The leading cryptocurrency has undergone a massive correction of a parabolic uptrend, which has been relevant for more than two weeks. It is noteworthy that the fall was accompanied by a substantial increase in trading volumes on the exchanges.

However, the fall did not last too long; on June 28, Bitcoin held a rally, having added more than 6% per hour: the price rose from $10,300, to $11,908, which also affected the rise in prices of some altcoins.

Over the quarter, BTC has increased by 183%, which is the best indicator in the last 1.5 years.

What is more important, Bitcoin has set the new trading volume index over the 24 hours of more than $46 bln.

Another record was fixed on the CME platform, where Bitcoin contracts worth $1.7 bln were exchanged. This is the highest level ever recorded, both in terms of the number of contracts exchanged (29,225) and in terms of value.

From a technical point of view, Bitcoin has followed our scenario, and the price rolled back to the corridor of $11,500-$11,800.

Another bearish signal can be considered RSI in the region of 50. The probable continuation of the correction is indicated by the breakdown of the moving average (MA) with a period of 50.

Thus, continuing the fall, the price may be in the range of $10,000-$10,300.

On the daily time frame, the situation is different. Bullish structures from rising highs are still relevant. Besides, MA 5 and 10 are directed to the “north”. Thus, in a more extended period, the path of least resistance lies up.

The price of BTC is trading at $11,814 at the time of writing.
