Spinning bottom – Sunday’s candle
Head & Shoulders breakdown
RSI is turning higher from oversold territory
100-DMA is still sloping upwards
- An end of the day close above the 100-DMA of $2053 today would add credence to Friday’s rounding bottom formation, oversold RSI could yield $2198-$2310 (head and shoulders neckline).
- On the downside, failure to hold above $1950 (50% Fib) if followed by a break below $1909 shall open doors for $1561 (Head and Shoulders breakdown target as per the measured height method).
- Caution is advised, even if Bitcoin confirms a bullish reversal as uncertainty ahead of the scaling issue could trigger panic selling.
