Bitcoin (BTC) could witness a minor corrective if the persistent defense of key support leads to a break above the resistance at $6,400, technical charts indicate.

The leading cryptocurrency suffered a downside break of the symmetrical triangle in the early US session yesterday, signaling a revival of the sell-off from the recent highs above $7,400.

Further, the bearish pattern bolstered the already negative setup, as represented by the rising wedge breakdown and the pennant breakdown on the line chart.

As a result, BTC was expected to test $6,000 (February low) before the UTC close yesterday. Instead, it bounced off from $6,170 — support of the trendline connecting the June low and Aug. 11 low — and closed largely unchanged on the day at $6,290.

At press time, it is changing hands at $6,250 on Bitfinex and the trendline support is seen slightly higher at $6,180.

Daily chart

As seen in the above chart, the lower end of the pennant pattern or the trendline sloping upwards from the June low is proving a tough nut to crack. This could be considered a sign of bearish exhaustion, given the crucial support is holding ground after a 16 percent drop.

The argument has merit as the cryptocurrency created a spinning bottom candle yesterday, signaling indecision in the marketplace.

A UTC close today above $6,400 (previous day’s high) would validate the spinning bottom candle, opening doors to a stronger corrective rally $6,830 (10-week moving average).

On the other hand, acceptance below the pennant support will likely accentuate the rout.


  • BTC’s repeated defense of the key price support has neutralized the immediate bearish outlook.
  • A convincing break above the yesterday’s high of $6,400 would confirm a spinning bottom bullish reversal and could yield a test of supply around the resistance at $6,800 (multiple daily highs).
  • A UTC close below $6,180 (pennant support) would add credence to rising wedge breakdown witnessed earlier this month and would open up downside towards the June low of $5,755.
