BTC/USD: Can Traders Expect Sharp Moves at Weekends?
Bitcoin (BTC) has had one of the least volatile weeks. The rate for the leading crypto has remained relatively unchanged from the previous 7 days.
Looking at the hourly chart, Bitcoin (BTC) is slowly dropping against a declining trading volume. The most likely scenario for the weekend is trading sideways between the yellow range of $9,150 and $9,250. The coin is unlikely to go down further as there is no selling volume for that to occur and there is almost no liquidity below $9,000.
Looking at the bigger time frame, the bears are gaining strength as they continue to push the rate down. Thus, there is no resistance from buyers as the trading volume drops. This drop might continue to the $9,050 level, where most of the liquidity is located. Such a scenario might happen within the next few days.
Looking at the daily chart, the decline prevailed over the growth, which was confirmed by the bearish Relative Strength Index (RSI). The drop may be towards the $8,800 area, which is a far level retest that last occurred near the end of May, and the bears might find obstacles to break from it for the first time. In this particular case, the most likely scenario is a bounce off the $8,800 zone, followed by a continuation upswing above $9,000 by the end of the next week.
At press time, Bitcoin was trading at $9,192.
