Weekly chart

Historically, at the end of each bear market, after experiencing a +80% correction, the price briefly touched the 200-week moving average as Bitcoin attempted to find a long-term bottom and begin its next bullish rally.

Notably, during the recent significant shakeout, the price fell below this resulting moving average and returned to the breakout level at around $24K. If the pullback pattern holds, it can be taken as a validation for another leg to the $16K level. Conversely, if the cryptocurrency succeeds in breaching the moving average, a rebound to the $27K resistance level is highly anticipated.

4-hour chart

After experiencing a bearish extension rally, the price formed a well-known classic pattern called a flag. After testing the lower edge along with the $19K support level, the price has finally started a short-term rally and tried to break the upper boundary. However, BTC failed to overtake the threshold above the flag and is falling slightly.

Nevertheless, a clear double-top price action pattern (notable reversal pattern) can be determined on Bitcoin’s 4-hour timeframe chart. Considering that, BTC is likely to experience another shakeout to retest $19K. If the critical support level of $19K fails to hold the price, the next destination will be the $16K mark. On the other hand, there is a high expectation for price to use the existing disequilibrium/market inefficiencies at around $22K to initiate its next major rally towards significant resistance at $27K.

Bitcoin Short Term Holder SOPR

Bitcoin has been bouncing off the $20K support area in the past few weeks after realizing massive losses from various groups of market participants.

The recent uptrend led to some profit-taking by short-term holders, who bought bitcoin at $20K or less in the past two months. This behavior is displayed in SOPR chart of short holders with SOPR values ​​above 1 for the first time since March 2022.

Previous profit-taking periods in the current bearish trend were mostly by smart money who took advantage of the exit liquidity available after a short rally. Their selling pressure has led to the initiation of a new bearish pattern. Therefore, their current behavior is no different, and if these profit margins increase over the next few weeks, they could act as a catalyst for another bearish continuation in the short term.
