Bitcoin Technical Analysis September 20th
Bitcoin (BTC) was up slightly in the week of September 13-20, opening at $ 46,025 and closing at $ 47.241.
However, since then it has lost the small support area of $ 47,000 and appears to be in wave C of a corrective structure.
The long-term movement of BTC
BTC rose slightly last week, creating a little bullish candle.
However, the indicators on the weekly chart are still pointing down. This is mainly due to the fact that the price breaks below the long-term rising support line and then confirms it as resistance (red symbol). It also coincided with a rejection of the bearish super trend line.
However, both the MACD and RSI provide some bullish signals. The MACD is in positive territory and its histogram is showing a bullish reversal signal. The RSI has also just risen above 50.
Therefore, even if the long-term trend is down, it is still necessary to look at the lower time frames to more accurately determine the direction of the trend.

BTC is losing support
The daily chart also offers a bearish outlook. While BTC is still trading above the USD 44,000 support area, the technical indicators are definitely bearish.
The RSI has fallen back below 50 after initially deviating from this level. In addition, the MACD is falling, almost touching negative territory. The supertrend line is bearish.

In the longer-term wave count, the ABC bullish correction completed the longer-term B wave (orange).
Hence, the power drop is part of a longer-term wave C.
The two most likely targets for the bottom of the move are at $ 42.630 and $ 38.350 to $ 38.750. The second range is the 0.618 fib retracement support (white) and gives wave A: C a 1: 1 ratio, so it is more likely to act as the bottom of this move.
