Bitcoin over the weekend was seen trading below its critical price support as broader market weakness continues. Traders’ confidence in the asset has remained quite low considering the selling pressure in the market.
The prices have currently plummeted owing to the news of the Federal Reserve hiking its interest rates. Bitcoin has also displayed profit booking on charts. This could be the reason why prices are falling further. If the asset fails to remain above the $38,000 price level, a short-term downslide could occur.
Bitcoin is currently trading in bearish sentiment, however, charts have something else to say. Many bullish divergences were spotted on charts in different time frames.
Bullish divergences amount to bullish sentiments. This means that over the long run Bitcoin can recover and trade above immediate resistances.
