The Verdict

Markets Update: Cryptocurrency Prices Dip Significantly Hitting a 30-Day Low Many Bitcoiners are hoping the situation in China will resolve soon and believe people are creating FUD to shake out weak hands. It seems bears are betting against the currency’s price as there are a vast amount of short positions being placed among traders. Currently, the market seems to be consolidating in the $3,550-3,570 range per BTC.

Bear Scenario: The price per bitcoin could easily sink lower at this point, but there seems to be a decent floor in the $3,350-3,400 range at press time. If more panic selling ensues, then the price could approach the sub-$3,000 territory. Technical indicators like the RSI show the bearish trend may continue over the next 48-hours.

Bull Scenario: If bulls want to push the price back up above the $4K range again they have some work to do this week. Over the next couple of days, the price may consolidate and bounce back after this correction. Charts show the head and shoulders formation is over and the market should follow with a bullish uptrend in the near future.
