There had been slightly more bullish conditions in the cryptocurrency market recently.

Bitcoin had reached a support level at $3300 and continued to respect this support level for around one week. Although there were drops below, each drop was followed up with a rise back above the level.

However, yesterday price action dropped below the support level and closed below this point. The drop below has resulted in price forming a new 2018 low around $3210.

Today’s candle is so far forming a Doji. A Doji candle is a candle where the open and close are around the same point and typically reflects uncertainty from the side of traders.

Although the outlook is far more bearish after the price has dropped below support, traders may be unwilling to sharply sell-off from this point as support is likely expected around $3000.

With price action currently trading near 2018 lows, a drop to sub-$3k levels has become a greater possibility.
