Bitcoin predictions: BTC going below $20,000?

Meanwhile, on weekly timeframes, analyst Rekt Capital highlights the importance of current spot price levels. He notes that just above $26,000 is the 200-week moving average. He also notes that a break that turns this into resistance will mean long-term challenges for the bulls.

Further analysis shows that Bitcoin’s multi-month highs of $31,000 in April were actually rapidly shifting in favor of the bears. So the analyst warns it fulfills a ‘head and shoulders’ pattern. Rekt Capital makes the following assessment for the current situation:

So far, BTC has broken out of the Head and Shoulders pattern. BTC also recently turned the Neckline of this formation to a new resistance (red box). Slowly but surely, this bearish pattern is confirming itself. This could mean a deeper drop below $20,000.
