Bitcoin - A word of caution and possibility of freefall

BITSTAMP:BTCUSD   Bitcoin / U.S. Dollar
Like the rest of the market, Bitcoin also enjoys a relief rally after the prolonged period of selling pressure. Meanwhile, we again started to notice a revival in bullish sentiment accompanied by calls for BTC bottom, trend reversal, and new sky-high prices. However, we resist these calls and remain bearish on Bitcoin , although we acknowledge that the rally might get prolonged for a little longer. Despite that, we watch ominous developments on the chart of Bitcoin . First, several indicators retraced from an oversold condition (on the daily time frame); however, at the same time, BTC failed to make new highs. Second, we start to worry about the absence of any significant support below the 28 600 USD price level. Indeed, we speculate that if this level is penetrated to the downside, then extreme selling pressure is due to follow. Therefore, we voice a word of caution to the investors.

Trade closed: target reached: In tandem with our expectations, BTCUSD reached 28 600 USD. Now, Bitcoin reached what we previously named the "free-fall area." We continue to be bearish and expect it to drop even lower.
