• BTC/USD is vulnerable to further losses amid range-bound trading.

Bitcoin (BTC) is glued to $8,300 level. The first cryptocurrency has been hovering around this barrier since Friday’s failed attempt to break above SMA200 (Simple Moving Average) daily. The coin topped at $8,800 and returned to the previous range in a matter of hours amid crypto whales activity. At the time of writing, BTC/USD is changing hands at $8,3010,  mostly unchanged both on a day-on-day basis and since the beginning of Monday.
