Technical Market Outlook:
The BTC/USD pair has been continuing the corrective cycle all weekend and during the early Monday trading hours the price has been seen heading towards the recent low at $8,357. Any violation of this level will deepen the correction towards the level of $7,934 which is a key short-term technical support for the price. Weak and negative momentum supports the short-term bearish outlook.

The recent rally in Bitcoin was made in anticipation of Bitcoin halving and it is a classic pump and dump scheme. The larger time frame trend remains down and as long as the level of $10,791 is not violated, all rallies will be treated as a counter-trend corrective moves. This is why the short positions are now more preferred until the level of $10,791 is clearly violated.
