- BTC/USD is hovering around $10,300 amid range-bound ahead of the European opening.
- The next critical resistance awaits BTC bulls at $10,700.
Bitcoin (BTC) has entered a rangebound phase after a strong growth during early Asian hours. The first digital currency hit $10,668 amid notable anti-risk sentiments caused by the US-China trade war escalation. However, the upside proved to be unsustainable so far as the price failed to clear a technical barrier created on approach to $10,700.
