A sudden price drop on Sunday

Traders were met with unexpected volatility on Sunday the 25th of October 2020, around 7 am UTC+2, where the price of Bitcoin dropped from a high of USD 13,360 to around USD 12,906 within 1 one hour. Traders who placed their stop losses at USD 13,000 were closed out. (fig.1 red circle)

It is always advisable to always place stop losses below psychological levels, depending on a trader’s risk appetite. Our previously stated support levels are still valid for this coming week.
