What Changed in Crypto Markets While You Were Sleeping — May 13
BeInCrypto presents our daily morning roundup of crypto news and market changes that you might have missed while you were asleep.
BTC decreased considerably yesterday, falling from a high of $58,000 all the way to a low of $48,600. The decrease continued in the early hours of the morning until a low of $46,000 was reached. The $48,000 support area has been in place since the beginning of March 2021.
However, BTC has rebounded to a high of $51,247 and is in the process of creating a bullish hammer candlestick.
Despite the drop, technical indicators can still be considered bullish. Even though the RSI has crossed below 50, the MACD is still positive. If it were to cross into negative territory, it would be the first time it has done so since October 2020.
