Bitcoin fell to $ 17,200 on Binance Exchange as buying pressure finally eased after weeks of upward price action. Bitcoin corrected from the $ 19,600 to $ 17200, down about 14%.

Analysts are currently divided over what comes next for the leading cryptocurrency.

Bitcoin began to roll over after it surpassed the $ 19,600 mark yesterday. At the same time, analysts noted that the cryptocurrency began to print bearish technical signals near the highs, which suggested that it was overbought. 

Bitcoin Extremely Overbought

Mohit Sorout, a founding partner at Bitazu Capital, shared the chart shown below on the day Bitcoin crossed over $ 19,000.

If history repeats itself, there is a good chance that Bitcoin will correct back to the lower boundary of the indicator and then retrace higher to break the upper boundary of the indicator. 

Alex Fiskum, a partner at Alice Capital, shared a similar bearish chart. The chart shows that the current market sentiment and positioning of Bitcoin look extremely similar to the 2019 highs and all-time highs were seen in 2017. 

Bitcoin price forms a double Top

 A double top pattern was formed near the $ 19,500 level and the price of Bitcoin dropped sharply below the $ 19,000 support.
