Today Bitcoin price pulled off a minor relief rally, but will the king of cryptocurrencies maintain momentum as volume fades?

Bitcoin Price Market Overview

This week has been a tough one for cryptocurrencies as the total market capitalization dropped to $228 billion, which is roughly 24% down from the July 27 high of $300 billion and significantly removed from the $830 billion market cap of December 2017.

Fortunately, BTC 00 did find sellers as it bounced off $6,132 and has since begun the upward trek to climb over $6,500.

Bitcoin broke below the 50-week MA, coming within $121 of the $6k support and falling below the ascending trendline and the 55 EMA. This is the third time BTC has descended near $6,100 so buyers are likely to show up around this region.

Daily Chart

4-Hour Chart

Today’s corrective rally from $6,132 to $6,573 was sustained by high volume and managed to bring BTC closer to trading above the 20-MA but the 4-hour chart shows the Stoch approaching oversold regions and the RSI nears bullish territory. Volume has begun to taper off, suggesting buyers are losing steam and the pattern of BTC being rejected at the moving averages on the 4-hour chart remains.
