Over the past week, Bitcoin is down by 3% as the price retraced around $38,000. While BTC price declined, so did Ethereum by more than 4% and other top 10 altcoins dropped from 4% to 14%.
Bitcoin’s bearish pull started after the price was pulled below the $39,000 support zone and the flagship currency even saw the price trading around $38,000.
On the first day of May, Bitcoin declined to hover around $37,000 but that didn’t last long as the price saw a move above $38,200. At the press time, the Bitcoin price is trading at $38,986 with an increase of 2.69% over the last 24hrs.
What’s In For May 2022
In the month of April, the Bitcoin price saw a decline of 16.2% making up for the previous two-month rise. This is considered the worst performance of Bitcoin in just a month.
The Bitcoin price predictions for the month of May 2022 have a mixed approach.
After the Federal Reserve’s rate hikes, Bitcoin had its aftereffects resulting in a correction. While considering the current performance of the flagship currency, we can say that if Bitcoin Price fails to clear the $39,000 resistance, then this can lead to another fresh decline and drag the price around the $36,000 zone.
