- Bitcoin price under pressure late on Tuesday, nursing losses of 2.5%.
- $3500 is the last major barrier ahead of $3000 coming under threat again.
The Bitcoin price was seen under pressure in the very latter stages of trading on Tuesday. BTC/USD was in negative territory by some 2.5%. Across the cryptocurrency market, it continues to remain non-committal in terms of trend, after the decent bull run mid-December.
BTC/USD is subject to another retest of the $3500 level, where the price managed to bounce between 13-14th January. It is the only major barrier ahead of $3000 being under threat, which could be very punishing this time, if bears move in for this support again.
The price is gunning for a full reversal of that unexpected and aggressive buying seen on 14th January. BTC/USD during that large spike had initially jumped a big 4.5% within a very short time frame.
