Bitcoin recently experienced a sharp decline after reaching an all-time high in March, driven by factors such as reduced demand, increased miner selling, and bearish market sentiment.

Bitcoin’s journey to its peak in March was impressive, soaring to an astonishing $73,000. However, it soon took a sharp downturn, plummeting to a range between $57,000 and $62,955. Substantial liquidation events exacerbated this decline, adding downward pressure.

Several factors contributed to this downward trend, including reduced demand, increased miner selling, bearish market sentiment, and unfavorable technical indicators. Speculation arises about whether the current bull cycle has peaked and what the future holds for Bitcoin.

Why Bitcoin is Dipping

There has been a notable decrease in demand from long-term holders and large investors, impacting the market. Bitcoin miners have increased their selling activity to cover costs or capitalize on prices before further declines, adding to selling pressure.

Market sentiment, influenced by hawkish fiscal policies and macroeconomic factors, contributes to a bearish outlook. Unfavorable technical indicators, such as the loss of crucial support levels and a bearish trend in the relative strength index (RSI), add to negative sentiment.

Historically, a significant retracement of up to 50% from the peak is expected, potentially dropping Bitcoin to the mid $30,000 range in the current cycle.
