Analyst: If Bitcoin (BTC) Breaks Below $7,500, a 10% Drop Would Be in Play

After days of inaction, Bitcoin (BTC) bears have finally shown their hand. In the past 24 hours, the leading cryptocurrency has lost around 3%, falling from a multi-day high of around $7,950 to $7,650 as of the time of writing this.

With this move, which many believe will set the trend for the cryptocurrency market, analysts have kept their eye on the charts, trying to determine in what direction Bitcoin will head next.

Bitcoin in Crucial Area, Keep Your Head Up

According to analyst Financial Survivalism, Bitcoin is currently in a crucial area of support in the $7,600 region. This is because, at current levels, BTC is testing a horizontal block of support at $7,600 and is flirting with the 200 four-hour exponential moving average, a key short-term trend line.

This is the second time that this pattern has played out in the past week, meaning that a retest will likely set the tone for cryptocurrencies for the coming week.

Survivalism explains that if BTC manages to close its four-hour and daily candle above $7,615, he would be inclined to suggest that Bitcoin will continue a bull trend, as it would have broken above a descending bear channel.

If BTC closes under $7,500, however, Survivalism believes that $6,800 will be in play just over 10% lower than current prices. At $6,800 lies a horizontal block of resistance, and an uptrend line that Bitcoin touched three times in late-March and Aprils surge higher.

While optimists are hoping that Bitcoin will continue higher from here, most are expecting for a move lower.

Per previous reports from NewsBTC, legendary Bitcoin investor Trace Mayer noted that the Mayer Multiple (BTC over its 200-day moving average) is showing that the market is still slightly frothy. More specifically, the multiple is reading a 1.82, the highest this indicator has been since early-2018.

With this in mind, the American investor, an anti-establishment figure that is an angel/early-stage investor in Kraken and Armory, added that he expects for the multiple to undergo a gentle retreat to anywhere from 1.4 to 1.6, which would result in prices of anywhere from $6,500 to $7,500.

Responding to the observation about the Mayer Multiple, Tuur Demeester, a partner atAdamant Capital that called the bottom of (this and) the last cycle, noted that his team is cautious. Citing aseminal report that Adamant releasedprior to Bitcoins rally past $4,000, $6,000, and $8,000 in rapid succession, Demeester explains that his firms indicators now read greed after capitulation.

Then, the fund wrote that should $9,000 prove [to be] the top, which has seemingly occurred with Monday and Tuesdays bull-scaring price action, a 2012-esque correction could be seen. This would result in Bitcoin trading in a range between $6,800 and $7,680, which is a 27% to 44% retrace of the upside rally.
