Bitcoin

Bitcoin saw a turbulent week in which the price dropped by a steep 20% to break beneath $50,000 and reach as low as $47,500 today. The cryptocurrency fell beneath $60,000 at the start of the week as it saw a large spike lower in which it dropped to the $51,440 support (.618 Fib).

It managed to rebound from there by the end of the day and closed Sunday’s candle above the 50-days MA level. Unfortunately, bitcoin fell beneath the 50-days MA on Monday and could not recover above it throughout the week. On Wednesday, bitcoin fell from the 50-days MA as it slipped beneath $54,000.

It continued lower yesterday as it closed at around $51,440 (.618 Fib). Today, the price decline continued for BTC, in which it dropped as low as $47,500. It has since recovered slightly and is now trading above $50,000 as it battles to hold support at the 100-days MA there.

Looking ahead, the first support beneath the 100-days MA lies at today’s low of $47,500. This is followed by $47,000 (long term .5 Fib), $45,950 (downside 1.414 Fib Extension), $4,750, $42,770 (long term .618 Fib), and $42,000 (Jan 21’ Highs).
