Meanwhile, Bitcoin [BTC] oscillated between $29.2k – $31k and faced elevated short-term selling pressure. If the selling pressure persists, FIL could drop to lower support levels and offer more buying opportunities.
More price dump or a rebound for FIL?
A key support area of $6.0, a former range’s upper boundary lined up with 50-EMA (Exponential Moving Average), was breached at press time.
Similarly, bears retested the range’s mid-level of $5.636, sinking FIL below the long-term trend of 200-MA. It shows sellers gained more market influence and subdued bulls.
Any extended downtrend below the range’s mid-point of $5.636 could slow at the range’s lower boundary of $5.33. The $5.33 could offer an ideal buying opportunity, especially if FIL rebounds and retest the range’s boundary of $5.92 or the recent price ceiling of $6.445.
In the event of an extreme drop and breakout below the channel, the $5.00 could check the downtrend.
A close above the $6.445 price ceiling will show bulls have gained market influence. Such an upswing could tip FIL to zoom into the $7 psychological level, with immediate targets at $7.00 and $7.50.
Notably, the RSI and OBV had downticks – a dip in buying pressure and demand, respectively. But the stochastic RSI had hit the oversold zone, indicating a likely price reversal was imminent.

On the other hand, the funding rate was still positive, at the time of writing, which could offer bulls slight hope. But investors should track BTC’s price action for more optimized trade set-ups.
