Bitcoin in Crucial Price Zone: Why This Week Gets Exciting Again

Bitcoin (BTC) took a big plunge last week. The price lost traction at $30,000 and briefly dipped below $27,200 on Saturday. Since then, bitcoin has held up and the price has even recovered slightly. Bitcoin hit $27,900 last night, but is rapidly dropping this morning to $27,450 on Binance and $25,000 on Bitvavo.

This puts the bitcoin price down 1.1% today. The trading volume fell by 7% in the past 24 hours. The total market capitalization is $532 billion and the dominance is 45.9%. The Fear & Greed Index comes out at 53 (Neutral).

Investors who bought top sell at a loss

Last Friday, a whopping $240 million worth of BTC was sold, reports James V. Straten. Selling behavior among investors is becoming increasingly aggressive, the analyst says. He adds that it’s mainly short-term holders, who bought the top just above $30,000, who sold the most recently, and at a loss.

Confidence that we are in a bull market seems to be rapidly waning again. Analyst company Ecoinometrics therefore calls the current market a typical bear market.

Bitcoin price is in crucial price zone

Bitcoin has been in a somewhat crucial price zone since Friday. The price is just above the 50-day simple and exponential moving averages, which come in at $27,120 and $27,300. It also sits just below the 100-week exponential moving average, which comes in at $27,630. There is also a so-called CME gap in between.

For now, bitcoin is holding above 27,000. According to the co-founders of analytics company Glassnode, this could even be a sign of a new bottom.

However, analyst Caleb Franzen notices that bitcoin is not yet able to break through $27,820 again. This is necessary to keep the momentum bullish, according to the analyst. There seems to be a lot of fear in the market that if $27,000 doesn’t hold, we could quickly drop another step lower towards $25,000.
