10 percent bitcoin pullback - what next?

10 percent bitcoin pullback - what next?

Bitcoin suffered its biggest pullback since September 2023. Will the price recover here, or is this just the beginning of a major 30% to 40% reversal?

A bad Monday

From a local top of $44,700, bitcoin dumped all the way down to $40,200 over the course of the last three days. Monday was the worst day, as $BTC recorded a more than 8% dive.

For sure, as far as bitcoin is concerned, a rapid 10% drop isn’t a particularly big deal, but taking the 8% hit on just one day may have perhaps made some holders more than a little nervous.

Recovery initiated?

The good thing for the potential fightback is that the price did recover around 2.5% by the end of the day on Monday, and Tuesday has seen $BTC lift another 1.5% on the day so far.

Looking at the chart for bitcoin, the ominous looking M top pattern has played out. The fact that $BTC is now consolidating nicely above the 0.382 fibonacci level on the daily time frame is certainly something to celebrate. A bounce from here, rather than the 0.618 is also bullish.

$BTC trend line still intact

$42,000 through to $43,000 is providing some solid resistance, and therefore it is only normal to see a rejection from this level. The trend line stretching back to mid-October provided support at the bottom of the bitcoin dump, and so perhaps we will see a resumption of bitcoin’s trek towards that all-important $48,000 price level.
