The king coin has been trading in a tight range between $8,600 and $9,000 for the past four days. The bulls have retested the $9,000 resistance twice, while the bears have also visited the $8,600 support twice. The price is now in the middle structure of the range-bound zone. On the upside, if the bulls fail to break the $9,000 resistance or the downtrend line, the cryptocurrency will slide down. On the downside, a break below $8,600 support will accelerate the downward movement.

The decline will continue to the lows of $8,400 and $8,200. A downward move to $8,000 support can propel BTC to rebound or create buying opportunities that will enable the coin to reach its previous highs. Otherwise, a break below $8,000 will signal the resumption of the downtrend. Nonetheless, BTC has fallen to level 43 of the Relative Strength Index period 14. This indicates that the coin is still in the bearish trend zone.
