- Invalidation of the bullish macro thesis remains at $13,880.
Tesla has reportedly sold 75% of its BTC holdings as the company faced Q2 cashflow constrictions. The innovative electric-powered car company sold over $950 million worth of their Bitcoin holdings for an average price of $29,000.
Bitcoin price is unnfased by Elon
CEO Elon Musk attributed Tesla's lack of cash flow to manufacturing stalemates due to the coronavirus pandemic in Shanghai. He also re-assured his confidence in Bitcoin, saying he "intends to buy more in the future."
Bitcoin price currently auctions at $22,400. The Bitcoin price has sparsely reacted to the bearish news as the uptrend channel has been breached in intra-hour time frames.

Although fundamentalists may have mathematical theories on Tesla's future impact on the original peer-to-peer crypto, the technicals are still bullishly intact. The Bitcoin market cap remains over one trillion.
From an Elliot Wave perspective, Bitcoin maintains its bullish macro stance. $13,880 is the invalidation level to call it quits. If $13,880 were to get touched, the entire macro count would be in jeopardy, and a bear market targeting the coronavirus lows at $3,500 could ensue.
