A rising wedge pattern

Bitcoin, as Canfield points out, has recently formed a rising wedge pattern, which usually signals a bearish reversal. Rarely, such patterns can be found in uptrends, but they are generally treated as a negative sign of a dwindling bullish momentum. In practically no time, traders will be able to see whether Bitcoin will fall below the rising wedge level support.

On a positive note, the recent news about Fidelity going all-in with crypto could give a much-need push to Bitcoin’s dwindling price rally.

Bitcoin could also take a hammering following the bloodbath that is currently happening in the US stock market.
