Bitcoin Remains Fragile, What’s The Next Major Support Area?
Bitcoin has shed close to 20% of its market value over the last week. King coin underwent six consecutive weeks of bearish pressure. The coin has retested levels that it touched in August, last year.
Price had tried to briefly recover as BTC tried pushing the $32,000 price level over the last 48 hours. Ever since Bitcoin breached the $37,000 level, it has been a free fall for the asset. Bitcoin’s all-time high was $68,000 which it secured in November 2021.
The $37,000 price mark had acted as a support level for multiple months. The continued long liquidation spree has made Bitcoin revisit the $30,000 price mark.
An upside seems unlikely considering sellers have taken hold of the market at the time of writing. Continued downslide will cause BTC to tumble below $30,000.

Bitcoin had been forming a bearish flag over the past couple of months. This was a signal that BTC was about to go on a downward price action.

Chances of rebound cannot be ruled out but the bearish pressure seems too intense at the moment.
