The analyst predicts a double top pattern if this happens. Sharing the outlook with over 349k of his X followers, the trader noted:

“BTC has dropped below ~$28,000 for the first time since late April, early May. Back then, $BTC also turned ~$29250 into new resistance before dropping into ~$25000 in the weeks that followed. Could history repeat? If it does, BTC would develop a Double Top.”

A bearish double top pattern will bring into play the identified key price levels, starting with immediate buffer of $25k.

Bitcoin price dipping to current levels comes after this week’s July Fed meeting minutes, which has seen market experts point to the fact the US central bank may not be done with its interest rate hikes. Also notable has been the spike in US real yields, with the 10-year Treasury up over 6 basis points to 4.6. The 30-year Treasury reached 4.99%.

Meanwhile, US stocks traded slightly lower as the S&P 500 fell to 4,387 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average shed nearly 200 points. The tech-heavy Nasdaq also slipped as investors digested the Fed’s minutes.
