The bitcoin price dropped as far as $ 3,801 on Monday after an attempted breakout failed to thrust the flagship cryptocurrency back across the $ 4,500 level.
CCN technical analyst Yashu Gola reported yesterday that BTC/USD was flirting with a breakout but stressed that a price floor would not be confirmed until the index experienced a sustained consolidation period above $ 4,500.
Unfortunately, that bounce did not occur, and this afternoon the bitcoin price fell below $ 4,000, which triggered further selling all the way down to $ 3,801 on Coinbase — its lowest point since Nov. 28. As of the time of writing, BTC/USD was holding at $ 3,825.
