BITCOIN could be reaching the bottom of its bear run as experts speculate the cryptocurrency could fall in the $6,600-$6,000 range over the weekend, it has been reported
The cryptocurrency hit a 50-day low on March 30, reaching $6,630.
Writing on Coindesk, Bitcoin analyst Omkar Godbole said the digital currency tends to reverse every time the relative strength index drops to or below 30.00.
He also speculated that Bitcoin will fall in the $6,600-$6,000 range over the weekend.
He said: “BTC tends to reverse course every time the relative strength index (RSI) drops to or below 30.00, according to historical data… As of writing, the relative strength index is close to that mark, at 32.00.”
The report follows a recent tweet from Digital Currency Group Founder Barry Silbert where he indicated part of the renewed bear cycle come from a sell-off related tax season.
Analysts fully expect the market to stabilise during the mid-April US tax deadline, as investors scramble to secure cash to pay capital gains tax.
Bitcoin has been known before to bounce back from bearish ends before, and there is no reason to think it won’t do the same again.
The price of Bitcoin at the time of writing is $6,995.87.

Following the success of Bitcoin hundreds of new cryptocurrencies have been issued over the past 12 months.

In December 2017 Bitcoin was worth $19,000 (£13,420).
However, in January its value plummeted to as low as nearly $6,000 (£4,240).
All the major cryptocurrencies have taken a battering this week, declining by nearly $100billion across seven days.
The average price for most major currencies, including Ethereal, Ripple and Bitcoin Cash, fell by more than 13 percent in the last few days of March.

While many investors are scared this could be the end of bitcoin’s meteoric rise, evidenced in the reduced volumes on Binance, Bitfinex and Bithump, volumes on futures markets are intensifying.
