But, bulls might get some reprieve in the coming weeks. Heres why.

Bitcoin Price May Soon Bounce

While Bitcoins price action seems sporadic, the asset follows distinct trends and patterns. One of these patterns is Bitcoin falling to retest the 21-week exponential moving average (EMA) in bull markets to confirm the uptrend.

As analyst Crypto Michael, a full-time trader at the Amsterdam Stock Exchange, points out, this key moving average acted as support throughout the last bull market after Bitcoin tested it January 2016.

Indeed, as he depicts in his chart below, Bitcoin had a tendency to fall by 33% to 39% to hit the moving average, then rocket back to fresh all-time highs in the coming weeks.

Right now, Bitcoin is around $500 away from the moving average, which is currently 37% lower than BTC local peak of $14,000. History repeating would see BTC fall to flirt with $9,000, then rebound into the end of 2020 and the subsequent block reward reduction.

This isnt the only evidence indicating that Bitcoins downtrend may soon end.

In arecent tweet, Willy Woo, a partner at Adaptive Capital, argued that Bitcoin is currently not as bearish as some may expect, pointing out that it has just rebounded off its 128-day moving average, which sits at $9,350.

While the prominent analyst did admit that the cryptocurrency has been overheated over the past few weeks, he notes that its part of BTCs historical personality for it to flirt with the aforementioned moving average many times during a bull market to stay grounded.

Henotesthat the four-hour on-balance volume (OBV) indicator has trended higher, despite a drawn-out downtrend in the price of BTC.This bullish divergence is purportedly the first on Bitcoins four-hour chart since the $3,350 price bottom seen in December.

Also, the negative peaks in the four-hour Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) have become increasingly higher, implying that bears are losing steam.
