Bitcoin on a faint note today as the market showed a lack of sense of direction due to low volatility as we are reading more in the latest bitcoin news today.
The benchmark cryptocurrency was trading at around $7,575 after rising up by 0.8 percent since the market opened. The move upside led the asset to get its net month-to-date gains up by 0.4 percent. It further revealed that the traders fear to make big moves after Bitcoin established the seven-month low in November which was followed by an alarming pump and dump behavior on spot exchanges in the starting week of December.
The situation brought bitcoin to get closer to the possibility of undergoing further breakdowns and the price even rejected advances above the $14,000 level which was settled earlier this year. Bitcoin is now under by more than 50 percent and continues to make fresh declines in the descending channel, therefore, Bitcoin on Monday, opened with a faint note. The cryptocurrency near-term rallies met rejection close to the upper trendline of the Channel, the price tested the levels between $13,500 and $12,000 since July but didn’t transform the upsides into the full-fledged breakouts. In the meantime, it kept on establishing new lows towards the $6,526 indicating that the traders have not found a strong bitcoin accumulation area yet.
In the charts, we can see that the price is struggling to register fresh gains which earlier served as support to Bitcoin’s bounce-back attempts. Over the past ten days, Bitcoin is in fluctuation mode inside what seems to be a Symmetrical triangle. The two converging trendlines create a string of peaks and troughs moving forward a similar slope. The height of the triangle is also close to $800 which means that its breakout will result in a price move of about the same proportions in either direction.
With the volumes going down and bitcoin gets close to the apex of the triangle, there is a strong likelihood of a further breakout in the direction of the previous trends. This move could crash bitcoin towards the $6,000 area. the initial short position towards the $6,500 level from around the current market price looks decent and maintaining a stop-loss order above the triangle is standing above $7,570.
