Bitcoin’s Attractive Drop

Market Picture

The cryptocurrency market was falling to a total capitalisation of $2.2 trillion at the end of the day on Monday but managed to add over 2% to the lows, recovering to $2.25 trillion, down 0.5% from the day before.

The technical picture in Bitcoin is almost perfect. The low price of $58.2K coincided with the lower boundary of the descending range, was as close to the 200-day moving average as possible, and almost duplicated the impulsive lows of early May. On the daily charts on Monday, BTC closed in the oversold RSI area, and today, it is already trying to get out of it. All this looks like a tempting signal to buy this dip. However, it may well turn out to be a bull trap, although we give less priority to such a scenario.

Bitcoin’s share of the total crypto market capitalisation is near 54%. Since March, there has been an acceleration in the decline of the share of “other” coins, as buyers’ interest has focused on the leading coins. Such dynamics are typical signs of the first half of the 4-year cycle in Bitcoin, and sustained interest in altcoins may not come until next year.

News background
