Bitcoin (BTC) started the week in consolidation, ahead of a key week of economic data from the United States.
Following a high of $22,497.00 on Sunday, BTC/USD slipped to an intraday low of $22,331.31 earlier in the session.
As a result of the move, the world’s largest cryptocurrency sank closer to a recent support point at the $22,300 zone.
Overall, the recent rise in bearish sentiment has caused bitcoin to fall by as much as 5% in the last seven-day period.
A downward crossover between the 10-day (red), and 25-day (blue) moving averages has also transpired, which could be a sign of further sell-offs to come.
