BITCOIN(BTC)

As of the morning hours, BTC is priced at $ 70,340 with a loss of 1.38%. For the third time, it seems that stability above $71,000 has not been achieved. A triple top formation has formed. For this reason, withdrawals may occur. $68,500 appears as the first support position. If there is an upward reaction from here, the $ 71,000 level may be broken upwards. In the downside reaction, retreats may be seen up to $67,000, which is the next support position.
