Bitcoin price has fallen by 1.14 percent as bulls caved under the selling pressure and breached a crucial Fibonacci support level.
At $267.15, Bitcoin could witness continued dumping and is expected to hit $256, if $260 is pierced.
A technical check of the daily BTC-USD price chart has been given below.
Bitcoin Chart Structure – As can be seen, Bitcoin failed to sustain above the $270-mark and is now nearing its recent low of $260. The resistance on the upside remains the base of the descending triangle at around $277.

Relative Strength Index – Like all other indicators, the 14-day RSI has also declined, to 42.3092.
Bitcoin, at the current price level, does not offer an attractive trading opportunity. Let the price move a bit more towards the extremes i.e. either $260 or $275 before initiating a trade.
Another sense that I am getting from the Bitcoin market is that this week may be of small moves, maximum 5 percent on either side. So, it will test the patience of the market participants and they must remain patient and let the price come to attractive trading levels. Place strict stop-losses and go ahead with only those trades which offer a risk-reward ratio of at least 1:2.5.
Volatility is expected to remain relatively low in the coming sessions as well.
