BTC price lost its all-time high of $18,000 as FTX fiascoes continued to affect its price
The price continues to look bearish with the current state of the market as things look uncertain for most traders and investors.
BTC price bounces from a low of $15,500 on the daily time frame as the price recovers the 50 EMA
The past few days for Bitcoin (BTC) have been rosy, with the price rising from a low of $15,500 to a high of $16,500, with altcoins enjoying a relief bounce in the crypto market. Despite the Bitcoin (BTC) price relief, the price is still trading below its previous all-time high of $18,000, which is a bit of a problem considering this region now serves as resistance for a major rally. The ripple effect of the FTX saga and other big investors has left the market paralyzed as the market has yet to make a major move, leading to a lot of fear as to where the market could go next.
