Expected bitcoin drop that happened over the past 24 hours has led the other major crypto assets to plunge by 7 percent. Bitcoin’s price dropped by around four percent against the US dollar and we find out more in the coming altcoin news.
The anticipated drawback of both bitcoin and all of the other major crypto assets comes after the technical analyst Josh Rager proposed that a healthy bitcoin pullback will surely come due to the coming off a massive 100 percent gain. He pointed out:
“BTC 30%+ pullback coming? Yes, eventually. If history repeats, there should be plenty of strong pullbacks on the way to next peak all-time high. There were at least nine 30%+ pullbacks from last cycle accumulation and uptrend Plenty of buying opportunities ahead, don’t let it shake you.’’
Over the night, the value of the entire crypto market dropped by around $12 billion from the previous $249 billion and reached $237 billion. In the past 30 days, the price of the number one crypto asset started climbing from $5,100 and reached $8,000 which an increase of $3,000. This is a massive monthly gain against the US dollar by 56 percent. On another occasion, bitcoin came out as a winner in the short-term gains since it corrected itself by 20-30 percent as mentioned in the latest cryptocurrency news.
The 20-30 percent correction could have meant a drop to the $6,000 price range which some technical analysts believe could happen in the previous weeks. Similarly, another crypto trader better known as ‘’Mayne’’ suggested that a drop below the $7,500 could lead the major asset to plunge below the $7,000 support level. He said:
“BTC – Need to hold $7,884 and red OB for upside target $9k+. Break below red OB I expect $7,300 and maybe lower to $6,400. ETH – USD pair needs to break and close thru $260 to get to $300. BTC pair had a nice reaction of range low if we can hold EQ and flip grey OB looks good.’’
The expected bitcoin drop from its position is considered as a healthy step for bitcoin that could strengthen the foundation for the market to start a strong upside movement soon. The founder of Morgan Creek Digital stated that the average return for bitcoin over the past years could appeal to institutions that have billions of dollars to pour in the asset.
Bitcoin Ignores Correction Calls: Where Is BTC Headed?
“$BTC – found resistance right at the lower cloud and has opened the weekly candle inside the cloud. This represents the highest time frame that #bitcoin has breached into the cloud…with resistance at just above $10K…”An analyst named Chonis Trading then took to Twitter with the following statement: https://twitter.com/BigChonis/status/1140410183665049603 He also added:
“One more step up the mountain as #bitcoin hits right at the 38.2% fib resistance making it the next target for the bulls to close over and also makes maintaining the 23.6 fib support that much more important for overall continuation…”As Bitcoin ignores correction calls, many believe that the $10,000 mark could be achieved very soon.

Bitcoin Is Vulnerable, Mayor Buying Zone Is Below $6,800: Analyst
“$BTC still vulnerable. Longs once above $7900-$8000 (higher) or on panic flushes (lower). Next support: 7600-7435, 7200, 6800, 6400. 6800 is major, determined by all three price action, moving averages (50DMA) and fibs (Dec lows to 2019 highs). 6400 is the bull market level.”https://twitter.com/krugermacro/status/1136286134403764225 A new retracement to the 50 day moving average is pretty much exactly at $6,800. Since Bitcoin is vulnerable, this will likely serve as a buying zone, Kruger added:
“I see the 6800-6200 area as a gigantic buying area. I do not know if price will drop there. I know what I’ll do if price drops there.”Another fellow trader named Josh Rager commented that Bitcoin is condensing regarding its price range - which may lead to another volatile move very soon. The crypto trader 'Moon Overlord' also stands on the side saying that Bitcoin is vulnerable. He echoed his sentiment adding a chart which depicts the previous big corrections, stating:
“If you think #bitcoin is in a bull market and are looking to buy the dip, look to the previous run for templates. The largest dip was barely -40%, most are in the -30%’s. A -30/-40 % dip from here coincidentally lines up with the strongest support in the high 5000’s low 6000’s.”https://twitter.com/MoonOverlord/status/1136250450615947265 It seems like Bitcoin is also gaining a negative traction in the latest altcoin news. As we can see, many altcoins are in the red and following the moves of BTC.
Bitcoin Goes Below $8,000 Overnight: What Is The Reason?
“About 20-30 mins before the dump, a whale moved 25k BTC (worth $215M) to Coinbase. About an hour after the dump, a whale moved 14k BTC (worth $112M) from Coinbase to another wallet.”In the coming altcoin news, we can see that the situation is largely affected by the dominant cryptocurrency. As Bitcoin visits lower levels, altcoins are following too. The big sell order may have triggered even altcoin sales - and the market cap of $253 billion is solid proof for that. What's fascinating is the fact that the only gainer in the altcoin news is Bitcoin SV (BSV) which managed to sustain the momentum and stay at $222 which is its price at press time. Besides it, the entire top 40 list is in a sea of red. The cryptocurrency analyst Josh Rager follows as Bitcoin goes to decline even more. This morning, he wrote:
"Bitcoin continues to push down quite aggressively and would like to see a move above $7824 and hold Eyeing that previous CME futures gap that wasn’t explored at $7175 If Bulls don’t step in, I believe the price is heading that way."On the question if Bitcoin will recover, he said that this may be a short term relief that can last hours or days before another push to retest the Bitcoin price action occurs. Similarly, other traders have emphasized that $8,200 is a crucial level that Bitcoin must sustain right now.
