Arslan Butt • 1 min read
Bitcoin is trading bearish against the US dollar on Wednesday, as a fresh selloff in the crypto market pressurizes the pair once again. BTC/USD is presently trading at 7,980, having placed an intraday low of 7,903 during the European session.
This repeated dip below the $8,000 level by BTC/USD is occurring as the traders braces for the expiry of the BTC futures contract on CME on Friday. Ahead of contract expiry, the trading volumes have also declined on a month-on-month basis from $US5.9 billion USD in August to $US4.82 billion in September.
