Commenting on today’s fall, Bitcoin.com stated in a report, “Ultimately, market uncertainty began once the resistance level on the 14-day relative strength index (RSI) of 62.40 was hit earlier this week, with bullish momentum running out of steam soon after. Although still not clear, it is likely that we could see the floor of $21,800 hit, however with some bulls still in the market, we may not see this support broken this weekend. In addition to bitcoin, Ethereum (ETH) was also in the red, as prices moved away from recent highs to start the weekend. Despite the drop, ETH has managed to stay above $1,500, with prices still up by over 30% in the last seven days.”
