Bitcoin maintained a relatively stable movement over the last few days, with its price hovering between $3600 and $3750 range. Although Bitcoin ended Saturday with a price of $3700 and surged even further up to $3772 on Sunday morning (Bitstamp), the major crypto dipped to $3470, losing $200 of its value within just two hours. Following our Bitcoin analysis from a few hours ago, we were not convinced by yesterday’s decent green candle. Bitcoin is now facing the past week’s low around $3500 – A Bull Walks Up the Steps, a Bear Jumps Out the Window.
The decline isn’t strange as it is typical to see a drop in the crypto markets during weekends whereas there is a low trading volume which is easier to manipulate.
XRP and ETH are also recording losses of 3.15% and 4.31%, with their current prices now at $0.32 and $119 respectively. During the week, ETH price faced a strong resistance around $127 and $129 but unable to enter the $200 level.
