Bitcoin – Can the Bulls Prize Out a Late Weekend Rally?

August 12, 2018


Bitcoin finds support early to hold on to $6,200 levels, though a move through $6,300 levels is going to be needed to avoid a pullback later in the day.


Bitcoin gained 1.5% on Saturday, partially reversing Friday’s 5.77% slide, to end the day at $6,239.

An early pullback to an intraday low $6,008.1 saw Bitcoin manage to yet again steer clear of sub-$6,000 levels, with the day’s first major support level at $5,919.73 left untested as the broader market continued to decline through the early part of the weekend, sliding through support levels on the way. Tracking the broader market trend, a sharp move in the late afternoon saw Bitcoin break through the first major resistance level at $6,483.53 to an intraday high $6,499.5, before pulling back late in the day to $6,200 levels. In spite of the late afternoon move, Bitcoin fell short of $6,500 levels for the first time since 15th July, with the downward trend on intraday highs and lows continuing since late July. Falling short of the 23.6% FIB Retracement Level of $6,757 and with another week of heavy losses on the cards, left the extended bearish trend intact, with Bitcoin needing to break back through to $7,000 levels to begin a near-term bullish trend formation. There was no materially negative news hitting the wires at the start of the weekend to influence, with Bitcoin likely to find its true test in the coming week as the global financial markets face a number of geo-political storms, with Turkey, Iran, Russia and China in the mix.
