An expected correction  

After two weeks of positivity, Bitcoin appeared in extremely overbought territory. Now, it is experiencing an expected correction that sent its price back to the $5,000 level. That comes just a day after BTC reached $5,350 on Apr. 10, but the inevitable selling pressure puts the market bears back in charge.

Yet, the fact that Bitcoin appeared in such a predicament is hardly an indicator of another prolonging bearish downtrend. Economist Alex Krüger claims that we shouldn’t expect a pullback to $4000. He would be ‘surprised’ to see the BTC price dropping below the $4,400 level.

Altcoins follow the lead

Almost all top 50 cryptocurrencies are currently painted in the red after the Bitcoin price hit a snag. Those coins that gained the most during Bitcoin’s recent bullish momentum, such as Litecoin, EOS, and Bitcoin Cash, now see their prices drop dramatically with the former appearing to be the biggest loser among the top 10 altcoins.
