Stock Markets Group – bitcoin exchange Rate will decline, as investors cut positions ahead of the weekend. In the course of the day, the cryptocurrency has risen above 11 thousand dollars, but buyers failed to hold the level.
At the moment the price of bitcoin continues to fall. Experts attribute the decline in prices with the new risks which may affect the dynamics of the asset in the next week.
Many have noted a sharp decline in trading volumes and transactions on bitcoin that shows a decline in investor interest in the cryptocurrency.
However, bill Wagner, one of the founders of the investment Fund “Step&Run” noted in his commentary Stock Markets Group, what to speak of the fall in global demand for cryptocurrency yet.
“The period when the risk of falling Bitcoin prices were high has passed, but the market still have those players who have not used this chance to shop. They are out of the market and do not open new positions. Many speculators after the new year went to other altcoins forever, which also has reduced activity in bitcoin and capitalization most popular cryptocurrencies”
“However, I would not hurry to talk about a return to the previous sales. Even if today the cryptocurrency will not find substantial support, she can stay above the psychological level of 10 thousand dollars, as in today bitcoin has a large capital and it is still the first by market capitalization among cryptocurrencies”
The recent fall in the asset to $6 000 was due to several factors:
– The desire of the Chinese authorities to take control of the cryptocurrency market
– Lack of understanding from the regulators as to prevent the schemes of money laundering
Technical problems that caused difficulties in the network blockchain, and therefore alienated potential investors from bitcoin as a tool of earnings
– High risk of fraud schemes and as a result of loss of investors ‘ funds
Today the market has changed, so some of the risks faded into the background.
However, those trading cryptocurrencies noted that the bitcoin exchange rate became more predictable and volatility is much reduced, which is a sign of the formation of stable market conditions.
