He said: “In the crypto currency space, the crypto king isn’t showing much strength as well and it is very much clear that we are likely to see more downward moves for the Bitcoin today.
“The primary reason for this is that the price has rejected the 200-day SMA on the daily frame, and it has failed to stay above the 40K price level.”
