BTC/USD

Bitcoin is trading at $22,740, within a narrow range as the bulls and bears are in a tug-of-war. We expect that the BTC price could either break above $23,000 or fall below $22,000 soon. Bitcoin surpassed the moving averages but was unable to break through the barrier at $23,000 and started to move downward. The trading volume for  Bitcoin decreased slightly last week, suggesting that the market is in a consolidation period. Currently, the trading volume of Bitcoin is around $24 billion and the market cap is at $440 billion.
