The BTC had been falling for four consecutive trading sessions and today is finally trying to rise. Again. The asset is balancing at $19,489.
The current technical picture shows that the global market pressure and tension, which are very difficult to overcome, are pushing the BTC down to support levels at $19,300-$19,400. If bears break them, the asset may drop to $16,000 or even $12,500. What happens next depends on market activity and liquidity: if there is little money and orders, the price will go down fast and deep.

The company is $70 million shy of paying off its debts. Just like Celsius, Vauld has been experiencing difficulties after the BTC, ETH, and UST started falling.
