The price of BTC did manage to secure some market bears as it hammered in at a support level of $48,000 on the 28th of December. Now, it does appear that the rally at the end of the year that most of the crypto traders are hoping for, will actually have to be postponed for the next year.
According to data that was received from TradingView and Cointelegraph Markets Pro, it has been seen that an early morning wave of selling crashed through the Bitcoin support at $50,000, which was then followed by a second wave in the early part of the afternoon which soon dropped the top cryptocurrency to a daily low of $47,318.
