In the latest Bitcoin news, we have a new bloodbath on the market which led the price of Bitcoin, the most dominant cryptocurrency, to below $6,000 and to the lowest price it has ever seen this year.
The yearly low was $5,280, after which the Bitcoin price managed to correct. However, the BTC/USD index managed to fall more than 12% ahead of the US trading session and is now trading at $5,647. It seems like the pair was trading comfortably inside a narrow trading range since September this year, leading many to believe that Bitcoin had established a bottom around $6,000.
However, the latest selling action showed the very opposite. In the crash, the market lost more than $26 billion and digital assets managed to drop by additional 15% to 20%, led by the downward trend set by Bitcoin.
The flash-crash, as the analysts label it, managed to change the dynamics and technical indicators of Bitcoin. According to some fresh analysis, Bitcoin has a potential to fall to as low as $4,500 before it attempts a brief rebound towards the upper trend line of the wedge formation.
What’s safe to say is that the BTC/USD pair has established a new yearly low which serves a decent interim support level. In case Bitcoin breaks above the $5,650 resistance level, a long position towards $5,750 looks achievable.
Nonetheless, a breakdown action is definitely possible at this moment – and no one knows how far this downtrend can go.
Bitcoin Plunges To A Yearly Low, Market Is ‘Prepared’ To Go Below $100 Billion
“As BTC is approaching the target of the 2014 fractal the targets of most people change from 3k to 1k and even lower. I still think $2,700 is an excellent place to buy if we should go there. ‘History doesn’t repeat itself but it often rhymes.’”Currently, there is a big risk in shorting and longing Bitcoin and other major cryptocurrencies in the market, which is why investors are observing the short-term trend of the crypto market by holding out on their trading activity.
Bitcoin Reaches A New Yearly Low At $3,200, Downward Trend Continues
“BTC lowest daily close year to date. Is there still a chance of recovery before more lows? Well, maybe. But I am not betting on it.”Another analyst named DonAlt echoed a similar sentiment and said that until the price of Bitcoin breaks out of the resistance levels at $3,600 and $3,800, drops like this will be expected. “Closed below the swing low – harsh rejection followed. There isn’t much support on the daily time frame still. So far prior support areas have flipped into resistance. Until that changes – stay away from longs,” he wrote. So far, Bitcoin has been able to maintain a range of $3,000 to $4,000 for over three weeks, from November 24th. Until the asset begins to demonstrate signs of a multi-month consolidation period and a high level of stability, any form of a gradual recovery is unlikely to happen. Bitcoin has recently consolidated from the yearly low of $3,200 and is now trading at $3,301.
