Bitcoin price takes a downward directional stride below $10,000. This steep fall has widely affected the rest of the crypto market as well and the major coins seem to plunge by a notable number. BTC price breaks major support around $10,000 and halts around $9,400, giving new weekly low. Now, $9300 and $9000 serve as the major support, making room for BTC to fall even further.
Well, this is not a trend but the volatility that adds to dull scenario.
But Bitcoin seems to have been broken by a substantial price this time. It is also mentioned by Peter Schiff in one of his tweets stating that this investment avenue may not serve as a safe and return giving investment refuge.
Bitcoin has again failed the safe haven test. On Friday, as escalating trade tensions sent global stock markets plunging, investors sought refuge in monetary safe havens. The Japanese yen, Swiss franc, and especially gold all moved higher. Yet Bitcoin plunged by more than stocks!

Against this the major investment avenues, Gold and Stocks have maintained their marginality.
The 1-day gold price movement looks considerably better than Bitcoin in current paradigm, but BTC price has always remained immortal to its lovers and loyalists.

This shows downward motion in the previous year and attained price marks thereupon in comparison to this year’s plunging figures.
But this becomes a matter of concern for the Bitcoin loyalists and whales to know that the current trading price is not supported by any of the short-term moving averages. And if the coin falls even further, BTC will find a company near 100-day EMA or if even lower than 200-day EMA.
The MACD and RSI rightly point out the bearish coverage below zero in the negative axis and below 30 respectively.
