Bitcoin Briefly Plummets Below $42K
On Monday morning, Bitcoin briefly traded below $42,000 as the broader cryptocurrency market took a negative turn a few days after the United States Securities and Exchange Commission approved several spot Bitcoin ETFs, which began trading last Thursday.
According to CoinGecko’s data, BTC found support at $41,754 earlier today, and bulls have managed to push the token to $42,486 as of this writing. Despite the recovery, Bitcoin is down 1.9% over the last 24 hours and 5.8% in the past seven days.
The coin almost touched $49,000 on Wednesday when the SEC announced it had given the green light to spot Bitcoin ETFs. However, the bullish trend was short-lived as the traders appeared to book profits following the much-anticipated announcement.
As mentioned earlier, the broader cryptocurrency market has also witnessed a pullback. Over the weekend, the total market capitalization dropped to $1.71 trillion from $1.92 trillion on January 11th, when ETFs started trading. Moreover, Bitcoin’s dominance has fallen to 47.7% from 49.8% on January 11th. Meanwhile, CoinGlass’ data shows that Bitcoin’s open interest has declined to $18.38 billion from $20.06 billion within five days.
