BTC Price keeps falling and the liquidation is coming to an end
Rainbow Bitcoin Weekly 21.12.21
Throughout December, prices in the crypto world have been relatively sluggish. Last week, the entire Chinese crypto industry is on the verge of delisting, which undoubtedly increases people’s panic, and the market is also affected a lot. Last week, the Chinese head exchange liquidation is coming close to the end. The global economy is sluggish and inflationary due to the continued outbreak of the epidemic. The global commodity market, including the crypto market, is in a downturn. The K-line of Bitcoin continues to be in a declining channel, and the high point ahead continues to move downward, allowing the downward channel to continue to expand. At the four-hour level, the price is also at the standard downward trend suppression line. Under normal market conditions, the $48,500 trend suppression above is worth attention. However, the indicators in the attached drawings reflect the shrinkage of short positions. In summary, it is difficult to open an upward channel in the absence of extreme market conditions. The recent market continues to be dominated by shocks. The above content does not constitute investment advice and is for reference only.
