- Bitcoin traders are now at their most bearish level, following the decline in BTC to $56.9k.
- The entire market is down by over 2%, without liquidation reaching $223 million within the last 24 hours.
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.
Bitcoin sentiments turn bearish
Santiment, a crypto on-chain and social metrics platform, revealed that the decline in BTC down to $56.9k has turned traders’ perception of the crypto for the week back into the negative territory. The social metric from Santiment reveals that traders are at their most bearish level in seven weeks.
Cryptos kick off the week in dip
At the time of writing, BTC was trading at $57,260, with a total market capitalization of $1.08 trillion. It is worth noting that BTC is not the only cryptocurrency on the 24hrs red list.
The overall crypto market is currently down by 2.38% to $2.58 trillion within the last 24 hours. Ether (ETH), Binance Coin (BNB), Cardano (ADA), Ripple (XRP), and Polkadot (DOT) were all down by at least 2% in the 24hrs timeframe. At the time, Solana (SOL) was trading at $217, a 2.14% increase.
