- The price of Bitcoin surged beneath the ascending channel today with $1000 price cut from the daily short opening.
- After recording a daily low at $10000 on Bitfinex, Bitcoin (BTC) is now in the middle of consolidation.
As predicted in our previous Bitcoin price analysis, the BTC/USD pair has finally dropped below the ascending channel on the short-term outlook, which has now become bearish as $10000 dramatically resurface – the bears are back in control!
Another thing to note here is that Bitcoin’s price has tested the four-months triangle’s lower boundary, drawn in gray on the price chart. However, it appears the short-term support is holding steady at the moment. The price of Bitcoin will fall severely if the forming lower lows and lower highs formation on the 4-hour time frame play out.

Bitcoin Price Prediction for August 21, 2019
Taking a look a look at the bigger picture, Bitcoin has broken the five-days ascending channel earlier today, and as we can see, the market is now trading around the $10000. We can expect a rollback to the August 15 recovery area at $9500 if the bears continue to step into the market.
But before then, the $9800 and $9600 are the nearest key support levels, although the $9800 area was tested in the past few hours. Meanwhile, the $10200, $0323 and $10500 levels are now presented as resistance for the market. On the intraday outlook, BTC is forming a bearish engulfing pattern. A daily candle closes beneath the $10k will lead to a significant price drop.
Again, Bitcoin’s price has displayed a sign of weakness over the past few hours, resuming on a short-term bearish trend. The technical support at $10000 level is currently suppressing bear pressure. If the price level fails to bolster, Bitcoin may revisit July low at $9100.
Technical Indicator Reading
The hourly RSI has slightly dropped to the oversold territory. It will fall extremely if the short-term support dips.
The Stochastic RSI shows that Bitcoin’s price is undervalued and as we can see now, the market is waiting for a buy signal.
