BTC/USD: Is Bitcoin (BTC) going to test the $9,500 mark?
On Saturday, the selling pressure did not ease and, at the end of the day, the Bitcoin (BTC) price renewed its weekly low at $9,850.
When the volume of sales decreased, buyers immediately restored the price above the psychological level of $10,000. On Sunday, trading was held at reduced volumes, and the pair consolidated above the level of $10,100. The recovery was limited to a surge in price to the level of $10,350. Bulls failed to return to the area of average prices ($10,500).
At the beginning of this week, the decline may continue to support 38.2% Fib ($9,441). In the corridor of $9,300-$9,800, the pair can gain a foothold in sideways consolidation.
On the 4H time frame, bears keep controlling the situation. This is confirmed by the increasing selling trading volume. Thus, Bitcoin (BTC) has been trading within the falling channel since Sept. 1. The decline may stop when the main crypto attains the local support at around $9,550.
On the larger chart, a reversal may happen soon as the value of the RSI indicator has almost attached the oversold area. What's more, the trading volume is declining, which means that sellers are losing their initiative. To conclude, a bounce off may bring the rate of Bitcoin (BTC) to $10,600.
Bitcoin is trading at $10,037 at press time.
