The cryptocurrency market experienced a 3.2% loss in the past day, with Bitcoin and Ether, two of the most popular cryptocurrencies, losing 4.5% and 4.3% respectively. Other top altcoins also experienced losses ranging from 4% to 0%. The Cryptocurrency Fear and Greed Index, which measures market sentiment, fell to 49, a neutral level that has not been seen in two months.
Bitcoin is currently trading at $26.3K, which is the lowest level since March 17, and it has lost over 15% from its peak last month. The technical pattern suggests that there is little reason for optimism, as Bitcoin has fallen below its 50-day moving average and the support line of the last two months. Friday’s early morning drop took BTCUSD below the 61.8% Fibonacci correction level from the rally off the March lows, which indicates that the decline is more than just a correction of the latest growth impulse.
Based on current trends, Bitcoin’s return to $25K is a real possibility in the coming days. While the bears may face some oversold conditions, the $25K level is significant, as Bitcoin did not breach it between the middle of last year and the middle of March. It now has every chance of becoming an equally reliable support.
