“Update: Still anticipating a return to the parabolic trend. Previously had ~$5,500 on this chart, assuming a quicker return to mean. Since we’ve consolidated sideways for about 2 months, the downside is more like $6,000 now.”

Another analyst, Crypto Cred outlines that the terrific move above $10,000 (broken support) did not offer any sort of resistance. He interprets the lack of resistance to be a bear trap and saying bearish continuation is very likely.

“$10,000 level that was broken support failed to provide resistance when retested. This is usually evidence of a trap (bearish continuation sellers on the S/R flip caught offside).

HTF directional bias favors upside, clearing $10,460s (intraday range high) would cement that.”
