The bounce on 29 August occurred from a bullish order block from 14 June, highlighted in cyan. Before that, the price was stuck in limbo at the $26k level, which underlined bearish exhaustion.

In the 1-day timeframe, the market structure remained bearish. While it has managed to breach the $26.6k mark, the more significant lower highs at $29.8k and $30.2k remained unbeaten.

Hence, it was likely that sellers were lined up at that region, and bulls could have a hard time driving prices above it.

Bitcoin appeared to have formed a range between $24.8k to $31.8k. The mid-range mark at $28.4k was also a level that could oppose further gains. The RSI was at 47 and showed the momentum has not shifted wholly bullish. The OBV did not see a notable uptick due to the reduced trading volume in recent weeks.

The lower timeframe market structure shift was positive for BTC bulls, and a retest of the $26.6k-$26.8k area could offer traders a short-term buying opportunity.

Liquidity at $28.5k and $30k meant bulls will have to be careful when BTC nears these levels

CryptoQuant’s data showed BTC flow out of exchanges intensified over the past two weeks. This was a sign of accumulation of the asset, and was a positive sign in the long term. However, for traders, this does not necessarily mark a long-term bottom.

Bulls must beware of the possibility of another move toward $25k if they are unable to defend the $26.3k-$26.7k region. Aggressive traders can look to enter upon a retest of this zone and a positive reaction.
