BTC price moves south
BTC’s price fell like a pack of cards on Thursday breaching $36,000 for the first time in four-month. However, the fall is not over yet it seems in the largest cryptocurrency. As the weekend begins, the BTC price is on the verge of breaking another psychological milestone placed at around $35,000.
BTC revisited the lows last seen in January at $35,526.65. Now, a weekly close below $35,000 would trigger a fresh round of selling toward the lows of $32,933.33.
On the flip side, if the price is able to recoup the session’s high it would pause the selling at least in the short term. In addition to that, with a decisive break above $37,646.85, the bulls would attempt to test $40,000.
As of publication time, BTC/USD trades at $35,791 down 2.44% for the day. The 24-hour trading volume of the biggest cryptocurrency by the market cap holds at $53,192,120,869 with a gain of 55%, according to CoinMarketCap.
In general, a fall in price along with rising volume is a bearish sign. We advised investors to wait for the clear levels before placing any directional bet.
