Over the last month, BTC struggled to stay above $30k and consolidated between $29k – $30k. As sellers steadily gained control, further losses were imminent. The recent excessive dip below $27k was unexpected but further cemented bears’ leverage.
Can AVAX flip $11 to support?
The extended pullback on 17 August eased at the June low ($10). It shows all June/July gains were reversed. But bulls attempted to regain control at the time of writing. Unfortunately, the recovery hit the previous support of $11.
The Relative Strength Index (RSI) retreated to the oversold zone and showed signs of reversal, which could point to an extra price pivot to the upside. But the Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) remained below zero, signaling muted capital inflows.
Besides, with a weak BTC below $27k, flipping $11 to support could be more challenging. So, AVAX could consolidate losses below $10 or dip to $9.33 if BTC’s weakening extends.
Conversely, a foray above $11 could tip bulls to focus on the next target at $12 if the current sentiment improves.
Buyers gained little control

On Coinalyze’s 1-hour chart, the CVD (Cumulative Volume Delta) dipped further but showed a steady rebound at the time of writing. It indicates buyers gained little market control in the past few hours before press time.
However, the Open Interest rates remained muted below $60 million at the time of writing. Compared to >$70 million worth of Open Interest on 15 August, the press time levels meant little demand for AVAX in the derivatives market. So, it could delay AVAX from crossing $11.
