Despite the significant fall in price, the technical indicator shows that it is hovering above the 50-level. This means that the bears have still some scope to explore. The bitcoin price against the US Dollar may see a continued downtrend if the price falls below the 21-day moving average.

At press time, the BTC price is hovering around US$54,724.62 with a 24-hour fall of around -7.02%. If the selling pressure continues to overpower buying pressure, the next support levels are US$52,000, US$50,000, and US$48,000.
