Bitcoin downside “path of least resistance”

Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView showed upside fading on the day, with BTC/USD dipping up to 3.2%.

Now circling the key $69,000 all-time high from 2021, Bitcoin appeared uncertain where to head next after snap gains over the prior 24 hours.

Market dynamics revealed arguments for both fresh bullish momentum and a continued correction.

Preliminary data from crypto intelligence firm Arkham put outflows from the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) at just $120 million — considerably less than average for the past week.

“Yesterday’s ETF net flows saw a minor net inflow at +$15.6M. $GBTC saw a net outflow of -$350.1M,” popular trader Daan Crypto Trades wrote in part of commentary while uploading the numbers to X (formerly Twitter).

At the same time, a lack of bid liquidity below spot price kept the odds of a return to lower support levels in play.

“What’s clear, is that in terms of liquidity, the path of least resistance is down. That’s not speculation,” Keith Alan, co-founder of trading resource Material Indicators, wrote in part of his latest BTC price analysis on X.

Going forward, Alan said that the upcoming weekly and monthly candle closes would be significant.

“With last week’s close at $68.9k and last month’s close at $61.1k we could (and should) see one or both of those levels challenged relative to the candle close/open on Sunday,” he added.
