Bitcoin (BTC) is trading lower after a brief 5% bounce on Sunday. The cryptocurrency stalled at around $35,000 resistance and could find support at $30,000, which is the bottom of a monthlong trading range.

  • The relative strength index (RSI) on the four-hour chart is declining near overbought territory. That is similar to last week, which preceded a nearly 15% price drop.
  • Buyers were able to defend $30,000 support last week, registering a higher low from the June 22 shakeout. This means sideways trading could persist until a decisive breakout above $40,000 or breakdown below $30,000 occurs.
  • Bitcoin is still in relief mode following the May sell-off and is up about 7% over the past week, although upside appears to be limited below $40,000 given the intermediate-term downtrend.
