This week, Bitcoin experienced a significant drop in its market value, causing concerns among retail speculators who may have incurred losses due to the extreme volatility. The price of Bitcoin fluctuated within a range of nearly 2,700 points, with its weekly high reaching $28,176 and its low hitting $25,451, ultimately settling in a critical zone.

The sharp decline in BTC's value, exacerbated by the loss of key moving averages and the breach of the $27,000 level, can be attributed to negative market sentiment and delays in the approval of spot Bitcoin Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) by the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

As of the time of writing, Bitcoin is maintaining a relatively stable position around the $26,000 mark. However, it's worth noting that buyers have witnessed the breach of this $26,000 support level, though they have managed to hold their ground, albeit with some difficulty.

Analyzing the situation from a trend-based fib extension perspective, the $26,000 range has emerged as a pivotal point. A drop below this level could potentially result in further price declines over the long term.

It's important to highlight that there isn't any major negative news currently driving the market downturn. On the contrary, buyers appear cautious about entering new positions, and market volatility seems to have decreased, potentially favoring the bears.

Examining the hourly price chart, Bitcoin has approached its weekly low of $25,466 on two occasions. However, the RSI indicator has consistently shown higher lows. Currently, the RSI is on the cusp of surpassing the moving average line. Nevertheless, it's important to note that this may not necessarily signify a positive trend due to the prevailing low volatility.

According to data sourced from The Block, despite the cryptocurrency market's roller-coaster ride this week, on-chain data indicates a rise in transactions on the Bitcoin Network, increasing from 415,000 to 430,000. While this uptick in activity hasn't had a significant impact on BTC's price, it has raised concerns among investors given the increased activity amidst the ongoing sell-off.
