Bitcoin Holds at $8,400 as Downside Thrust Persists Across Global Capital Markets

It was one Sunday too much to ask after all, as the Bitcoin bulls were unable to maintain a consecutive weekend of strong price rallies, with Bitcoin price just managing to hold at around USD 8,415 (7:15 am UTC, CoinDesk) as it threatens to test the current support level at USD 8,360.

However, developments in other capital and asset markets around the world suggest that Bitcoin is merely experiencing a worldwide ripple effect, as the day opens with a negative outlook in oil and precious metals as the US-China trade war intensifies. Market analyst Holder Zschaepitz points out how most indices in the Asia and Pacific posted minor losses as speculators price in a 50% chance of a US Federal Reserve interest rate cut by July.

In the past 24, hours, after a surge on a strong weekend, Bitcoin had in fact managed to stay mostly above USD 8,700 and created a high at USD 8,830, but just two hours ago in midday Asian markets, a tumble ensued from USD 8,688 to its current levels as profit taking and selling off took charge.

It has not typically been the pattern in the past few weeks, although Central Europe waking up could be one reason, with businesses and institutional traders taking the time to book in orders for the first trading day of the month.

Downside thrust will likely persist for the remainder of that time zone, however, where Bitcoin goes from here is anyone’s guess, even if most bulls on social media at least will not have their faith shaken so easily. Crypto influencer Anthony Pompliano of the Off the Chain podcast at least is promising to “drop the HEAT” in a letter to investors tomorrow and it smacks of bullish sentiment.
