Bitcoin (BTC) recently dropped to its intraday low of $8,873 at 16:17 UTC on the Gemini exchange. However, its 14 percent rout might that took place over the last two weeks might be only the start of a real massacre.

Now that the US equities are in the midst of a relief rally (the Dow is up by more than 400 points at press time), it remains to be seen whether the bulls will manage to take hold of the cryptocurrency market after days of bearish price action.
