Bitcoin ceases diving as market tries to form a short-term bottom

On Tuesday, Bitcoin ceased its devastating dive, so the number one crypto asset traded marginally higher.

On the Kraken crypto exchange, the currency pair BTC/USD ended up with a result of $3,685.64, adding 0.2% since Monday’s outcome.

After a dire stretch for the most popular crypto asset, one financial analyst told that signs hint at a probable bottom around the current levels. Having lost approximately 40% of its market value for the last two weeks, with little news to drive that powerful move, the leading crypto asset is attempting to form a base around the $3,500 - $3,700 level for the last three days, as some market experts pointed out.

While the longer-term chart setup is still downbeat, with a probable test of $2,970, but in the short-term the charts are indicating that the number one crypto asset is in oversold territory. As follows from this, it might end up with a relief rebound up, experts explained, referring to the relative strength index.

The RSI turns out to be a technical gauge, measuring the overall magnitude of recent price moves to assess whether a particular asset is overbought or oversold.

Meanwhile, altcoins marginally headed south. As a matter of fact, the currency pair ETH/USD slumped by 1.6% being worth $102.55. As for Litecoin, the currency pair LTC/USD lost 0.2% reaching $28.91. XRP/USD, the crypto asset, running on the Ripple protocol, dived by 0.3% hitting 34 cents. Besides this, the currency pair BCH/USD headed south by about 0.4% being worth $168.70.

Having dived over 10% on Monday, futures markets stand still on Tuesday. As a result, December delivery Cboe Global Markets contract XBTZ8 decreased by 0.6% showing $3,625, while November delivery CME Group contract BTCX8 rallied by up to 1.8% showing $3,675.
