Bitcoin (BTC) has once again hit a snag after rallying above $10,000. At 2:37 UTC, the coin's price collapsed to its intraday low of $9,587 on the Gemini exchange before bouncing back to the $9,700 level.
According to trader DonAlt, the bears remain in the driver's seat, which means that BTC is not going to rally any time soon.
Bitcoin could struggle to hit $10,000 again
Bitcoin didn't stay in the five-digit reality for long this time around. The bears pushed its price below the make-it-or-break-it $10,000 level within one hourly candle on Feb. 23.
Now, DonAlt, who accurately predicted BTC's rally in January, seems to think that the top coin is not going to see the aforementioned price "for a quite a while."
In his previous tweet, DonAlt explained that his bear case was based on Bitcoin's failure to take out its mid-term top of $10,607.
The most obvious drop
The latest Bitcoin (BTC) price drop might not come as a surprise for CME gap cultists. This week, BTC has once again was forced into the gap that was created over the weekend when the market was closed in the US.
Given how many traders closely follow these gaps, they might have already become self-fulfilling prophecies. Last week, BTC spiked to nearly $10,300 to fill a bullish gap before crashing seven percent just one day after that.
