Here are quick cryptocurrency updates for the previous week to help keep you updated with the happenings in the sector.
Last Monday, we saw how bitcoin (BTC) went as low as $10,060. The rate recovered somewhat in the run-up to Tuesday, but the decline continued after that. On Tuesday evening the price of bitcoin fell through the psychological limit of $ 10,000.
Bitcoin traded around $ 10,000 both Wednesday and Thursday; then above, then below. On Friday, the most dominant cryptocurrency rose again. For example, the resistance was broken at $ 10,400 and it seemed that the resistance at $ 10,500 would also be broken. However, the price fell again, just below $ 10,400.
On weekends bitcoin traded mainly horizontal or sideways, leading to a so-called breakout. The pattern was visible Monday. On Monday, halfway through the day, bitcoin broke down and the rate fell rapidly from $ 10,300 to $ 10,000. Support was eventually found just above $ 10,000.
