Recovery not strong enough?
The recovery recorded in the early hours of Monday morning is welcome. However, it is debatable whether this recovery will take time. This is because bears have had a stronger market position since then compared to bulls, making the market prone to sudden declines.
Looking at the indicators for Bitcoin, which is the driver of the market, it continues to trade below the 50-day moving average despite the recovery. It remains a retailer market with such indicators, especially given where the next level of support for digital assets is.
For BTC, adequate support is present only at the level of $ 28,108. This means that any decline will now lead to the collapse of digital assets through weekly gains and return to pre-weekend levels. It also doesn’t help that the indicators indicate sales from all angles.
In order to maintain the current recovery trend, there will need to be a large inflow of funds to the market. Even at oversold levels, various cryptocurrencies remain prone to further declines, unless customers cannot increase their activity enough to halt the declining trend.
