The move follows several re-tests of $ 60,000, with Bitcoin now drawing liquidity in a large retaining wall with $ 57,000 as a base.

Analysts, Cointelegraph reported, were already prepared, with some data suggesting that a deeper break to a low of $ 50,000 would preserve the general uptrend.

Charles Edwards, CEO of investment firm Capriole, meanwhile, commented on the situation, blaming leveraged traders for triggering the volatility.

“Basically, Bitcoin looks amazing here on most of the metrics, but leverage traders are out of control,” he argued.

“We won’t get any sustained price increases until that changes.”
