Bitcoin was rejected by the 12,000 psychological resistance level and is now at the beginning of a corrective phase. The BTC/USD has formed a visible correlation with gold, which dropped below the 2,000 level. Positive developments continue to flare up, like software company MicroStrategy and its allocation of $250 million into Bitcoin as part of its capital allocation strategy. It turned the US-based competitor of IBM and Oracle into a Bitcoin-play, which could further boost is NASDAQ-listed shares.
The long-term forecast for the BTC/USD remains moderately bullish as central banks oversupply the market with fiat currencies, but the short-term trend is bearish. Price action is trapped between its Kijun-sen and its Tenkan-sen, from where an extended sell-off can take it through its thinning Ichimoku Kinko Hyo Cloud and into its horizontal support area engulfing the key 10,000 level.
