Buyers keen at $53,000

Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView followed a quiet 24 hours for BTC/USD after Friday’s $6,000 red candle.

Although quiet into Sunday, the pair nonetheless dipped below a major zone of support on weekly timeframes, opening up the potential for its lowest end-of-week levels since late September.

For trader and analyst Rekt Capital, $55,800 should be reclaimed to reverse this, something which could still “easily” occur.

Such price action was still not enough to deter bulls, with large-volume entities from businesses to nation states “buying the dip.”

On Sunday, Alex Mashinsky, founder and CEO of crypto lending platform Celsius, confirmed that he had added to both his Bitcoin and Ether (ETH) allocations. 

“I bought almost $10m worth of BTC and ETH at the current levels to add to my positions,” he revealed to Twitter followers.

No gains to be had this weekend

There was thus little reprieve from Friday’s cross-market sell-off amid ongoing uncertainty over the latest Coronavirus strain.

As Cointelegraph reported, this inflicted immediate cold feet on both crypto and traditional market sentiment, with the Crypto Fear & Greed Index returning to “extreme fear” territory.
