TL;DR Breakdown:

  • Bitcoin traders are now at their most bearish level, following the decline in BTC to $56.9k.

Since November 18, the largest cryptocurrency has been trading below $60,000. But earlier today, the price of Bitcoin (BTC) reached the $60k level; however, it faced a hard resistance and failed to be maintained the level. 

As seen on the chart above, Bitcoin touched $60,029 on the Binance market some hours ago. Thereafter, it began crashing again, down below $56,900. It can be said that the $60k price level has somewhat become resistance for traders to mind. Meanwhile, this dip seems to have soiled traders’ sentiments for the week.
