The price of Bitcoin is boring again after it fell below the $8,000 for the zillionth time. As we can see in the Bitcoin latest news, BTC failed to crack resistance at $8,300 and suddenly reversed below the psychological level at $8k.
According to data from Coin360, there is sideways activity for BTC/USD on Tuesday with the 24-hour figures being slowed down between $8,160 and $8,290. After two major attempts to grind higher, the pair saw major rejection at $8,300 and is now in line with projections from analysts who previously said that there is a heavy resistance close to $8,500.
Bitcoin is boring again and remains quiet now. The situation is same since the start of the weekend, when the markets managed to show a spike and exit the $7,000 range, staying higher since.
The short-term outlook nonetheless contains a few surprises. As we can see, the crypto news feature analysts who are not expecting shifts as the week progresses.
“To me it looks like an inside day in which we’re stuck between two levels (on the upper side; $8,300 and on the downside $8,170) without making a clear decision yet,” one analyst said in private comments on Twitter.
He also continued and stated:
“If either way we crack one of the levels, a volatile move should occur of a few hundred dollars. On the upside, if we clear $8,300 I wouldn’t be surprised with a push towards $8,500-8,600, however if we break the lower floor, a retest of $8,000 is quite likely to occur.”
As we reported before, Bitcoin is boring because of the price volatility and a couple of other factors. With this being dropped, investor interest is still evolving and institutional money needs to start pouring in. All of this could help BTC escape the rat race and increase its price, potentially heading to $10,000.
Meanwhile, the altcoin news show that the markets moved a bit. While no token saw any significant shifts, the top ten by market cap typically moved up and down by around 2%. Ether (ETH) which is the largest altcoin, is trading down by 1.5% at $174 right now. By contrast, Ripple’s XRP token gained around 1.3% this time and reached just below $0.30.
