RSI reaches March 2020 levels
At that time, BTC / USD plummeted to $ 3,600, then staged a recovery that would last until the following year. The daily RSI currently stands at a value of 20, well below of what is traditionally considered “oversold.”
“A more reliable figure than Bitcoin alone is the overall market capitalization, currently at the next support level. Meanwhile, the daily RSI has reached its lowest level since March 2020,” he has declared Michaël van de Poppe, Cointelegraph trader and contributor.
“Equity sentiment is also at its lowest level since March 2020. That speaks volumes.”
Equity markets also took a hit over the weekend, especially tech-related stocks.
