• BTC price auctions with an uptick in bullish volume.
  • Bitcoin price has space to fall on the Relative Strength Index, which confounds the Fed’s demand for higher interest rates.
  • Invalidation of the bearish thesis is a breach above $23,742.

Bitcoin price shows reasons to believe in one more sell-off. The invalidation point is tight enough to participate in the opposing idea.

Bitcoin price is not the knife to catch

Bitcoin price shows concerning signals during the final trading week of July. After rallying 18% this month, the original peer-to-peer cryptocurrency has retraced into a previous congestion zone. Usually, this kind of occurrence demonstrates trend failure. What many traders expect will hold as support inevitably turns into quicksand.

Bitcoin price currently trades at $21,610 as the world awaits an upcoming Fed interest rate decision. The Fed is expected to raise rates by 75 bps to lift the fed funds rate to the 2.25-2.5% range.
