Bitcoin dipped below $7,000 as market suffers bear momentum

It’s been a long time coming! The top cryptocurrency dipped below the $7,000 USD mark for the first time since May following a 2.24% dip to $6,962, as at time of writing. The sharp fall started at 9.00 PM EAT on Monday as Bitcoin lost over $200 USD in an hour representing one of the worst hours in recent trading times in the market.

The drop below the $7,000 –and a break below the rectangular pattern support – signals the coin is set for a further downtrend towards the $6,500 support levels in the coming trading days. The 3% dip in BTC’s price has seen the whole market lose ground as the total market cap dropped over $3 billion USD.

The weekly price dropping below the MA line further signals the bearish momentum in the Bitcoin market. According to one crypto trader on Twitter, the coin is entering an accumulation period as daily trading volumes keep rising.
