The community is struggling to find the cause of Bitcoin and the entire market is plummeting and most people believe that China’s crackdown on crypto exchanges. Notably, the Shanghai offices of Binance and Bithumb Korea were raided and forced to close. However, Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao and Bithumb’s representatives rejected the rumors and said that this was just a trick of the competition.
Amidst China’s harsh crackdown and the uncertainty about the offices of exchanges, crypto analyst Michaël wrote that a slide to $ 7,700 would be good. However, the present is probably not the right time. Unless Bitcoin starts trading sideways at $ 7,500, he thinks it will plummet further to $ 6,800 or even $ 6,300. The market is becoming weaker than at any time, he concluded.
Lower one it became.
I would prefer to have a bounce-back above $7,700 here, however, it seems unlikely at this point.
If not possible, aiming at continuation at this level. Below here I see $6,800 & $6,300.
