Bitcoin broke its immediate support and noted a dip of over 7 percent in an hour on 23 October 2019. Almost an hour before, $201.1 million longs were liquidated on BitMEX.
Bitcoin had been on its road to recovery since 24 September, when the price fell under $10k. With the bulls failing to have an impact on the market momentum, the king coin was pulled to areas under the $8k mark.
Further, analysis had indicated the formation of Bart pattern on Bitcoin charts. It had already begun its descent towards the support, which was already tested five times before.
