Bitcoin disappointment most investors who were anticipating a break above $6,000 on Thursday with declines that slipped slightly below the support at $5,000. The losses come after the bulls propelled Bitcoin above $5,400 level yesterday. The gains were, however, short-lived as Bitcoin dropped below several key support levels at $5,300 and $5,200.
