Struck in sideway or breaking down-trend?

20 May, 2020

Bitcoin has been forming a sideways price trend of around $9,700 over the last three days. This can be considered bad news for the first cryptocurrency, as for the optimistic scenario the coin had to consolidate above $9,800 to open the door for testing the round psychological level $10K with subsequent attempts to grow up to $10,500.

Overcoming this level will be an essential signal for the markets, as it will confirm the breaking of the global downtrend, passing through the peak of December 2017, mid-2019, and February 2020.

Whales continue to enjoy low commissions. According to WhaleAlert, almost 15K bitcoins were transferred with a commission of only $0.3, which by any standards is virtually free.
