BTC/USD: Bears are Stronger than Bulls in a Short-Term
Our yesterday price forecast is coming true as Bitcoin remains moving within the range between $8,100 and $8,300.
On the 4H chart, Bitcoin is under the Colored EMA/SMA line, meaning that the rate might go down from the current levels. What is more, bulls could not manage to break the bearish line, which indicates the upcoming drop. In this regard, the nearest level which Bitcoin is about to reach soon is the crucial point at $8,000.
On the bigger time frame, the focus is on the 200-day moving average (MA), often perceived as a kind of boundary between the bullish and bearish markets.
The chart above shows that since the end of September, the price has repeatedly tried to break through the MA 200 but without a result. This suggests weak customer pressure and that shortly the prospects for sharp growth are unreal.
Bitcoin is trading at $8,303 at press time.
