Bitcoin price fell on Sunday, wiping out 8.5% to 10,452 USD. The free fall of the cryptocurrency started on Wednesday after it climbed to 13,102 USD. Since then the Bitcoin lost more than 20% for just a few days and returned in the mid-10,000 USD, searching for support and breaking all the key levels.

Still, despite the minor correction, the bitcoin price is up more than 210% year-to-date as one of the best-performing assets in the global market.

Bitcoin price

For the BTC price outlook over the next fortnight, Sunday’s close is pivotal, as the daily chart displays a symmetrical triangle formation. Over the last 2-weeks, the coin has travelled within the triangle, mostly along the slope of the trendline support while the upside attempts on two occasions faced rejection at the downward sloping trendline resistance. Some analysts consider that if the Bitcoin price fails to recover beyond the mid-10,000 USD region, a pullback to the 9,000 USD region is likely.

However, Bitcoin has a short-term as well as a medium-term bullish outlook. The coin is likely to give huge returns if the holding remains until the end of this year. The marketers are still hopeful that the price momentum will soon change its course. The traders once again draw profits.

The daily trading volume of the Bitcoin fell to 22.898 billion USD.
