Bitcoin tests high $8Ks support

Data from Coin360 shows BTC/USD reembracing the $8,000 zone after spending much of Sunday evening higher, reaching around $9,100

At press time, the pair had just said a new three-day low of $8,695, subsequently bouncing slightly higher towards $8,800. Bitcoin has languished around that price since Nov. 8, having previously fallen from a range between $9,000 and $9,500.

Despite the drop, however, analysts appeared neither surprised nor bearish about the overall trend. 

In a Twitter update on Monday, the popular account known as Crypto Bull highlighted the fact that a dip to current levels represented previous resistance now acting as support. 

“Just testing that support again,” he told followers, referencing Bitcoin’s dramatic run-up from $7,400 to over $10,500 from Oct. 26. 

Others, such as regular Cointelegraph contributor Michaël van de Poppe, had previously said a breakout from range-bound trading between $9,000 and $9,500 was long overdue

As Cointelegraph reported, attention should now focus on the Moving Average Divergence Convergence, or MACD indicator, which could potentially point the way to a bullish move in the coming several weeks. 

Altcoins stationery as BTC wavers

Altcoins meanwhile broadly followed Bitcoin’s modest price drop on Monday, with most major tokens seeing losses of around 1%.

Ether (ETH), the largest altcoin by market cap, fell by 0.6% to just under $186.

The overall cryptocurrency market cap was $240.9 billion at press time, with Bitcoin’s share totaling 66.1%.
