“Bitcoin recently experienced a bearish move, falling from the 27,300 level to a low of 25,900. The downward momentum shows no signs of stopping and appears to be headed for another major support level at 25,900, which is in line with the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement,” said Sathvik Vishwanath, Co-Founder & CEO of Unocoin.

“It is very important to closely monitor the 25,900 level. Any failure to break below this level could catalyze a bullish reversal and potentially push the price of Bitcoin towards the resistance levels of 26,700 and further to 27,400,” Sathvik said.
