Bitcoin is prepared to move down ahead of the rally
Bitcoin is likely to decline towards $ 10,700 after the strong rally of $ 1,000 in the past 10 days. A crypto asset trader recently shared the graph below, which shows the cryptocurrency is consolidating after a sharp surge.
The analyst thinks This latest price action is preparing for a move towards $ 10,700, where there is a crucial moving average, the 0.5 Fibonacci retracement and the control point on BTC's volume profile over the past seven weeks.

Not the only one who thinks that way
This trader isn't the only one who believes Bitcoin is ready for correction. A team of JP Morgan analysts recently stated that the cryptocurrency could be lower as its intrinsic value falls short of its true market value. The company derives the intrinsic value of Bitcoin from mining metrics, namely production costs:
"The JPMorgan strategists said they calculated intrinsic value by effectively treating Bitcoin as a commodity and looking at the marginal cost of production."

Another crypto asset analyst said Bitcoin formed a "Demell 9" Tom Demark Sequential candle on its daily chart. This suggests that a bearish reversal is imminent, as “9” candles are often seen when an asset reaches a tipping point in its trend.
The same analyst noted that bearish gaps are forming between the price of Bitcoin on its four-hour chart and the MACD and RSI levels. The RSI and the MACD are two important technical indicators that indicate the trend and development of an asset.
