Bitcoin:  Bullish Market is Over

Bitcoin: Bullish Market is Over

2021-07-20 • Updated

What is happening?

Bitcoin has closed its daily candle under the 50-week moving average for the first time since April 2020. The last time Bitcoin broke through this resistance it fell by 57%. If the situation repeats the price will reach approximately $13000 during this bearish market. Also, it broke through the key support level of $31000, which was holding the price from January the 4th, 2021.

The plunge in bitcoin came after a big sell-off in the global stock market. Traders and investors try to hedge their savings, that is why they prefer the US dollar and Treasuries to risky assets like bitcoin.

What puts bitcoin under pressure?

In May 2021, China banned mining and trading cryptocurrencies. China’s central bank also reminded finance and fintech companies not to offer crypto-related services to customers. China was one of the major countries in cryptocurrencies mining, that is why the situation around bitcoin will remain questionable for a while.
