2/2 Bitcoin Chart 2/2


Investing.com - Bitcoin spent yesterday rallying, managing to score a high of $40,365 in the evening, but the cryptocurrency was then once again sent back below the key $40,000 mark.

The rise in the US stock markets yesterday, and in particular the Nasdaq, which ended the day up by more than 3%, showed an appetite for risk which also benefited Bitcoin, but not enough to confirm a breakout above $40,000.

Among the headwinds preventing Bitcoin from making a sustained recovery is the strength of the dollar, which is on track for its best month since 2012, in April.

From a technical point of view, the daily chart continues to depict a clear downward trend. In particular, we can clearly see a downward trend line since the beginning of the month.

In addition, the 100-day moving average, currently just below the $41,000 mark, is also a significant bullish barrier.

If the downward trend continues, the $37,000-38,000 area can be considered as the first important support.

Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) becomes the first bank to offer a secured loan in Bitcoin.

In the latest important news about Bitcoin, according to reports from Bloomberg last night, Goldman Sachs has set up a Bitcoin-backed loan for the first time.

Goldman's secured lending facility allowed a borrower to use Bitcoin (BTC) as collateral for a cash loan.

Remember that Goldman Sachs, which has a dedicated digital assets team, was the first major bank to trade bitcoin options over-the-counter at Galaxy Digital last month.
