- Bitcoin bulls have to take the coin above $7,000, but chances are slim.
BTC/USD resumed the downside after a short recovery attempt. The price managed to get to $6,618 before new sellers came in and pushed it back below $6,600 threshold. While trading activity is pretty slow during Asian hours. all major coins are turning reddish again.
The momentum is created by a combination of technical and speculative factors as there are no fresh fundamental reasons that might have triggered the decline.
“I don’t think this is driven on any particular news, just the general downtrend after the 2017 run. A lot of people who bought at $9,000 in April are realizing that they’re not going to break even anytime soon, and are instead trying to get out,” Kyle Samani, managing partner form Multicoin Capital crypto hedge fund said, as cited by Bloomberg.
