After a bearish mode for top currencies last week, cryptos need to overpower week’s pivot zones to prevent another red week.
BTC/USD lost 13.7% during the week ending 5 December. BTC ended the week hovering at $49,474, following a 2.29% dip over the previous week. Unpredictable sessions early on the week had Bitcoin rising to $59,174 on Tuesday before retracing. Failure to overcome the initial crucial resistance at $60,023 saw BTC tumbling to an intraweek low of $41,634 on Saturday.
The crash saw BTC breaching week’s critical support levels. Moreover, the extended decline also had BTC falling beneath 23.6% Fibonacci of $53,628 and 38.2% Fibonacci of $44,144. The crypto secured support floor over the weekend. That way, it surged back through 38.2% Fibonacci and 3rd crucial support area at $44,987, ending the week near $49,000.
