Bitcoin Just Dove Toward $18,300 After Days of Consolidation

Listen to Article

Bitcoin is forming its first big breakdown in a number of days after consolidation in the $19,000 region. The coin currently trades for $18,300, down 3.5%-4% in the past 24 hours as the market finally posts a notable red day.

Ethereum is down 6.5% in the past 24 hours while other altcoins have dropped by even more.

The drop in the price of the top crypto-assets comes as the U.S. dollar index (DXY) has bounced slightly from the lows seen last week. The DXY underwent a strong drop last week that allowed Bitcoin to maintain its high prices while also driving up the stock market.

The S&P 500 is actually up today while Bitcoin is down, cementing the sentiment that the two markets have finally begun to seriously diverge.

A number of other analysts are also signaling caution after recent technical and on-chain trends have come to the fore.

Leading crypto-asset analyst Willy Woo recently stated that the on-chain Bitcoin structure is signaling that investors should be cautious here:

“Bitcoin on-chain structure saying to bulls “thou shall not pass”, not without a reset. A reset means many weeks of sideways or a decent bearish dip. Will we get a dip? There’s no impulse of coin movements that’s strongly bearish just yet. Waiting game.”

Others have shared this sentiment over recent days.
