Bitcoin: USD/BTC (BTC=X) Relative Strength Index (RSI) for the cryptocurrency has reached the oversold area
Despite Current Trends, Investors Should Stay Calm
According to the Forbes article, crypto investors should not adopt a bearish attitude, even if the Bitcoin price goes below the US $3,000 threshold. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) for the cryptocurrency has reached the oversold area.
A price drop below $3,000 could fill the gap created at the beginning of August 2018. This means that as the RSI drops deeper into the oversold area – down to extremely oversold – new buyers will appear on the market. As the Forbes author remarks, the major support for BTC occurs at the US $2,877 level. Thus, as the price goes down, more investors will join the market and fuel a bullish attitude once again.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.
Note: this chart shows extraordinary price action to the downside.
The projected upper bound is: 3,769.77.
The projected lower bound is: 3,001.76.
The projected closing price is: 3,385.76.
