New Support level tested during the weekend
Very low volatility was recorded for Bitcoin during the weekend. On Friday, the price of Bitcoin almost tested the USD 12,680 level, reaching a low of USD 12,730 on Friday the 23rd of October 2020 (fig.1)
A sudden price drop on Sunday
Traders were met with unexpected volatility on Sunday the 25th of October 2020, around 7 am UTC+2, where the price of Bitcoin dropped from a high of USD 13,360 to around USD 12,906 within 1 one hour. Traders who placed their stop losses at USD 13,000 were closed out. (fig.1 red circle)
It is always advisable to always place stop losses below psychological levels, depending on a trader’s risk appetite. Our previously stated support levels are still valid for this coming week.
Bitcoin Price Analysis – A new Support level for Day traders?
When the price suddenly dropped on Sunday, it resisted a price level of USD 12,900. This level is a strong support area for Day traders, as it was tested 4 times already. (fig.3)
Should this support level fail to hold the price above USD 12,900 we can expect a potential short-term price adjustment to the S1 price of USD 12,680.
