Crypto-Crash: Bitcoin price falls $800 in a few minutes

  • After Bitcoin bounced off the $10,000 mark yesterday, the price dropped by $800 within minutes a few hours later and briefly reached $9,110
  • At the time of writing, Bitcoin has stabilized at the $9,350 mark.

Bitcoin yesterday dropped to a two-week low of $9,110 after a rejection along the $10,000 mark, but was able to fight its way back to $9,350 within a short time. The Bitcoin price has dropped by 5.26% in the last 24 hours and at the time of writing trades at $9,381.25. The market capitalization has fallen from $179 billion to just under $172.5 billion.

Josh Rager, Bitcoin Trader and Blockroot founder, says on Twitter that Bitcoin’s daily closing along the $9,400 mark is a bearish sign. He believes Bitcoin could continue to fall to $8,400 and is waiting for a good entry point. If Bitcoin rises above $9,400 again, Rager believes that another upward movement is possible.

Big Chonis Trading describes that Bitcoin has lost a lot of bullish momentum after yesterday’s flash crash. However, Bitcoin is still on the daily chart above the MA50, 100 and 200, however, further liquidations could see Bitcoin break these indicators down and start another bearish move.

Bitcoin Trader “Byzantine General” is not surprised by yesterday’s price movement. According to his explanation, Bitcoin continues to be caught in a large sideways trend, with the lower end at just under $9,100 and the upper end at just under $10,000. So far Bitcoin has not broken through the bottom, but has been able to find some buyers at the $9,100 mark. In this respect, according to the trader, “nothing significant” has happened until there is a breakout out of the range.

Senior analyst Hans Hague of Quant Strategy states that Bitcoin is in a “strong accumulation” and this development has led many investors to hold on to their holdings and trade less. To underline this development, the analyst has split the following chart showing the price of Bitcoin and the adjusted binary BDD indicator.



Hague goes on to say that the current trend clearly shows that more and more investors are buying Bitcoin and that there is a high probability that Bitcoin could experience a “firework” and thus an early upward movement.

The Altcoin market is currently following the developments of Bitcoin. The Ethereum price has also fallen by 6.02% to a price of $234.34. XRP is down 5.54% and stands at a price of $0.19, Litecoin is down 6.53% to $ 43.82.

Further correction possible at any time

The pseudo-anonymous trader “DonAlt” is not worried about the current price movement, as such developments, such as the current correction, are perfectly normal in the historical course of Bitcoin and contribute to the maturation of BTC. In his opinion, Bitcoin could even fall by as much as 40%, as major events have always led to strong price movements in the past. The following chart shows major events of Bitcoin and the price movements that have accompanied them.
