Bitcoin [BTC]’s fluctuations below the $4,000 margin have been the talk of the town for quite some time now, with the world’s largest cryptocurrency suffering one of its worst crunches in over a year. Bitcoin’s rapid fall has also been reflected by the other cryptocurrencies as shown by multiple support breaks and market cap depreciation.

The Parabolic SAR has been predominantly bearish as indicated by the markers staying above the price candles. At the time of writing, Bitcoin was going through a slight bullish spike indicated by the markers below the candles.

The Relative Strength Index graph has stayed closer to the overbought zone which shows that the buying pressure is more than the selling pressure.

The Chaikin Money Flow indicator has followed an eerily similar pattern to that of the RSI, staying above the zero line. The hold above the axis means that the money coming into the market is more than the outflow.

1-day

The Awesome Oscillator shows a gradual pickup of the market momentum of the after a visible lull.

Conclusion

The above-mentioned indicators show the prowess of the bear with the resistance being lowered from an earlier high around $6,000. The price hikes look to be just sporadic with consistent growth seemingly missing from the charts.
