Rekt Capital stated,

“BTC Weekly closed above the small red area from which BTC has previously rebounded. BTC is threatening to lose this area but no confirmed breakdown. Just below this area is the orange region, a strong demand area which ended two -25% corrections in February and September.”

Short term recovery to $52,000

While the analyst does see an eventual recovery in the longer term, Pentoshi warned that the market could be choppy in the short term and traders may find a better entry point if they remain patient.

Pentoshi said,

“I can see BTC short-term trading back towards $52,000 but I think if you wait a few days/week you’ll avoid chop. Buy in low to mid $40,000s. Not get trapped. Don’t see a reason to take new longs here atm. Going to wait for a new trade to come to me.”
