Here also, the cryptocurrency rallied from its bottom below $4,000 to close above $10,000. It then tested the same Descending Trendline for a breakout but failed. Later, the price corrected to the downside while painting a Golden Cross.While bitcoin was maintaining strong support near $9,000, it now risks completing the Feb fractal with an extended downside correction towards 50-day moving average (blue), followed by a retest of the 200-day moving average. These levels are inside the $8,000-$8,100 price range as of May 22.Bitcoin FundamentalsThe deeper downside correction in the Feb-March period took cues from worsening macroeconomic health. The rising number of coronavirus cases across the U.S. took a toll on investors’ risk-on sentiment. They dumped assets in almost every market, crashing even the Dow Jones to its lowest since 2008-09 financial crisis.Traders ended up dumping safe-haven assets, including bitcoin and gold, to cover their losses elsewhere, causing them to slump alongside global stocks. But all the market rebounded almost in tandem after central banks decided to intervene with expensive stimulus packages to contain the financial damage caused by the coronavirus outbreak.
