Previously, when the bitcoin price initially made its way to $ 10, 900, a level that has been considered to be a heavy line of resistance since early August, some technical analysts expected the asset to test higher levels in the range of $ 11, 400 to $ 12, 000.

As $ 10, 900 acted as immediate resistance, the bitcoin pricefellto $ 10, 200 and after attempting to recover to $ 10, 900, it retraced to the low $ 10 , 000 reg ion once again.

Bitcoin price still technically at a standstill

On September 3, DonAlt, a technical analyst and cryptocurrency trader noted that bitcoin has been moving in between a large range since July, with $ 12, 600 as the top of the range and $ 9, 400 as the bottom.

While bitcoin tested $ 12, 600 regularly from July to mid-August, over the past three weeks, it has demonstrated signs of struggle in overcoming $ 10, 900.

Earlier this month, DonAlt emphasized that bitcoin is likely to range throughout the foreseeable future and whichever support or resistance that breaks first is likely to determine the short term direction of the dominant cryptocurrency.

“Seems like a lot of people felt the same way. Both shorts & longs stacked & once it moved back above $ 10000 a squeeze followed. Daily candle took us straight from the bottom to the top of the range. Both 9k and 12 k are old levels, whichever breaks first decides direction, ”hesaid.

Traders have said that the breakdown of the $ 9, 000 support level, which has acted as a strong level of defense for bitcoin, could result in a larger pullback for the asset, possibly to the $ 8, 000 region.

Still, it is too early to determine the short to medium term trend of bitcoin and if it continues to move in between $ 9, 400 to $ 12, 600 range in a larger time frame, there is opportunity for both bulls and bears to turn around the trend to either direction.

In the near term, if bitcoin fails to recover swiftly back to the $ 10, 900 level, traders anticipate the retest of the range support of bitcoin between $ 9, 400 to $ 9, 700

There are several fundamental variables including the emergence of highly anticipated trading venues in the likes of Bakkt that may become a potential catalyst toreversethe short term trend of BTC.

Adam Back, a prominent cryptographer and the inventor of hashcash, said that the halvening of bitcoin in 2020 and increasing uncertainty in the global economy could also lead to an increase in interest towards the asset.

Backadded:

“Bring it on, (halvening, lots of geopolitical uncertainty, $) tril of -ve interest bonds, MMT excuses being tested to bring an even more imprudent USD inflation regime. With a $ 50 k BTCUSD price, $ 1tril market cap, would be as Tuur Demeester says not far off. ”
