The market-leading cryptocurrency fell to an intraday low of $60,350 at 4:23 a.m. UTC on the Bitstamp exchange. This is the lowest level the cryptocurrency has seen since November 6.

“The dip down to $60,600 is the lowest Bitcoin has been valued in nine days. The -7% slide in the past 24 hours has been met with rising interest from traders to buy the dip. Typically, a bit of crowd fear will be necessary to have prices fully rebound”, Santiment stated.

Though analysts still see BTC in a bullish phase, the overall market sentiment has cooled somewhat as the expectations of price explosions towards the end of the year are becoming deflated. Bitcoin closed below the support noted yesterday at $64,000, the next stop is likely to be $59,700.

Ethereum investment products saw inflows of $17 million, with AUM over $21 billion for the first time, CoinShares reported. Cardano, Solana, and Polkadot saw institutional investment inflows of $16 million, $10 million, and $5 million respectively.

ETH has seen a stronger correction against Bitcoin, dropping to $4,249 earlier today. The two largest cryptocurrencies are both down more than 10% from their recent record highs at press time. According to data provided by Coinglass, $287.84 million worth of long coins were liquidated in 4 hours.
