Technical analysis



The largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization had a slow weekend of consolidation after the 11 June price drop. While many analysts were suggesting a bull run, Bitcoin dropped in price yet again, this time below $9,000. The move reached $8,900 before stabilizing between $9,980 and $9,120 level.

Bitcoin’s volume seems to be following a pattern of decreasing its volume from day to day until a spike happens, which brings its volume up.
