Bitcoin heads back toward $30,000
Data from Cointelegraph Markets and TradingView shows BTC/USD hitting its lowest in over 24 hours at publication time on Friday, with $34,000 so far acting as support.
The previous day saw the pair reclaim $40,000 for a brief instant before falling back to range in a corridor that had formed at the start of the week. The latest drop reinforced the assumption that Bitcoin would continue in this corridor, which has $30,000 as support and $40,000 as a rough ceiling.
“#Bitcoin consolidating is very healthy for the market after the massive impulse move to $41,500,” Cointelegraph Markets analyst Michaël van de Poppe explained in a series of tweets.
“#Bitcoin is approaching a bounce area here as we rejected the crucial resistance around $40,000. Benefits the fact of further consolidation before continuation of the upwards momentum.Title: Bitcoin slides under $35K despite Biden unveiling $1.9 trillion stimulus
