The price of Bitcoin dropped on Tuesday, as people were waiting for new figures about shopping sales in the USA. After two months of going down, it looks like the shopping activity will get better and prices won’t rise so much. Ethereum stays above $1,800.
Analysts Watch United States Spending as Bitcoin Price Declines
Today, the market for Bitcoin (BTC) stayed steady as people waited to see the newest figures about how much money was spent during April in United States stores. Analysts think that spending might go up a bit, after dropping two months in a row due to falling inflation. At first, BTC/USD traded for around $27,646.35 each but then it decreased to $26,878.95 on Tuesday. After that, it got back up and is currently being sold at $27,097.23 per coin.
Today’s drop in price happened because it failed to break the 42.00 mark on the RSI. This index is now at 41.06, and if things keep going down, the lowest point could be 38.00.
800 Resistance Point Reached

There has been a kind of price limit or “price floor” at $1,820 since Wednesday – which came after six days in a row when prices were going down.
