- Bitcoin price fell below $25,000 after the Fed rate pause news.
- An analyst points out that the decline saw bulls lose a 7-month trendline support and $20k-$22k could be next.
- The main resistance zone is between $26k and $28.3k, which can be touched if BTC bounces back.
Bitcoin price broke below the $25,000 level overnight Wednesday as bulls failed to hold a key support zone, with the new price weakness coming after the US Federal Reserve’s interest rate pause decision.
Bitcoin had consolidated near $26k ahead of the Fed’s decision. However, as the markets reacted to the news, BTC dipped past $25,500, losing a major trendline that has acted as upside support for the past seven months.
Analyst share short term Bitcoin price prediction
Bitcoin’s decline below $25k now puts bulls at risk of further rot, a scenario that could crystalise if bears take control. In this case, downside pressure could allow sellers to target new lows.
Crypto analyst Captain Faibik says:
“$BTC Bulls have lost the 7-Month Major Trendline, Not a good Sign..!! Is it a TRAP or Bears are back in the Town? If it’s a trap and Bitcoin bounces back, reclaiming the 26.7k resistance, we could witness a Bullish Rally towards 31k. If Bears are back, Bitcoin may face more downward pressure, possibly testing the 20-22k area.”
Another analyst, Ali, says BTC has its most important support area in the $22.7k-23.6k region. On the upside, the main resistance zone lies between $26k and 28.3k. This suggests a bounce could see Bitcoin reclaim this zone and possibly look to retest the $30k area.
“Bitcoin sits on thin ice! Notice the most important support zone is between $22,785 and $23,595 where 1.34 million wallets hold 450,000 $BTC. On the flip side, #BTC faces stiff resistance between $26,000 and $28,250 where 5.18 million wallets bought 2.1 million BTC,” the analyst tweeted.
While the sub-$25k level offers a buy the dip opportunity, crypto analyst Rekt Capital notes that the loss of $26,600 threatens turning it into stiff resistance. A rejection of this level after the Weekly Close below could mean “lower $20000s await.”
Bitcoin traded at $24,878 early Thursday morning, about 4% down as altcoins mirrored the losses. The total crypto market cap was down 3.8%, with Ethereum trading at $1,674 and XRP at $0.47 – down 6% and 7.3% respectively at the time of writing.
