Bitcoin Created a Bull Trap, It Could Fall to $26,500

Bitcoin (BTC) price formed a bull trap and formed a bearish divergence in the daily RSI, which could drop towards the $26,500 support area.

Bitcoin (BTC) Creates Bearish Divergence

Bitcoin fell after hitting a yearly high of $30,978 on April 14.

The move was triggered by a bearish divergence on the daily RSI (red line), a sign that usually signals a trend reversal to the downside.

If Bitcoin starts a deep correction, the price could drop to the critical support area of ​​$26,500.

bullish trap

After breaking below minor support at $29,700 on April 17, Bitcoin quickly regained that area on April 18 and formed a divergence below (blue circles). This is a bullish sign and usually leads to a strong rally.

However, BTC price was rejected by the $30,300 minor resistance area and fell below the $29,700 area again with a very high bearish engulfing candle.

The move trapped aggressive bulls who bought as BTC prices reclaimed the $29,700 area. Hence, a bull squeeze could ensue.

If so, BTC price could drop below the top of the previous range at $28,700 and drop to the next support level formed by the horizontal support and the midline of the range at $27,900.

As mentioned above, a break above this level would take the price down to the key support at $26,500.
