On Thursday, the indicator cryptocurrency fell 3.86 percent to $ 10.094. US exchange Coinbase. The crash lowered the spot rate of bitcoin by more than $ 400 in just three hours and showed buyers signs of exhaustion in an otherwise booming market.
However, bitcoin carries moderate support above $ 10,000 downhill.
The cryptocurrency then managed to record a reverse withdrawal and increased the prospect of a $ 10,500 retest. However, the volumes seemed weak enough to attempt a wild bounce and put bitcoin at risk of continuing their plunge, now within the $ 9,800- $ 9,900 range (pink trendline support).
$ 2,000 Bitcoin Collapse
The overall BTC / USD trend continued its uptrend, prices rose around 43 percent year-on-year. At the same time, the cryptocurrency has remained trending above key long-term support areas such as the 200-day and 50-week moving average.

Just a Pullback

Meanwhile, the analyst added, bitcoin decline will provide opportunities for altcoin traders.
“When Bitcoin calms down, I expect altcoins to return very strongly. There are playgrounds this quarter ”.
