Bitcoin is facing another significant correction, threatening a breakdown of $30,000.  However, market data shows that today’s’ BTC dip could mark the local bottom before bull action commences again. 

Bitcoin Whales Buying the Dip 

Bitcoin’s cooldown continues as the leading cryptocurrency dropped 11.8% today, falling to lows of $31,000.

Ethereum’s push to all-time highs and multi-trillion dollar stimulus hopes from Biden administration vigoured bullish action in Bitcoin at the beginning of the week, as BTC price moved above $37,800 Monday.

But, bulls seem to have today succumbed to exhaustion.

Ethereum plunged simultaneously with Bitcoin, losing 13.8% from the opening price at $1,375 to lows of $1,180.
