Bitcoin Price Hits 2018 Low

As Bitcoin (BTC) price has flatlined as of late, one could say that it was a welcome sight to have some action and volume. The bad news, however, for those long BTC price was that $6,000 support finally gave.

Bitcoin price hit as low as $5,550 USD on Bitstamp amid ongoing volatility. This is the lowest price since October 2017 and a record low for 2018.

The drop-off may have been expected, however. Bitcoinist recently reported on the waning interest from traders amid record low futures volume and money velocity.

But despite a string of recent positive news for Bitcoin such as forthcoming on-ramps for Wall Street and increasing profits for businesses, the Bear market seems to be tightening its grips.

Capitulation?

Meanwhile, notable industry figures such as cryptocurrency investor Barry Silbert called the record drop in price “capitulation.” Others also pointed out how the current record low RSI index for BTC/USD charts has historically been a signal for an upswing.

Admittedly, several factors that could potentially reverse the bearish momentum before the end of the year are still in place. However, all eyes will now be on BTC price 00 in the meantime as the boring flatline period appears to be over.
