Looking at the chart from a technical point of view, Bitcoin’s return above $8,000 will not be an easy task. This is because the broken long-term trendline support has turned into a resistance zone with high congestion of sellers.

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is still trending towards the oversold (levels under 30). The sharp drop signifies the strong bearish grip the sellers have on the price. Similarly, the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) trend in the negative zone indicates that bearish pressure is here to stay, at least in the short-term. The bearish close is evidence that selling activities are at their peak on Friday.

From a long-term perspective, Bitcoin is likely to close the year with a massive rally. The formation of a falling wedge pattern suggests that a breakout is in the pipeline.
