This sell-off broke several important support levels. If the trend continues, in the near future we can expect BTC quotes to return to $12 and below.

Reason for the decline

The sudden sell-off in the cryptocurrency market seems to be related to the crisis in the global stock markets. The nerves of investors around the world have been paralyzed by the unprecedented policies from the Fed and other central banks. To combat the effects of the pandemic, the regulator is raising interest rates and tightening control over digital assets. This forces investors to abandon high-risk assets.

Yesterday, the news about the ban on cryptocurrencies in Russia played a negative role, as well as the new US SEC report, in which they announced active development of the stablecoin ecosystem. According to the regulator, such a currency will be a good alternative to bank digital money and cryptocurrencies.
