- BTC/USD recovery falters on approach to $7,400.
- The support levels below the current price are virtually non-existent.
BTC/USD has been moving to and fro in a tight range amid low trading activity. Many traders are off for a holiday season, which makes the market vulnerable to sharp movements; however, no sharp movements have been registered so far. At the time of writing, BTC/USD is changing hands at $7,180, mostly unchanged both on a day-to-day basis and since the beginning of Friday. Bitcoin's market dominance settled at 68.7% as many altcoins failed to recover to the levels that preceded the sell-off.
