The Bitcoin price is trading down some 0.15% in the latter part of the day on Tuesday, as the price continues to move within consolidation mode.

BTC/USD has been moving within a narrowing range for approaching four weeks now, it has come following the strong downward trend that came into play between June – September. The price is has been flirting with critical support, which should be noted at $7800, acting as the bottom of the current narrow range.  

Technically, price formation has formed somewhat of a bearish flag via the daily chart view. It is vulnerable to further potential downside moves, should the current daily support give way. A failure of this holding could open the door to a fresh wave of selling pressure, with eyes then on the next critical support zone at $5000.
