Bitcoin price over the 24 hours plummeted from over $12,000 to as low as $11,150 in a violent selloff. As blood runs in the streets and the crypto market turns into a sea of red, investors must decide to buy the dip or sell before things get worse.
According to a massive bearish divergence on the monthly MACD dating back more than a year, selling may be the better of the two options. If the bearish signal confirms, what might this mean for the leading cryptocurrency by market cap?
Bitcoin Price Drops Nearly $1,000 In Less Than 24 Hours, Is This The Start of a Bearish Reversal?
After months of an uptrend, Bitcoin price may have started a reversal. A nearly $1,000 crash today is close to completing a head and shoulders formation, with a short-term target of $10,250.
Crypto investors confident that a new Bitcoin bull run is beginning, are likely to hold strong through any coming correction, while traders “buy the dip.” However, a bearish signal on monthly timeframes in BTCUSD could suggest that a much larger crash is ahead.

According to the moving average convergence divergence indicator, or MACD for short, there’s a massive bearish divergence potentially forming across 16 months of Bitcoin price action.
Bearish divergences appear when an indicator sets a new high, but price fails to do so. On monthly timeframes, the MACD rose to a higher level recently, than it did when the cryptocurrency traded at over $13,000 in 2019.
Bitcoin’s 2020 high thus far is $12,400, set just a week or so ago. This bearish divergence suggests that could be the high for the year, and another large drop is coming across crypto.
