BTC/USD Daily Chart
On the daily chart, the horizontal resistance zone has been clustered for the 3rd day in a row suggesting its supply zone. It’s touting a sell signal at around the $14,000 mark. The RSI stays overstretched and can flip bearish below the 70 marks, boosting the selling pressure more. A breakout beyond the $14,000 level of psychological resistance may push the price of Bitcoin up to $15,000.
If the selling signal on the daily chart is affirmed, though, and the selling pressure persists, we may see the price plunge of Bitcoin towards $13,000 to re-test the psychological level and sink as low as $12,500. Sellers should consider that a solid support band is an area between MA 50 near $13,500 and $13,200.

Interestingly, Bitcoin retains on to its recent gains beyond the $13,000 mark as cryptocurrency investors interpret the latest United States election outcome sooner in the BTC/USD shorter time frame presenting an emerging selling pressure. The short-term technical analysis reveals that persistent weakness beneath the level of $13,500 might cause a drop to the level of $12,500.
A bearish trend suggests that if the $12,500 level is breached, the BTC/USD pair may weaken drastically. Although trading beyond the $13,500 mark, the BTC/USD pair is only bullish; the main resistance is seen at the $14,000 and $14,500 level. If the BTC/USD pair exchanges beneath the $13,500 mark, the $12,500 and $11,500 level may be tested by sellers.
