At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading at $8,301, which is below the current 200-day moving average of $8,322.

The Bitcoin price has already crossed below the 200 MA since the brutal 15 percent drop, but it never stayed there for a long time. However, if there a UTC close below this major support level, the anticipated descent to $7,500 would be pretty much confirmed.

As reported by U.Today, trading expert Josh Rager predicted that altcoins could drop by more than 20 percent one more time in case of another major BTC price drop.
