Bitcoin Slips Below Crucial $67,000 Level, Crypto Market Sees Bearish Turn in Last 24 Hours

The last 24 hours brought reductions in the prices of majority cryptocurrencies as the crypto market took what experts are calling a ‘bearish turn’. Bitcoin on Tuesday, April 2 showed a loss of 1.24 percent. With this, the value of the asset receded to $66,102 (roughly Rs. 55.1 lakh). Market analysts had been calling $67,000 (roughly Rs. 55.8 lakh) the crucial price point for BTC, beyond which the asset was expected to rise easily but now that BTC has dropped below this value, analysts fear BTC could tumble further below.

“In the last 24 hours, the market took a bearish turn. Bitcoin is currently trading below the 20 EMA D, indicating bearish sentiment. Attention will be on BTC ETF inflows and US macroeconomic announcements in the coming days,” the CoinDCX Research team told Gadgets360 commenting on the market situation.

Ether reflected a price dip of 3.71 percent on Tuesday. Its current trading value stands on the mark of $3,270 (roughly Rs. 2.72 lakh). In the last 24 hours, the value of ETH has reduced by $125 (roughly Rs. 10,420).

“ETH after making the recent high of $4,093 (roughly Rs. 3.41 lakh), witnessed a sharp correction and the prices fell almost by 25 percent. Traders remain immersed in speculation regarding the potential approval of a spot Ether ETF in May,” the ZebPay trade desk told Gadgets360.

Most cryptocurrencies are trading in losses on Tuesday alongside BTC and ETH. These include Binance Coin, Solana, Ripple, Dogecoin, Cardano, Avalanche, and Shiba Inu.

Other loss-making altcoins, as of Tuesday, include Polkadot, Tron, Chainlink, Polygon, Litecoin, Uniswap, and Near Protocol.

As a result of the market performance in the last 24 hours, the crypto market has observed total liquidations of over $490 million (roughly Rs. 4,084 crore), including BTC’s $134.74 million (roughly Rs. 1,123 crore),” the CoinSwitch Markets Desk told Gadgets360.
