    Bitcoin price dips below $38K, with bullish traders eyeing a new higher low next

    Abstract:The hunt to establish firm support higher up the $30,000 channel continues amid confidence that the worst of the longer-term retracement is already over.

      The hunt to establish firm support higher up the $30,000 channel continues amid confidence that the worst of the longer-term retracement is already over.

      Bitcoin (BTC) briefly fell below $38,000 on Tuesday as signs of a retracement from range highs continued to flow in.

      Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView showed BTC/USD tapping $37,960 on Bitstamp before rebounding.

      Still trading 3.7% lower on the day, the pair had come off local highs above $42,500 on the weekend amid concerns over regulatory moves from the United States this week.

      As Cointelegraph reported, analysts were already hoping that a correction would take Bitcoin several thousand dollars lower in order to create a pattern of higher lows, from which it could continue its upside.

      The target zone, lying around $36,000, was now key to hold in order to prevent what trader Pentoshi called “worst case scenarios.”

      “Deviations wrecking those people who dont plan for them,” he warned Twitter followers alongside a chart showing key price levels.

      “Ill bid on range high reclaim OR in the grey box for a HL. If we fall below the mid range and start closing below then you need to plan for some worst case scenarios. These are my only two triggers for a long (at the moment).”

      Exchange levels differed only slightly from that hypothesis on Tuesday, with major support lingering at $35,000 on BINANCE.

      Resistance was in place at $41,000, with the range high of $42,500 now of major interest among sellers.

      Zooming out, meanwhile, fellow trader and analyst Rekt Capital has found sense in longer-term price action, potentially reinforcing $29,000 as a floor.

      On a yearly timeframe within four-year cycles, $29,000 has provided support in 2021, placing post-halving behavior firmly in historical context.

      Others had also taken heart from Bitcoins July turnaround and monthly close, among them stock-to-flow price model creator PlanB.

    Bitcoin Global Legalization: A survey of countries that accept and reject Bitcoin.

    Since the inception of Bitcoin in 2009 by the unknown founder popularly known as Satoshi Nakamoto, the march for its legalization as well as other cryptocurrencies had continued till this point. While some countries had officially legalized Bitcoin and accepts it as a legal tender, others rather reject and ban it. The rest tend to maintain a neutral approach of tolerating it without either banning nor legalizing it. The major reason for this has been that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies lacks regulation and centralization and hence, beyond the control of the government. However, there is a general vision that given the popularity of Bitcoin itself and other cryptocurrencies, more countries will in no distant time give an official approval and legalization of Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies.
