Bitcoin price looks primed to rebound after a 50% sell-off

  • Bitcoin price appears to be developing a head-and-shoulders pattern on its daily chart.
  • To form the pattern’s right shoulder, BTC needs to rebound to $42,000.
  • A spike in selling pressure around this price point could lead to a sell-off that sends Bitcoin to $14,000.

Bitcoin price seems to be holding above a stiff support area that could serve as a rebound point to $42,000.  

Bitcoin price to bounce back

Bitcoin price looks prime to surge by roughly 40% after bouncing off the $29,936 support level.  

The daily chart shows that BTC is forming a potential reversal pattern known as head-and-shoulders. The bearish setup contains a central peak referred to as the head, while the other two comparable upswings are known as shoulders. Meanwhile, the horizontal support at $29,936 is known as the neckline.  

A retest of the said demand level will most likely result in a quick run-up to $42,000, forming the pattern’s right shoulder. Slicing through the neckline will result in a breakdown, projecting a 53% sell-off that sends Bitcoin price to $13,891.  

This target is obtained by measuring the distance between the head’s highest point and the neckline and adding it to the breakdown point.

Regardless of the pessimistic outlook, if Bitcoin price slices through $42,000 and produces a daily candlestick close above $43,000, the bearish thesis will face invalidation. Under these conditions, BTC could advance another 5% to test $45,000.
