Expert sets Bitcoin’s next levels to watch as BTC gets ‘stuck in a parallel channel’

Expert sets Bitcoin's next levels to watch as BTC gets 'stuck in a parallel channel'
Paul L.

With Bitcoin (BTC) having established itself above the $60,000 support zone, bulls are now seeking to maintain their dominance even as the asset faces uncertainty amid underlying bearish elements.

Amid the recent price movement, crypto analyst Ali Martinez pointed out in a post on X on July 2 that the maiden crypto is seemingly “stuck in a parallel channel,” suggesting key levels to monitor for potential price movements. 

Martinez noted that if the lower boundary at $62,500 holds, Bitcoin could rebound to $63,200 or $63,800.

“Bitcoin seems to be stuck in a parallel channel. If the lower boundary at $62,500 holds, $BTC could rebound to $63,200 or $63,800,” he said. 

Significance of key levels to watch 

At the moment, Bitcoin’s upper boundary of the current channel is approximately $63,800, while the lower boundary is around $62,500. Notably, Bitcoin is trading near the lower boundary at around $62,649, and the price has tested the level multiple times, suggesting strong support at this level.

Conversely, if the price breaks below $62,500, it could signal further downside potential, with new support levels needing to be identified below this threshold.

Indeed, with the analyst identifying the key levels to watch, several underlying fundamentals point to a bearish sentiment that could derail Bitcoin’s upside trajectory. In this case, the German government sent another 282.74 BTC ($17.6 million) to several crypto exchanges, including Coinbase, Bitstamp, and Kraken, on July 2. 

Since last month, Government-labeled addresses have sent around $193 million worth of Bitcoin to crypto exchange addresses. Such moves could put downward pressure on Bitcoin, attempting to exit the recent consolidation.

In the meantime, despite the markets’ uncertainty, some bullish elements could give investors hope. For instance, the market could see an inflow of capital after it emerged that Sony Group was preparing to launch a Bitcoin and crypto exchange in Japan. This launch follows the electronic giant’s acquisition of Amber Group’s local subsidiary, Amber Japan.

By press time, Bitcoin was trading at $62,710, having made modest gains of less than 0.1% in the last 24 hours. On the weekly timeframe, Bitcoin is up over 2.6%.

Based on Bitcoin’s short-term movement, the crypto needs to reclaim the $63,000 mark to sustain any hope of continuing the recent bullish momentum.
