Bitcoin on Monday, September 25, recorded a loss of 1.38 percent. At the time of writing, the value of Bitcoin stood at the price point of $26,207 (roughly Rs. 21.7 lakh). The most expensive cryptocurrency has largely traded between the price marks of $23,000 (roughly Rs. 19 lakh) to $28,000 (roughly Rs. 23 lakh). Around Friday last week, the value of Bitcoin slipped below the mark of $27,000 (roughly Rs. 22.4 lakh). Most cryptocurrencies recorded price dips today alongside Bitcoin.
"Bitcoin remained above the $26,000 mark (roughly Rs. 50,000) despite stock market declines and a stronger US dollar, indicating its resilience. From a technical standpoint, Bitcoin's price action is currently influenced by two key levels: the 200-weekly Exponential Moving Average (EMA) at $24,700 (roughly Rs. 20.5 lahks), which could provide support, and the 200-weekly Simple Moving Average (SMA) at $27,800 (roughly Rs. 23 lakh), which may act as resistance. These levels are expected to play significant roles in shaping Bitcoin's price movement in the coming weeks,"
