Furthermore, Bitcoin is trading down just more than 1 percent at its current price of $7,170. And this marks a notable retrace from its latest highs of $7,600. This was set at the peak of yesterday’s rally.
The rally let BTC post more than $1,000 worth of gains from its current lows. Also, it is establishing to be slightly weak because of the lack of sustained momentum. However, this is still not the reason for bullish traders and analysts to think the other way.
