BTC/USDT weekly chart
For the past several weeks, Bitcoin price has moved sideways and remained above the trendline support line. With the formation of a spinning candlestick last week, we cannot confirm that this is a reversal signal, end the selling pressure of the market.
Currently, we can only rely on the trendline support to speculate on the long-term Bitcoin price trend.
If the price does not have a weekly candle close below the $40,000 area, we can expect Bitcoin to reverse its trend, and the first resistance for this uptrend at $53,000 area.
Contrary to this assumption, if the price fails and close below $40,000 on the weekly chart, it will suggest that the sentiment remains negative and traders are selling on rallies. The bears will then attempt to sink the price below the critical support at $28,000. If they succeed, the pair could extend its downtrend.
