Bitcoin is still looking south, having hit four-month lows today, but the bearish momentum may wane due to short-term oversold conditions, the technical charts indicate.
At press time, bitcoin was slightly higher at $6,453.
The drop to the four-month low has bolstered the already bearish technical setup and raised the odds of a sell-off to $6,000.
Currently, the RSI is holding below 30.00.
Historical data shows BTC stages a "V"-shaped recovery every time the RSI drops to or below 30.00.
The downside break of the pennant indicates scope for a drop below the February low of $6,000.
Further, on the weekly chart, the RSI fell below key support of 53.00 in February, signaling a long-term bullish-to-bearish trend change and is currently hovering below 50.00.
View Longer term, BTC is still eyeing a drop to $6,000 amid a generally bearish market.
The probability of a major "V-shaped" recovery is low.
Only a daily close above 10-day MA, currently seen at $7,214, would signal bearish invalidation.
