The breakout of the bull flag will decide whether the Bitcoin price goes to $ 16K or $ 14K


The price of bitcoin (BTC) appears to be taking a short break after hitting a new 2020 high of $ 15,960 on November 5th.

The 1 and 4 hour time frame shows the price squeeze within a flag and for most of the trading day, the $ 15,500 level held as support. $ 15,750 is the level Bitcoin needs to break through to pursue another attempt at $ 16,000.

In the past hour, a dragonfly-shaped doji candle has formed as the price dipped to the bottom to test the bull’s flag lower support at $ 15,166, and as the formation approaches its terminal traders will look for a breakout. which will push through the $ 15,500 to $ 15,600 tier where a high volume VPVR node is hiding.

Clearly, there is a little struggle between bulls and bears, and flipping the $ 15,600 level to support with a 4-hour close will increase the chance of BTC making a third run to $ 16,000.

The RSI also continues to rise above 70, a bullish sign, but the daily buying volume has shrunk slightly after some traders secured profits while BTC climbed to $ 15,900.

Alternatively, a drop below the flag support at $ 15,100 opens the door for a 20-MA touch to $ 14,680. The rapid near-vertical breakout that occurred from November 4th to 5th occurred without establishing any “new support” and, as the volume profile, the visible range shows that there is a $ 13,900 to $ 15,500 gap.

In the event that the price drops below $ 15,100 and buyers don’t perceive it as a falling buying opportunity, there is a possibility of a retest of the $ 14,000 to $ 13,800 level as support.

While a 9%, $ 1,400 drop isn’t nervous, tests of lower support are perfectly natural and healthy after strong rallies like the one seen this week.
