And it was moving upwards with higher highs and higher lows. However, the pair just dropped sharply from the Key Resistance level at $40000 to touch the fresh low of the year at $29755. Bitcoin pushed for a short recovery after dropping below the $30000 Support Cluster.
The RSI Indicator has dropped below the 30 points over-sold mark and now recovering to move back above this crucial level. The prices are trading well below the 50-day SMA red line and quite below the Green 200 Day SMA line indicating full bearish bias of the investor.
