Bitcoin (BTC) Price Prediction – August 16, 2020
Bitcoin is on a downward move as the king coin reaches the low of $11,745. The bottom line is that selling pressure will resume if the $11,700 support is breached. Also, the bullish scenario stands to be invalidated if the $11,100 and $11,250 support fails to hold.

Resistance Levels: $10,000, $11, 000, $12,000
Support Levels: $7,000, $6,000, $5,000

BTC/USD – Daily Chart

BTC/USD  have retested the $12,000 resistance thrice without breaching the overhead resistance. The BTC price is falling now at the time of writing. The significance of its fall is that it must not fall beyond $11,100. The current uptrend may be invalidated if the bears break below $11,100 support. BTC price may fall to $10.400. Subsequently, the downtrend will continue to a low of $10,000 and $9,800. Conversely, for the upside momentum to continue, the upside price range of $11,100 to $11,300 must hold. In other words, if these support levels hold, it implies that the market wants to resume upward.
