    Daily death cross approaches as Bitcoin loses momentum above $8,000

    Bitcoin is edging towards an exponential moving average death cross on the daily chart, which would almost certainly signal an extended correction to the downside.

For the death cross to come into fruition price would need to stay between $7,800 and $8,600 for the next week, although aThe post Daily death cross approaches as Bitcoin loses momentum above $8,000 appeared first on Coin Rivet.

    Despite being battered and bruised over the past month, Bitcoin has recovered from last week's $7,800 low with a 3.81% 24-hour rally to test $8,600.

Its nature as a decentralised asset has seen retail investors flock to Bitcoin in recent years, although this, coupled with a lack of liquidity, has increased levels of volatility.
