The cryptocurrency market is down 0.6% over the past 24 hours, falling to $1.15 trillion, as we see reduced volatility and attempts to “buy the bottom”.
Bitcoin is testing and attempting to hold above its 50-day moving average on Monday and Tuesday. As it does so, we, for now, see some reduced volatility and attempts to form a local bottom. It could be an attempt to return to buying after a corrective pullback or a consolidation before a new downward impulse.
Regarding technical analysis, bitcoin’s correction will only become a new downtrend when the price consolidates below $26.5K, 61.8% of the upside momentum from the March lows and the bottom of last month’s consolidation.
