If BTC’s price continues to fall in the coming few days, then it may retest the crucial support level at $24,200. A break below this mark may lead to BTC plummeting to $22,100 in the following 2 weeks.
This bearish thesis will be invalidated if BTC is able to close a daily candle above $26,915. In this scenario, the market leader’s price could climb towards the $30,070 threshold in the following 2 weeks.
With regards to the market leader’s 24 hour performance, CoinMarketCap indicated that BTC saw its price decrease by about 0.29%. This left the cryptocurrency king’s trading at $26,012.31, which was right between its daily low of $25,786.81 and its 24 hour high of $26,248.10.
Along with BTC’s price decrease, its 24 hour trading volume also dropped by more than 12%, which left it standing at $11,175,660,895. On the bright side, BTC’s price was able to slightly climb by 0.45% over the past week of trading.
