Trader: $19,700 “on the table”

Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView showed BTC/USD circling $21,800 on Bitstamp.

With $22,000 in danger of flipping from support to resistance, popular trader Pentoshi was among those warning that further undoing of support may come next.

“We made it. Best r/r currently however not a fan of the slow bleed. Would have liked a SFP (one may still come),” he wrote in an update on a prior BTC price forecast.

“Below this can get ugly w 19.7-20.5k on the table.”

An accompanying chart showed the significance of the current spot price zone within Bitcoin’s broader range — and the potential consequences of the range were lost.

Trader and commentator Nunya Bizniz flagged a similarly bearish signal currently playing out in the form of Bitcoin’s 200-day exponential moving average (EMA).

Based on historical patterns, he warned, room for losses clearly remained.

The 200-day EMA also featured in the roadmap of fellow popular trader and commentator Pierre, who inferred that there would be little stopping BTC/USD dropping to its 100-day MA should a breakdown now ensue.
