Today’s Bitcoin Drop Driven by Massive Volume Influx

Bitcoin has been facing a bout of sideways trading for the past several days, but today’s drop to below $10,200 may spell trouble for the cryptocurrency’s near-term price action and may point to the possibility that BTC will soon revisit its nearest level of major support at $10,000.
This latest drop, although relatively minor, has been driven by a massive influx of volume, which could mean that a massive movement is inbound in the coming hours and days.
Bitcoin Slowly Moves Back Towards $10,000 as Sellers Flex Their Strength
At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading down just over 1% at its current price of $10,215, which marks a slight retrace from its recent highs of nearly $10,500.
Importantly, Bitcoin failed to reach its region of major resistance at $10,800 ever since it bounced at $10,000 a couple of weeks ago, and the fact that BTC’s bulls were unable to push it to its near-term resistance region signals an underlying weakness that may spell trouble for its price action in the coming days.
Over the past several months Bitcoin has been trading between roughly $9,000 and its June-highs of $13,800, and its trading range has been narrowing significantly over the past several months.
This narrowing trading range may signal that a big movement – in one direction or another – is imminent.
Chonis, a popular crypto analyst on Twitter, mused this possibility in a recent tweet, explaining that he believes Bitcoin’s will make “a notable statement this week” while pointing to a chart that shows BTC’s incredibly narrow trading range.

Chonis further spoke about this volume in a recent tweet, explaining that Bitcoin’s latest candle on its 6-hour chart has the highest volume the crypto has seen in the past week.
