Bitcoin Is Struggling To Hold Its 200-Day MA

Bitcoin has been trading at sideways price action for most of December, struggling to stay above the 200-day moving average.

After a strong October and an early November of new all-time highs, Bitcoin has encountered a blocking road in December, having lost 13.60% since the beginning of the month. This reality stands in stark contrast to a widespread belief that Bitcoin’s price would hit $100,000 by the end of the year.

At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading at around $47,500 after having closed below its 200-day moving average on Tuesday.
