In the short term, the crucial technical resistance level is $35,500. Throughout the past 24 hours, Bitcoin has continuously rejected at that level. When Bitcoin rose to around $35,500 on Binance earlier on Jan. 13, it saw an 8% drop shortly thereafter, indicating that there is strong selling pressure.
A pseudonymous trader known as “Byzantine General” outlined that there are additional sell orders on Coinbase in the $36,500–$37,000 range, saying “I’m still not taking bets” and adding that he is “casually buying dips with spot.” There is significant uncertainty in the market due to the large price swings between $31,000 and $35,000 with no breakouts or bearish invalidations. The trader also noted that Bitcoin is currently at “VWAP” resistance, with high selling pressure at key resistance levels.
The price of Bitcoin (BTC) is ranging between $32,000 and $35,000 after the big flush drop on Jan. 12. Traders remain mixed around BTC’s short-term trajectory due to various conflicting signals. Some are bullish because of the quick recovery from $30,500 and Grayscale reopening its products to new investors. Others are cautious due to the continuous rejection at the $35,000–$36,000 resistance range.
