BTC price may experience a breakdown, according to a top analyst’s assessment of Bitcoin signals.

  • Bitcoin (BTC) is likely to experience further decline, as a new weekly close below the 200-week moving average indicates.
  • If BTC rejects above $26k, it will welcome bears to the party, indicating a double confirmation of the breakdown.
  • According to crypto analyst Rekt Capital, the 200-week MA is a strong resistance zone.

As Bitcoin bulls are facing rejection above $26k, a top analyst has pointed out that the benchmark cryptocurrency is likely to face fresh downside pressure.

BTC price is currently up by 2.4% in the past week, but failed to break key resistance around $26,600. The breakdown to lows of $24,800 last week amid negative regulatory headlines seems to have emboldened bears further.

Bitcoin positioned for downside

According to crypto analyst Rekt Capital, the technical outlook for BTC indicates more weakness is likely. This is after a new weekly close below the 200-week moving average, which signals a “double confirmation of [a] breakdown,” the analyst noted.

Last week, Bitcoin price recovered from lows of $24.8k after the market reacted sharply to the SEC’s lawsuits against crypto exchanges Binance and Coinbase. Commenting on the upside, Rekt Capital suggested that Bitcoin had “run straight into the 200-week MA.”

He noted that if bears managed to turn this zone into new resistance, there was a likelihood BTC could see a “two-step breakdown confirmation.” Such a price scenario was likely to result in further downside pressure.

“Technically, BTC is positioned for downside. Why? Because it has produced another new Weekly Close below the 200-week MA. As a result, $BTC has shown double-confirmation of breakdown from the 200-week MA. Continued rejection here could send the price lower,” he tweeted on Monday, pointing to last week’s prediction.

Here’s a chart the analyst shared, showing Bitcoin’s rejection at both a downtrend line and the 200-week MA.

If Bitcoin gives up the $26k level again, a run to June lows could open up room for more losses. However, as BitMEX founder and former CEO Arthur Hayes pointed out last week, it’s likely that crypto will experience an extended sideways action before a new trigger sets up an “autumn rally.”

As reported by blockchain, the BitMEX founder believes the trigger will be retail trading, and a big possibility is that the next bull market is led by the Chinese trader. BlackRock filing for a spot Bitcoin ETF could also be a significant tailwind in the coming months.
