Bitcoin Drops Below $30k Due to the 8.6% Inflation Report, Could Go Lower
Concerning value, the number one digital asset of Bitcoin has been hit hard by the news that the US inflation has hit 8.6%: its highest in 40 years. Consequently, Bitcoin has lost the crucial $30k support level and has set a local low of $29,011.
Furthermore, popular Bitcoin and crypto analyst, MagicPoopCannon, has forecasted possible pain ahead for BTC. According to his analysis, Bitcoin will likely bottom somewhere between $13,500 and $21,000.
A glance at the daily BTC/USDT chart below reveals that Bitcoin is still in bear territory, trading below the 50-day (white), 100-day (yellow), and 200-day (green) moving averages. Additionally, the daily trade volume hints at continual selling, with the MACD’s histogram confirming weak buying.
Also, from the chart, the daily MFI and RSI are in the neutral territory of 38 and 42, respectively. This, in turn, hints at the possibility of Bitcoin’s price going either way. BTC could plummet to the $28k support level or even the local low of $26,700. On the flip side, Bitcoin could attempt to tap the 50-day moving average at around the $32k price area.
