It had to happen, and it did. As reported by yesterday, a slip of Bitcoin price happened within hours of registering a 2019 high, and in the 24 hours that followed, price continued to shed almost all the gains made in the past week.

After threatening to fall back even below the USD 10,000 mark that Bitcoin bulls had fought long to break above, with a week’s low of USD 10,314 touched just nine hours ago at 10:00 pm UTC, Bitcoin found renewed strength in the Asian market, recovering above USD 11,000 where it now trades at USD 11,165 (7:05 am UTC, CoinDesk).

It is still a 12.5% decline in a day, however, so the bulls will feel like they’re being battered, but the good news, if cycles are to be believed, is that the weekend is almost upon us and that is when bulls have been the strongest for the past few months.

Permabulls like Anthony Pompliano of course points out that this is an excellent opportunity to buy for those who missed out at four-digit USD valuations, since “short term price movements don’t change the underlying fundamentals”.

Permabears like anti-Bitcoin gold trader Peter Schiff, however, who happily pointed out that the price of gold would never drop 25% in under a day. He of course took the chance to repeat his familiar mantra that Bitcoin was absolutely unlike his favored precious metal.

Most analysts can objectively agree anyway that even beyond fundamentals, the technical trend is still highly positive, with the 192-day stretch sure to elongate, with anyone who bought Bitcoin in the last 521 days before the last week, sure to be in profit. is committed to unbiased news and upholding journalistic codes of ethics.
