The Bollinger bands’ average is found above the nine-day moving average at the $50,138 mark, whereas the moving average is found at the $49,100 mark. There are no other bearish crossovers on the four-hour charts except the bad RSI score, which is down to the point where buyers would have to make extra effort to bring it up in the four-hour momentum.

Bitcoin price analysis conclusion

The Bitcoin price analysis charts are a telltale of the bearish mapping after the flash crash; the reason for the flash crash is still unknown at the time of writing. However, speculations are circulating in the cryptocurrency market. If the current strong support levels persist, Bitcoin is likely to go back towards the $50,000 mark in a slow yet steady bullish walk. If the current support levels falter once again, the king of cryptocurrency is likely to fall further down to the $43,000 price level as seen in the flash crash earlier.
