Since May 24, Bitcoin dropped to $8,669 and resumed fluctuation between $8,600 and $9,000. For the past four days neither the bulls nor the bears have taken advantage of the recent breakdown.
In this current range, if buyers pushed the price above $9,000 and it is sustained, there is a possible retest of the $10,000 overhead resistance. On the other hand, if sellers succeed in breaking below $8,600 support, the selling pressure will resume.
On a downward move, BTC will find the next support above $8,250. The momentum can also extend to $8,000 support. With this support, BTC can rebound and create buying opportunities to initiate a fresh uptrend. Alternatively, if the $8,000 support cracks, the downtrend will resume. Meanwhile, BTC is still consolidating above $8,600 support.
