On Saturday, Bitcoin bulls were afforded a glimmer of hope as the cryptocurrency jumped 8% from the Friday low of $7,400. Though, this hasn’t lasted. As of the time of writing this article, BTC has just tapped $6,600 — the lowest the cryptocurrency has traded at since the middle of May earlier this year — and is trading down some 6.66% (yeah ominous, I know) in the past 24 hours.

Some say this corroborates the idea that the cryptocurrency heads lower in the coming hours. Trader Walter Wyckoff noted earlier Sunday that Bitcoin is likely to close the week under $7,500, the 100-week moving average. And it did.
This is important as the last time BTC closed under this support level, the cryptocurrency’s price fell by 35% in the three weeks that followed. If history repeats, Bitcoin could drop to the high-$4,000s or low-$5,000s and then bottom from there, then begin its next leg higher.
There’s also an analysis of Bitcoin’s one-day Relative Strength Index (RSI) from Byzantine General, which implies that the cryptocurrency will continue to bleed out towards the low-$6,000s and potentially high-$5,000s before relief is found at last.
