What’s the latest with Bitcoin?
Bitcoin is struggling to go beyond the US$40,000 mark and is extending its decline against the US Dollar. At the time of writing, the value is hovering at US$38,000. After reaching US$42,000, BTC broke the key to moving into a short bearish run. On Tuesday, the price settled below US$40,000 and traded as low as US$38,711. Experts believe that a bearish trend is on its way near the US$39,250 mark on the hourly chart.
Speculations are arising that if Bitcoin fails to rise above US$39,250 and US$40,500, there might be a dip in Bitcoin’s value. The downfall might stop at US$38,700. The first support is at US$38,500 and anything below that mark will result in more losses.
