• Bitcoin price shows clear divergence and a downtick in volume as price ascends.
  • Bitcoin price remains submerged behind Glassnode’s Difficulty Ribbon on-chain metric.
  • BTC price remains fundamentally bearish until $30,000 is breached.

Bitcoin price shows fundamentals are likely sidelined from the market until higher targets are reached. Still, a trader understands to always look for opportunities and manage risk accordingly.

Bitcoin price shows stagnation 

Bitcoin price is having trouble propelling towards higher targets. The peer-to-peer digital asset has performed quite erratically during July as traders experienced shakeouts and fakeouts in both directions. Because of the unpredictable behavior, the Bitcoin price ascent looks rather congested. This subtle display of uncertainty can be viewed as a weakness of trend amongst technical analysts. An opportunity to short the digital asset could present itself in the coming weeks. 

Bitcoin price currently trades at $23.438. The Volume Profile indicator confounds the idea of a weakening trend as the cumulative volume tapers while the BTC price ascends. Additionally, the Bitcoin price is beginning to bear restrictions at both the $23,000 and $25,400 levels, causing a wedge-like pattern.

Glass Node’s Difficulty Ribbon justifies the inconvenient times experienced by Bitcoin. The June 12 sell-off, which finally broke support, now has the Bitcoin price submerged below it. The bulls would need to re-hurdle the colorful barrier near $30,000 before confident fundamentalists re-enter the market.

BTC price remains fundamentally bearish until $30,000 is breached. However, traders with a keen eye may be able to make a profit in the coming days by shorting the notorious Crypto King. Still, the technicals suggest entry may be a bit too soon, but a breach of the intended market structure could be an early entry signal.
