Bitcoin’s highly-volatile days continued with wild moves of almost $1,000 that took it from $23,300 to $22,400 and vice versa. Most large-cap altcoins have remained relatively calm, with Ethereum trading mostly around $650. Binance Coin, though, has increased by 5% and finally trading above $30.
Bitcoin’s Price Sideways Action
As reported recently, bitcoin initiated a massive bull-run following consolidating around $19,000 for a few days that resulted in breaking into uncharted territory above $20,000.
The primary cryptocurrency doubled-down on its bullish week and continued towards a new all-time high of nearly $24,000 on Thursday.
The high fluctuations continued in the past 24 hours as well. BTC traded around $23,300 before the bears took control and drove it down to an intraday low of beneath $22,400.
However, bitcoin refused to stay there and recovered all losses in the following hours. Nevertheless, the asset has slumped slightly since then and currently trades below $23,000.
From a technical perspective, BTC’s next resistance lines are situated at round psychological levels – $23,000, $24,000, and $25,000. In contrast, the support lines at $22,250, $21,400, and $20,700 could assist in case of a price breakdown.
