Consequently, it is advisable for traders to focus on short-term positions at this time. Until there’s a significant surge in trading volume that could possibly disrupt the overall downward trend, the prudent strategy would be to buy during lows and sell during highs to secure profits.


Ethereum (ETH), on the other hand, has mirrored Bitcoin’s performance but displayed more stability. Like Bitcoin, Ethereum has also been suppressed by the descending trendline on the 4-hour chart and experienced a slight correction early today.
