5. Crystal Ball price predictions
6000$ support is very week, if BTC will challenge it one more time most likely it will breach it. To get signals for reverse, BTC should breach 7500$ resistance and stay above it. Right now I am still bearish and aiming for 4800$ to 5100$.
BTC dominance under 40% already for month, probably it will change when we see reverse in trajectory.
Be calm and drink tea.
