Bitcoin recently saw a sharp drop in its price, with a slide back down to the $6500 levels. Now, while it holds this critical level, the next market movement will decide the direction the coin moves in for the rest of this year.
The RSI recently recovered from an oversold position, flashing a buy signal. This came after the drop earlier today and indicates a recovery in the short term.
The Klinger Volume Oscillator is moving upwards, with the signal line set to cross over the oscillator if the current movement continues. This constitutes a bullish sign.
The Parabolic SAR indicates a buildup of bearish momentum on the price, with the further possibility of the price moving downwards.
The trend lines in the timeframe extend from $6730 – $6620 – $6500 as the dominant downtrend, and from $6150 – $6350 – $6480 as the dominant uptrend. The EMA is resting at $6590, providing a resistance for the price.
The MACD is converging downwards, as evidenced by the movement of the lines and the histogram tending towards a downwards slope.
The Awesome Oscillator is flashing a red sign after the recent bearish movement downwards.
The trend lines of $7360 – $6740 and $6180 – $6380 – $6500 hint at a breakout soon. The 20-period WMA is also at an important resistance point, resting close to the $6600.
The Chaikin Money Flow indicator shows a strong uptrend, which is indicative of buying pressure in the market. However, this is contrasted by a slight downward pressure seen on the Accumulation Distribution Indicator.

The long-term downtrend from July provides resistances at $7350, $8380 and $9860. Support levels offered by the long-term uptrend include $5850, $6180, $6250 and $6400.
If buying pressure continues, the bulls will be in control. Although weekend trades are subject to low volume issues, a strong rally in price may as well be decided with a push over $6500. This would not only represent a trend reversal, but also a break out of the $6000-$6500 psychological borders.
