Should I buy this coin?

No one can say for sure, and this is not financial advice, but our market analyst has given us the following outlook on the worlds largest cryptocurrency...

Technical Analysis - July 2022 - Buy / Sell?

"The trend is downward, but slowing."
The Bitcoin chart tells us a story of decreasing weakness - the momentum of the downtrend could be running out of steam as the price stays at the key level of $20k. If we fail to create a lower low here, and the important support level holds - we could see a recovery at least to the top of the bearish channel.
Daily Chart - completed H&S reversal but RSI shows the capitulation is losing steam at $20k barrier

Short term Bull case

4H BTCUSD - support holds at 20k and we break out the downward triangle and out of the channel
In the short term if this level holds and we see buyers returning, perhaps the geopolitical issues stabilising slightly, then a run back up to the psychologically significant level of $30k would be swift as there is little resistance.
Geopolitical issues including inflation, leading to tightening monetary policy continues to plague stock markets globally, with BTC hit as hard as tech stocks as people move their money to 'safer bets'. We see the same downward channel present in the US stock markets as we do in BTCUSD.
