A 2-day recovery of the BTC slowed down on Friday. The major crypto is consolidating at $19,600.
It’s higher than strategic support levels of $18,000-$19,000, which were able to survive again. However, it’s lower than the resistance area at $21,500, which may lead the way to $22,000 where the asset may start a proper growth.
Overall, the situation hasn’t changed much technically.
A positive moment here is that the major crypto seems to stop following American stock indices. In mid-September, the correlation between S&P 500/NASDAQ and the BTC was pretty strong. However, right now it weakened. The reason for this might be strong positions of whales in the crypto market.
The capitalisation of the crypto market is estimated at $913,29 billion.
