The trader spotted Bitcoin inside an in-verse cup-and-handle pattern earlier this month, a bearish structure that forms during a price wave downward, followed by a stabilising period.
The technical design typically leads the price lower by as much as the size of the previous decline.Bitcoin topped near $65,000 in mid-April before reversing to the downside in later sessions.
The cryptocurrency crashed to as low as $28,800 on June 22 after attempting to keep prices above $30,000 repeatedly.
It success-fully did so but fell short of extending its bullish reversal momentum after facing comparatively higher selling pressure in the $35,000–$36,000 range.
