• Bitcoin continues to trade in tight channel above $9,000.
  • Descending triangle on daily chart points out to bearish continuation.

Bitcoin (BTC/USD) came under pressure mid-week following the Twitter scam and dropped to a 10-day low of $9,000 on Thursday. However, BTC/USD staged a technical rebound and close in the positive territory at $9,150 on Friday. Nevertheless, the pair seems to be having a difficult time building on Friday's gains and was last seen losing 0.25% on the day at $9,131.

BTC/USD technical outlook

Despite the heightened volatility earlier in the week, Bitcoin's near-term outlook remains neutral with the daily Relative Strength Index moving sideways near 50. 

On the downside, strong support seems to have formed in $9,000/$8,750 region (Jul. 16 low/100-day SMA/Jul. 5 low/Fibonacci 23.6% retracement of March-June rally). This area also coincides with the tip of the descending triangle that started to form around mid-June. If the price continues to follow that bearish continuation pattern, we could see BTC/USD break out of it toward the end of the month. In case that happens, $8,500 (200-day SMA) could be the next target.

Resistance align at $9,200 (20-day SMA), $9,400 (50-day SMA) and $9,780 (Jun. 22 high).
