Bitcoin Nears $3,800, What Can The Market Expect?
‘’BTC consolidation below resistance. If we lose strength I look at $3,400 for support. Below there I am concerned. A break out and I’m eyeing $3,800.’’The major cryptocurrency is now showing clear signs of breaking above $3,800 which wasn’t capable of testing since December started. BTC is likely experiencing the increase in price because of the severely oversold conditions on the market. From November, the value of BTC was continuously falling against the US dollar experiencing a high sell-off pressure. When the oversold conditions swamped the market, many crypto assets began their corrective rally pushing the market into a surge stage. The steep decline in the value of other cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum and Bitcoin Cash can be attributed due to lack of fundamentals. Ethereum could not show a higher level of user activity while BCH struggled to gain adoption.
