Bitcoin Price Forecast – BTC/USD Ascending Triangle in Play, Brace for a Breakout!

The BTC/USD crypto pair failed to extend its previous day long bullish rally and dropped $6K around well below $53,600 as the crypto market lost $200 Billion in the past 24 hours. It has failed to break the $60,000 barrier, and was climbing high in the past few days. The cryptocurrency leader hit its three-week highest level at $59,600 yesterday. But the gains were short-lived as BTC started to lose value fast in the following hours. As a result, the primary crypto dropped by more than $6,000 to an intraday low of just below $53,600.

In addition to BTC, the alternative coins were performing more amazingly than their leader in the past few weeks. However, most of them followed the bearish bias and dropped yesterday as well. Binance Coin (-5.5%), Ripple (-10%), Cardano (-7.5%), Polkadot (-12%), Bitcoin Cash (-12%), Litecoin (-12%), and Chainlink (-12%) all faced losses.

The drop in values could be attributed to the recent declines in the global stocks like S&P 500 SPX, -1.04%, Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, -0.10%, and the Nasdaq Composite Index. Apart from this, the losses were further bolstered by the stronger U.S. dollar. The prevalent bullish bias around the U.S. dollar was mainly sponsored by the downbeat market sentiment, which tends to undermine safe-haven assets like the U.S. dollar. The BTC/USD pair price is trading well below the 55,624.3 level and consolidating in the range between 54,550.4 and 56,384.2, at the time of writing.Across the ocean, the crypto market cap also declined by about $200 billion at one point after yesterday’s record above $2.5T. This, in turn, becomes another key factor that puts downside pressure on the BTC/USD crypto pair. Meanwhile, the losses in cryptocurrencies could also be attributed to the recent drops in global stocks. It is worth recalling that the Dow Jones Industrial Average ended its previous five-session winning steak on Monday, falling late in the session after pushing above the 35,000 milestones. The broader market came under pressure as high-profile Big Tech shares dropped.
