Bitcoin Technical Analysis for 12/21/2015 – Bull Market in Jeopardy

While Bitcoin has appreciated tremendously during November and most of December, the price charts are showing many signs of trend exhaustion. In my prior Bitcoin technical analysis article, I speculated that another descent towards the pivot zone at $442 would break the long-term trend line, and that is exactly what happened yesterday. Price plunged below $442 and the trend line was officially broken.

The pivot zone at $442 – which provided support between the 14th and 15th of December – has now turned into resistance.

Although the higher time frame charts are very bearish, the 30-minute chart is showing a Head & Shoulders formation. This formation indicates that price could attempt another run towards the resistance area at $442. If price breaks under the right shoulder, then another precipitous sell-off is very likely to follow.
