The price of Bitcoin (BTC) is slightly up at press time according to the crypto market tracking website, CoinMarketCap. Currently, BTC’s price is trading at $16,753.21, which is a 0.33% increase over the last 24 hours. The market leader’s price is still down 2.56% over the last 7 days.
BTC’s market dominance has dropped 0.32% over the last 24 hours, and currently stands at 39.73%. The 24-hour trading volume for Bitcoin is another off-chain metric that has declined over the past day. At press time, the 24-hour volume for BTC is approximately $11,784,572,436, which is a 54.12% decrease compared to the previous 24-hour cycle.
BTC’s price is still trading below the 9-day and 20-day EMA lines after it attempted a recovery from the December 16, 2022 selloff yesterday. The daily RSI line is now sloped negatively towards oversold territory, and is positioned below the daily RSI SMA line. This is a bearish flag that indicates that BTC’s chart is more bearish than bullish currently.
In addition to the bearishness seen in the daily RSI indicator, the 9-day EMA line is also on the verge of crossing bearishly below the 20-day EMA line.
The crypto analyst, Daan Crypto Trades (@DaanCrypto), shared his take on the crypto market leader’s price. According to a tweet made by the analyst, if BTC breaks below $16.5k then BTC’s next price target will be the “next high volume node at $16.2k.”
The analyst added that if BTC’s price drops below the $16.2k level, then there is a good chance that its price will go down and test “the lows once more.”
