Bitcoin price remains below some key support areas at the end of the week

Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView painted a lackluster picture for BTC/USD on Saturday, the pair performing at $39,000 after seeing a low of $38,600.

“As the week comes to a close, Bitcoin has fallen back to $38.9k, while the SP500 followed suit. Their correlation remains relevant to when BTC will break out again. Meanwhile, gold climbed back to the same level as when war news broke”, Santiment stated.

Traders hoped that the price swings above $40,000 would be enough to stabilize the market after the latest acceleration to $45,200. However, the bids could not sustain the trend, sending bitcoin back into the middle of the range it has been in since 2022.
