Bitcoin’s contrarian look: A bullish pattern to breakout in near future
The cryptocurrency market remained dull since the massive decline on 24th September and since then the waves of market corrections have halted any efforts of Bitcoin and altcoins in their attempt to regain lost ground.
Bitcoin has been struggling to maintain its position above $8,000 and its price saw another dive below the $8k mark today. At press time, Bitcoin was trading at $7941.54 with a decline of 1.31% on the 24-hour price chart.

Lower highs were registered at $12,307, $10,926 and $10,414, while lower lows were marked at $9289, $8215 and $8189. A descending channel is often followed by a bullish breakout which means, in the long-term Bitcoin price might shoot up.
