge of being oversold. This suggests that in the near future, there will be a rise in price. Moreover, the volume of selling is decreasing, which means that the bulls might seize on the initiative, pushing the price upwards to the $9,000 mark.

Looking at the daily chart, a bearish trend is gaining momentum, especially with BTC's price breaking past the 200-Day Moving Average (200 MA).

If the exchange rate does not return to a zone above $9,000 in the near future, pressure from sellers will increase, and the price may drop below the 50 Simple Moving Average (50 SMA) to the $8,400 mark. For most of October, this level served as a strong level of resistance for BTC.

In conclusion, the bearish scenario prevails. Yet, BTC has not faced a drop in price, even after the formation of the Death Cross.

At press time, BTC is trading at $8,832.
