- Early in September, Bitcoin underwent a strong reversal that brought the coin to $9,800 from $12,500.
- The drop marked a crucial rejection of the $12,000 horizontal level on a weekly basis.
- There are some analysts that flipped bearish after Bitcoin formed that pivotal rejection.
- BTC is still in a positive spot on a macro frame, though, some have said.

- $10,000 is a crucial psychological and technical region for the cryptocurrency as it marked previous highs and lows.
Why Is Everyone Bearish on Bitcoin?
Bitcoin’s drop earlier this month and the cryptocurrency’s subsequent inability to rally has worried some analysts. They think that the strong rejection at the $12,000 highs are a sign that the cryptocurrency remains in a macro range as opposed to a macro bull market.
This may not be the case, though.
One trader shared the chart below on September 27th. It shows that BTC’s recent drop from the $12,000 highs to $9,800 was actually a macro retest of a pivotal horizontal level where the asset topped in February.
Bitcoin managing to confirm that level as support suggests that there’s more upside in the works.
On potential election risks, which some fear could sink global markets, the same analyst noted that he isn’t overly worried. He elaborated that once the uncertainty of the election passes, risk markets across the world should perform well as capital enters back into markets.
A further rally in the stock market is likely to aid Bitcoin, which has become correlated with legacy markets over the pandemic.
“We’re also headed into some serious positive seasonality going into Q4. It may be a rocky few months due to US Election but we’ve already had a deep pullback across risk markets. When the US Election is out of the way I think everything will explode. #BTC.”
