Bitcoin Price Faces Rejection

Downside Break In BTC?

If Bitcoin fails to start a fresh increase above the $27,280 resistance, it could continue to move down. Immediate support on the downside is near the $26,855 level or the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $26,656 swing low to the $27,495 high.

The next major support is near the $26,800 level and the trend line. A downside break and close below the $26,800 level might spark more bearish moves and the price could decline toward the next support at $26,200.
